These are so fun!

Indie Collective

It's official, I'm an indie shop!!


This is the coolest thing I've run into in a long, long time: ArtPad. Not only can you paint your own masterpiece (or disasterpiece), but you can watch how other people painted their pictures. Like this one:

Luke Learns to Ride a Bike!

It was a very busy day today. Action packed. The biggest and best thing was that Luke learned how to ride a bike! I wasn't sure if it was going to happen, but then it all clicked and he was off. He is so proud and I am too.

And the world came crashing down

Well...the world didn't really crash down... it was my coat closet. Frank says he can't fix it 'til this weekend... so maybe I'll give it a try; I don't know what else to do with this mess.

Happy Beads

I won some beautiful happy beads today on ebay, made by Darla of Darla Designs. They will become a bracelet I think. Or maybe a necklace... or a bracelet and a necklace. Whatever, I love them!

Show & Tell

Luke has his first show and tell today at school. We've been planning for a month what he would bring with him. I tried to talk him into bringing his Megalodon tooth fossil, but he said he wanted a big, green, sparkley rock that glowed in the dark... so we went to the rock store and got one - a pretty green garnet - very green and very sparkley. It does not glow in the dark however, but it did meet all his other requirements. Then he lost it, and instead of trying to find it, he said he wanted to bring his dinosaur tooth. So we stuck that in his pocket and I also pulled out the green garnet and put that in his other pocket, which made him very happy. On the way to school I had him practice what he was going to say about the tooth and rock... and we got to talking about how I heard on the news they found live tissue in dino bones recently and wow, what that could mean for science - they could clone a real T-Rex now maybe - and he of course took that to mean they found a real T-rex and by the time we got to school the story was now "I heard it on the news that dinosaurs are alive and I just know it!". There was no talking him down... I can't wait to find out how it went.

Lamp Shade

Poor Kesia started messing around with the staples in her leg and we had to bring her in for a patch job and she was sent home with this lampshade to wear. And, even worse, she has to wait an extra week to get the staples out. Poor, poor girl.

First Post

I'm sampling bloggers.... this was by far the easiest one to set up.... aside from the one I've been keeping on my own site for over a year now.... I may just have to keep it. Plus the green is so calming and soothing... I may never want to leave.
