The end of school is in sight. Lots of "parties" and special things going on at the end of the year.
Thursday Andrew and Bethany decided to be artsy and wanted to paint. They did beautiful paintings! I'll try to take pictures of them and post them tomorrow. Andrew's picture has a beautiful sun in the corner, and I asked him what was in the other corner. He said it was Jesus when he came out of the tomb...just melts my heart! I'm so thankful and excited when I hear my children talking about God and their faith...just AWESOME! (Bethany's picture is the top one, then Andrew's, then Abbigail's...she saw their paintings when she got home from school and wanted to do one as well.)
Friday, Andrew's class had a picnic at the park. It was fun, but VERY windy (what do you expect...it IS Kansas!) That evening, Abbigail had a lock-in with her Girl Scout troop. I was, of course, the worried momma. She's never spent the night away from me, except with my mom a time or two. My baby...with a bunch of other girls...ALL NIGHT! I figured she'd be passed out on the gym floor by 10. NOPE! Her leader said that she was still going at 2:00 am when they made the girls lay down. Then she was up bright and early! CRAZY! SO I figured she would be very cranky today, no, she did pretty well! They finished the lock-in with a pancake and scrambled egg breakfast for the families. All the girls were presented with their awards and patches for the year. Abbigail is so excited, she received 14 patches. Guess I'd better figure out how to attach them to her sash!
After the breakfast, we dropped daddy off at a meeting and I took the kids to the zoo. The otters and the playground were the favorites again. This afternoon was the high school graduation, so we went to a few parties...no cooking today! Now, that's my kind of day!!!! :-) All the kiddos are sleeping, and I think I'm going to go join them! Good night! :-)
Ok...I have a lot of pictures to share of the past few days, but after I got this one on, blogger won't keeps freezing up on me. I'll try to add them tomorrow. Sorry. UPDATE...Blogger let me add 3 more pics, then froze up again...try again later! :-)
