These weeds are frequently lovingly picked and sitting in vases in my kitchen from Kathleen and Hayley always did so as well. Gotta love the bright yellow dandelions! LOL
Last week Hayley had her chorus, vocal ensemble and band recital for her school along with her art show.
Very busy last week, then this Thursday she has her band concert, a big one with all the other schools.
She also won a coloring contest at the YMCA and received this shirt and lanyard and $25.00 towards a class or other items at the YMCA. :-)
Today Kathleen baked with me and I was teaching her more about measurements and cooking.
Sunflower seeds already to go! She planted 5 in her little yellow pot.
Now the wait begins! She also started her journal to record her findings. :-) It was so cute because about an hour later she ran up to the window sill will her stool and was looking to see if it started to grow yet. :-)
I was also able to go into her school this morning as a secret reader! She was so over the top excited when I walked in the door with the biggest smile ever! I can not even tell you how much that made my day!
I read :
What Makes a Rainbow by Betty Ann Schwartz
I'm Gonna like Me by Jamie Lee Curtis
The Knot Fairy by Bobbie Hinman (great book about how the knot fairy visits and ties knots in little boys and girls hair while they sleep)
The Napping house by Audrey Wood (One of our all time favorites!, the kids just loved this one and laughed and laughed)
We did some clothes shopping for the girls this weekend and Jerry and I got a few things too. Kohl's was having 20 % off and $10.00 Kohl's cash back for every $50.00 spent so we had some money saved to prepare them for summer and getting new shoes. They have outgrown most everything from last year!
I was super excited when Jerry told me to get this dutch oven while it was on sale! I have been wanting one forever! It' s cast iron and super heavy! LOL But it should last a long time. :-) Now to try to lift it on and off the stove! ;-)
Our patio area is just about done, but I'm not posting pictures until it's how I want it, lol. It's a work in progress.
Hoping to get around to visiting your blogs tonight, I've been behind and I am anxious to catch up and see what you have all been up to! Heading out to the YMCA again tonight after I cook up a meal for the girls. Since Kathleen and I were so busy inside and outside this afternoon looks like I will be doing schoolwork late again. :-)
Have a great week!!!!!!
