Flower Quiz

This is my answer. Isabelle picked the square with all the roses and Joseph picked the Gerber daisies. Just some of the quizzes we just had fun doing. Good thing these things aren't for real! Unfortunatly I do forget names! Faces I do better at. I did wave at someone this week who I thought recognized and realized as soon as I did it that it wasn't who I thought it was!

What These Carnations Say About You

You have a distinct style... one that many people find fascinating.

You are charming and alluring. People are drawn to you - and you are very popular.

You never forget a name or a face. And the people you love are always on your mind

Sandwhich Quiz

The kids wanted to do some quizzes. This is my answer on the sandwhich quiz. Sounds kind of boring!
You Are a Ham Sandwich
You are quiet, understated, and a great comfort to all of your friends.
Over time, you have proven yourself as loyal and steadfast.
And you are by no means boring. You do well in any situation - from fancy to laid back.

Your best friend: The Turkey Sandwich

Your mortal enemy: The Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Happy Easter!

I did not get a picture of us dressed up, but we were just so tired yesterday. We had a half day of school on Thursday and were busy all weekend long. Some friends convinced me to get up early and run a women's race on Saturday morning. I'll admit, it was fun!
The kids have a day off today and I'm so glad. I ate sugar and cake and bad candy (I don't even really like candy!) this weekend and I'm having a sugar and bad food "hangover" today. I wish I could blame it on something or someone else, but...!

Garden update

This is our little garden in the backyard so far. The kids love to help plant and water. It's really fun for all of us!
Do you see that trail behind Joseph? That's Mavis's (our border collie) track. We have fenced off that area and she is not happy! She "patrol's" our yard all day long and now that corner is blocked off and she is really worried! Since we moved to this house Mavis has lost a lot of weight because she is so busy and our yard is so much bigger. There are geese and birds, possums and who knows what, plus lot of children around. She has a big job keeping us safe! Our lab Sarah, is getting older, but she is much happier here too and she can't stand the cat next door who sits just on the other side of the fence licking her paws and driving our dogs mad!

This was our crazy hail storm on Saturday. It beat up Joseph's lima bean plant, but I think it'll survive anyway.

First Garden Plant

This is Joseph's lima bean. He started it in Sunday school as a seed and it outgrew the paper cup and so right now it's in the pot. Later we will transfer it to the garden.

Little Love Notes

Isabelle and Joseph are always writing me little love notes. This one is from Isabelle. She writes
less often, but they are more elaborate.
Joseph writes me little notes all the time. He's learned how to fold paper
and make hearts and he writes to me on them. This one isn't a heart, but
is one that he used stickers to tape two pieces of paper together.

My appointment

is today for finishing up the root canal! Aren't y'all excited? I know I am (not)! They called yesterday and wondered if I would mind moving it up from next week to today?
So at 11AM this morning please think of me lying back getting shots in the mouth gripping my hands together and trying to to act like a big girl!
