paper and glue and zoo
We have actually been working on a ton of projects lately, so of course the house is an insane mess. oh well, must move on. Isabelle is absoutley loving playing basketball, she has a game late this afternoon. Since Noah is out of town, I will be trying to wrestle Olivia in the stands by myself. Snack size chocolate bars are pure evil. Currently I am Reading a book called: God Makes Lemonade, it's a bunch of short stories. Noah and I celebrated our 14th year anniversary this past week. I thought we were like on our 12 but I did the math and wow - it's fourteen. We decided to just make it a quiet dinner at home since it was a school night with lots of homework and we coming off of the Halloween high. Exciting news I have is that I was asked to help with Art in Ben's Kindergarten class...so I get to plan the projects and then teach them the art session once a week. I am so excited. What a wonderful opportunity. I love being around this age group and seeing what they create , I just find so much delight in them. I am almost finished with the firefighter themed mural that I started awhile back. I get there about once a week for a couple hours. I keep thinking I will finish today while I am there, but then Olivia throws a wrench (or actually toys at me) in the plan. I thank my friend Teresa for her patience with me. I will show pics when its completed. We have been trying some new recipes lately. Most are turning out good. The garden is offically done. I think I might make us some hot chocolate, there is a definte chill in the air. Isabelle has been having some major meltdowns lately and it really makes me wonder how I will survive the teenage years (she is 8!). Olivia's word list grows: Uh-oh, MOM! No! , Ut Up (shut up to the dog)!, down, night, hi, etc. I barely ever sit down to watcha movie, so yesterday I watched Zookeeper with the kids. It was cute (not the greatest flick in the world). Speaking of zookeepers, thats how I feel latley, that I am running a zoo. Wild animals everywhere. Which reminds me, I'm tired. The End.
