Headed Back

It's been a goal of mine for a long time. I started researching my options last fall and in the last 7 days I've worked frantically to make it happen... I'm going back to school to get my M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading emphasis! I'm so excited. I've gone back to Concordia University where I did my undergraduate work. It feels so right. I will take most of my classes on line as I have the 3 little guys, but the campus isn't far from me (25 minutes) so I can be there whenever I'd like. My adviser is one of my old professors. I loved reconnecting with her over the telephone. Here I go... back to school.

Almost 5!

My baby is almost 5! It is always hard for me to believe that my kids are another year older. Her birthday is next week, but we were able to have a party for her and a few friends while the big boys were away at school. It was an art party. The girls painted small, wooden jewelry boxes and added jewel flowers and princess cutouts. They also beaded bracelets with pony beads and alphabet beads. They had a great time... and it was calm. (My 8-yr-olds birthday party this spring was a nightmare.)

I've been gone..

I've been gone for awhile from posting, but not by choice. My barely 1-yr-old computer died on me. Can you believe it?!?! I've been patiently (yeah right) waiting for my new computer. They tried to deliver it yesterday and I was gone. They left me a nice note, telling me to sign the back of it and they would deliver Monday. Monday??? I have to wait all weekend. Hmmm... what's a girl to do. So many pictures and stories to share. See you all soon!

Kid Art

While I was sewing, Baby Girl went through my "extra" material. She had pieces tied around her head, her hand, etc. She came an asked me for a glass or water... I obliged... not knowing what she needed it for. She had set up her paints on her desk and was creating right along with me. So here is paint on a scarf...

A Little Sewing

I pulled out the machine and made myself sew Baby Girl a dress. I decided that if I didn't do it soon, she'd miss wearing it in summer weather. Although around here, we haven't had much summer weather lately. It's been cold and rainy. That is all suppose to change this week.
