As a kindergartner, they have "choice time" (centers) every day. It would seem that Ms. W doesn't even bother asking where Lil wants to play anymore, and just sends her off to the art center.
During choice time Friday, Lil found pieces of red plastic netting and made two hats--one for herself, and one for Beanie.
Ellie LOVED hers and is still carrying it around, asking, "A-hep 'oo?" ("help you").
The hats lasted most of the day but finally died when the kids went running through the sprinklers. ;o)
The kids from the child formation classes all got together to sing and perform for the parents and it was SO sweet. :o) You can see the naked piggers on most of the kiddos since they had to be called over from the bounce houses to participate.
It was everything a church function should be: mixed aged, tons of kids, amazingly awesome food, and fantastic fellowship. The kids were off playing and having a grand time being kids while the adults chatted and visited. Seconds and thirds were had on desserts (not by me--however, Lil stated she was too stuffed to eat dinner and then was complaining of a stomach ache) and there were cake walks, egg tosses and obstacle courses. :o) I've been craving something like that and didn't know it. I always loved the third Friday fellowship suppers when I was a kid and this was rather like that (only on a once-a-year-grander scale).
I'm longing for a weekend where I can just sit and do nothing but I don't see one of those happening in the near future...Oh well. Gee it's tough being in such demand. ;o)
1. Holly doggy chillin'.
2. Georgie Porgy getting some window action in the Bean's room.
3. I don't have to report for jury duty tomorrow--HALLELUJAH!! I'm still haunted by the murder trial I had to sit on eight years ago. I just don't want to have to do that ever again.
4. So, Brien and I had a date Friday night. See:
5. The birthday party and church picnic. Sure, I didn't necessarily have a relaxing weekend, but I sure had fun.
6. For some reason, this State Farm commercial really cracked me up. I've gotten a kick out of it the past three times I've seen it. Not many commercials can hold up to that many viewings, you know?
Milestone (of a sort):
We've come to the point that Hannah has been gone long enough that I assume if folks know they'll tell other folks so it came as a surprise today when my friend from church, Catherine, said she didn't know about Hannah. We were talking about our children and how we would love to have more, but that it just wasn't in the cards. Hannah was mentioned and Catherine looked rather flummoxed. Oh how I hate it when that happens. I always feel so awful when folks look so shocked, and quite frankly, uncomfortable. That's something I've not managed to get used to. :sigh: I will talk about Hannah to anyone all day long, but that's assuming they know about her. I don't like making folks feel bad. I know I shouldn't worry about them and let them worry about themselves, but that's just not how I'm made. :oS
