This is another one of the entries that Truman showed at the fair. Grace and Anna Mae made a stepping stone too. We have supplies for Cole when he gets back – don’t worry.

The stepping-stones were made with a kit. We found everything we needed at Hobby Lobby.

I put Tim in charge of this one – I thought the kids could use some Dad time doing something other than sports. It was a hit and will be great in the yard. I love that I have a plan for all the projects this year…

Hey Cole,

Thanks for making us all go to State Fair today to see your exhibit on bees.  I hope the pictures all turn out that were taken.  I haven’t been to state fair in years and it was a perfect day to go … not too hot and not too cold.  I did enjoy seeing what the 4-H kids do, and I was very impressed with the art work and photos!  I’m sure that Anna liked the clothing stuff like Ella!  Your bee hive was very interesting and it was wonderful that you received the honor of having something at the STATE FAIR!

Thanks for the trip 🙂

I don’t know how my mother kept her sanity when we were little. She had the four of us signed up for anything and everything that we wanted to try. It was a wonderful self-less act of survival, love, and time spent in a VW Golf . I’m having flashback of  highschool hearing the muffler a mile away – but I digress…

The spring “busy season” is in full swing. Soccer, baseball, tennis, dance, choir, 4-H and all the rest of the spring activities will keep us moving. I complain – yes, but I do love it all. The kids are having a blast and we get to hang out with our friends whose kids are just as over scheduled – so it’s all good.  Saturday we had music lessons, soccer games, baseball clinic, a 4-H activity and half of us made it to church with the promise of sleeping in.



Sunday in contrast was quiet. The kids played outside and Tim fixed the storm door.

He mentioned that he did not want a whole blog about him getting things done around the house despite how much fun I would have writing about it. So to compromise I will just say…  there is nothing better than when that man gets out the tools and checks something off the never-ending honey do list! OOOh I could just kiss him!

Happy week everyone –
