door poster

My daughter's teacher never got a teacher appreciation poster. It breaks my heart that her teacher didn't get that, so I stayed up late tonight making one. Not my best work, but it beats nothing.

How can anyone look at this and think dandelions are noxious weeds? I saw several people out spraying them today.

I love them; I think they are pretty flowers. I will admit that I let my kids pick them to their hearts' content, which I don't allow with regular flowers. Maybe that is one of the reasons I like them.

5th grade day at the symphony

Today K got to go to the symphony. She dressed up, curled her hair and everything. Unfortunately, she has my impossible to curl hair, so it's already straight again, and she hadn't even left for school.

My idea of a joke

Yes folks, those are PINK satin sheets. I found them on clearance at Target for $12, and decided to play a little joke on my dh.

Unfortunately, my kids all had really weird looks on their faces when I took pictures, or the photo was blurry.

Took the kids swimming for a couple hours. S went NUTS and had a blast. I gave her an oreo cookie as we got in the car (don't tell my husband!).

No Nap Today

Believe me, I am just as upset about it as she is. It wasn't for lack for trying on my part.

This is what happens when I pick my photo early in the day. I end up having something else happen, and you get TWO photos.

?????? (actually, there was also a hearse in the parking lot, so I'm guessing that minivan was parked there so they could put flowers or something else equally tough to cart across the lawn and into the chapel for a funeral.

We have a runaway in our yard. This used to happen pretty frequently, but hasn't happened in several months. Our neighbors board three horses in their yard, but there really isn't enough grazing area for three horses, so they started breaking through the fence to our yard, which has plenty of stuff to graze on. We gave the horse owners permission to bring their horses over any time to let them graze, but in general, when they do that, they either have someone "babysitting" or they tied the horse to something so it couldn't get away.
