Jeff was able to come which was a special treat. The girls stood by their projects and answered questions from the judges and others. After all was said and done, Katie tied for 1st place in the preschool category and Mandy tied for 4th place (with her good friend, Hannah) in the 4th grade category! We were so proud of them! We all learned a lot and the girls got experience in public speaking, too.
- Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

My girls participated in their first Educational Fair this weekend. They worked very hard on their projects and were quite excited about the event (so were we!). Mandy did her project on poisonous plants. Did you know that tomato leaves and stems are poisonous and so is uncooked asparagus? This was news to me... I don't usually crave these things, but you never know.. Katie did her project on butterflies. Did you know that only 2 out of approximately 100 butterfly eggs survive? The next time I see a butterfly I will appreciate it much more than before.
