Five on Friday

  • Today I am working on this little cross-stitch project I came across here. I’m using the same colors she did, but I have 5 hearts instead of 4…I love the ombre effect.
  • Today, Harper and I headed down to the basement to play with the trains, but instead ended up pulling down lots of board games that he’s much too young for. IMG_1012
  • Today, I realized that I never blogged about Zoe’s weight lifter. She made him in her 3-D art class, and while it isn’t her best work, it’s still pretty good for her first time. I know I couldn’t do that! IMG_1015
  • Today, the fifth graders went on a field trip to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He told me he’d rather stay at school and do work than go listen to instruments, but I sent him on his way anyways. I tried to explain that the people playing those instruments were exceptional at what they did, even if we found it boring to watch…but, I completely sympathize with him…and didn’t bother to sign up to chaperone on this field trip!
  • Tonight we are headed out to the skating rink for a school fundraiser. Landon has been dying to go skating and this is the perfect opportunity to let him get out there and skate his little heart out! I sure hope he has fun, and I’ve got to remember to make more of an effort to get him out to do this kind of thing. I know the desire to go skating doesn’t last forever…gotta let him enjoy it while he’s little!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
