There are too many little things that make it onto Instagram that I would normally blog about. So here is a post of pictures of happenings around here the last couple of months.
We got the game, Would You Rather?, and it is a lot of fun. Some of the questions really make you think, some are silly and outrageous and some are just funny. We play it a lot.
Whatever it takes to make you feel like a winner. Novalie’s friend got this for free at a yard sale to give to Novalie. It was super funny.
Night out to The Training Table. They were proud of their jackets.
Nice days to start the outdoor tennis season.
Several trips to swim to beat the cabin fever.
Pulling out the summer toys on sunny, warmish days.
5th grade field trip. They have studied the American presidents and the states this year. They went to the Treehouse Museum were they have a whole floor dedicated to American history. Novalie is sitting behind a replica of the desk in the oval office.
They also put on a play during their fieldtrip. Novalie was chosen to be in it. She was Slue-foot Sue.
Cover for her president’s report. The whole class groaned, including Novalie, when she pulled President Obama for her president. She got a 200/200 on her report and learned a lot about the current president which was a good experience.
Lemonade stand. This is their most favorite thing to do and would do one every single day if I let them. They are not shy at all and flag down cars. They are going places, these two.
Cute spring baby lambs! This baby was lying on its mama’s back. It was super cute. You are never too old to stop and admire baby animals.
Good Luck Charlie ended. We were sad. We had a little party. We miss the Duncan’s.
When tennis balls are worn out, we send them to their death. Past our house is a big steep hill and somewhere down there a dog has a collection of our tennis balls. Or a sewer drain has a collection. Where ever they end up, we hit them as hard as we can from our driveway down that hill. Even in our Sunday best.
Novalie and I went to a cookie convention. We thought it was going to be a big, huge thing, but really it was a small room with probably around 200 cookies decorated. They had some beautiful cookies that were much too pretty to eat. And they had a bunch of fun ones like this dragon.
Late night book report. I have to say this was Novalie’s first night before forgotten school project. Having one child, I usually stay pretty well on top of things, but this thing just snuck up on us. She got it done and got a 100%.
These two really wanted it to be warm enough to swim outside, but it just wasn’t. They set up a beach inside. Problem solved.
We have seen the Lego movie twice. It is a cute and funny movie. Novalie has always wanted Legos, but besides some as gifts, I have never wanted her to have them because I wanted them to be something special she looked forward to doing at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Kevin and Novalie both wanted her to have some being inspired by the movie and have you seen the girl Lego collection now? Super cute. We got her her first kit and they had so much fun putting it together.
