Happy Birthday, Ruby Elizabeth!

Today we met a little friend of Ruby’s for lunch at a local restaurant called The Frosty Frog.  It was a sweet lunch!  The girls enjoyed being together.  They are so cute! Before that we went to Target where Ruby got to pick out a present.  Things have been so crazy with the end-of-the-year stuff and then with Josh being […]

Around the house/yard

Ready for church! I like Mack’s hair spikey…he is not sure about it. Mack found a pair of winter gloves and put them on his feet. “HELP ME!” The girls got creative and found these boxes to slide down the hill on. (on which to slide down the hill—that is the correct way, I know, but it sounds kind of […]

Silly Bandz!

So, I caved.  I gave in and bought (with Josh’s hard-earned money) rubber bracelets in the shapes of different things.  They were not cheap.  Ruby had dropped hints like, “EVERYONE in my class has them.”  I liked this one, too: “Katherine has them all the way up to here!!!” (pointing to her elbow…a slight exaggeration) I got each kid a […]

Randomness I want to remember

Today at the book store, Mack and Molly went straight to the kid’s section and found many cute books that they LOVED.  We only got two…THREE LITTLE PIGS because Mack asks me to tell him that story every time he potties big.  Ruby was shocked to find out that the wolf actually does eat two of the little pigs.  I […]

Graduation Day

It’s Ruby’s graduation day from Kindergarten.  I’ve got the camera battery charging, everyone’s clothes ironed and ready to go, and I have a pack of tissues.  Oh–and I just made almost 75 fish-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! I am so happy for her.  We have had a wonderful year learning reading, writing, and arithmetic—as well as some social and emotional lessons.  Ruby has been a fabulous student.  I love seeing her read book after book after book.  I am just so very proud of her.  I can’t wait to post pictures for all of the family to see!  It should be a cute night.  Ruby won’t tell me much about it because, “It’s a SURPRISE, Mom.” Pictures coming soon…..
