Yesterday was Zoey's teacher's birthday so today when I was at the store and saw these I thought she needed a little birthday surprise.
Oh, and I bought one for myself, too.

Today was Art Masterpiece in Zoey's class again. Seems like we just finish one lesson when it's time for the next already!
I always swear that this time I'll remember to take pictures as the kids are actually doing the project but let's face it, when you are in charge of helping 27 kindergarten students it's all I can do to keep the room in one piece. So, once again, I had to settle for a few pictures of some of the completed projects.

Got an unexpected and much appreciated package in the mail today.
It's a simple reminder to believe in magic. If you want know what an elephant has to do with magic you'll have to read The Magician's Elephant.
But here's a little taste:
"Magic is always impossible," said the magician. "It begins with the impossible and ends with the impossible and is impossible in between. That is why it is magic."

I took Harrison to get his kindergarten shots today. I always hate taking them for shots. They are so sad the rest of the day.
But this brought at least a momentary smile to his face.

Since my baby got his shots yesterday I of course wasn't surprised that he had a fever today.

I decided that I NEEDED plants. Outdoor plants, indoor plants, flowers, trees.....I needed plants! So we made a trip to the Nursery (okay, really it was Lowes....I'd love to support a local nursery in the future but I had a 10% off my entire purchase coupon that expired.....don't judge.)
Felt like an atrium on wheels driving home!

Sunday afternoon walk with the family. Just a quick pic to remind me why I love my community. (Because it's easy to forget when the construction vehicles are rumbling down my street at 5:30 in the morning.)
