New Faucet

Due to the amount of grass seed we will need to plant in a few weeks we decided to install a faucet in the middle of the yard. Plus I don't want to carry buckets to the garden forever from the house. It is a long way. So we started on Saturday and finished on Monday and I am so glad it is done. It feels so good to finish a big project. And the girls think it is cool.

Free Stuff II

I forgot some really exciting news. A week ago we got a new range. For free. It is such a deal. You might be wondering how this is possible. Well, we are doing a test/survey type deal. So we will have this one for three months and then they will switch it for a different one and we will have that one for three months. Either way they both will be much better than the one I had so it really is a great blessing to be able to participate. I just have to check some boxes each time i use it and do a few interviews. Not bad for this new beauty.

Melty Beads

Have you ever felt like you have made a few too many of these things?

School Starts For My Baby

Yep, it is time. Sinclaire started kindergarten yesterday. She was so excited and a bit nervous. It is hard to believe that i have a little person riding the bus.
After school yesterday she said the bus was her favorite thing about the day. She also got to color two pictures, play on the playground, and i am sure numerous other things that she forgot.
Kit is now dying to go to school. Which is funny because until yesterday she was saying that she just wanted to stay home with me.

New Hobby For Tiny

Tiny just keeps carrying books around everywhere. And wanting to sleep with them. It is so bizarre. His favorite are The Berenstain Bears. Maybe this is a sign, and I can hope he always loves to read.

Jungle Jim's

A week ago today we went to Cincinnati to visit Jungle Jim's, a store that has everything you could want. And to see my friend Gillian.

Sinclaire at the entry of the store. It is like a little zoo. They loved it.

Pigs feet. It is the first thing they wanted to see.

Duck feet, why?

Duck heads, even a bigger why.

This was the potty. Red lined seat and everything. Not really, they had port-a-potty doors instead of real doors for the potty's. Very cleaver I thought.

The biggest pez I have ever seen.

A dancing Elvis animal. They loved it.

The trip comes to an end and they thought it was great. If I am ever in the neighborhood again I will go. They had this candy that I had when I was little called Zotz. It fizzes out both ends when you put it in your mouth. I love them. I gave one to Tiny and it was so fun to watch his face. You could tell he was very unsure about what was going on in his mouth. And it started foaming too. I just love him. I have great kids.

Then we went to spend the day with Gillian and Oran and Lucy. They all played together so well and it was so fun to talk to Gillian. I miss living by her and being able to craft with her. I had a wonderful day. It is always nice to catch up with old friends.
