Arrrrgh.

I forgot to talk about ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day’. It was fun. However, I can’t post photos about it so I guess it’s all moot. Let me tell you a different story.

Addy (not her name), is newly four, gravelly-voiced and slightly crazy. I love her. On the playground this morning she came up to me, very sad and discouraged. “Sarah says she won’t be my best friend.”

I gave my standard answer: “That’s ok, Jesus is your best friend.”

She scrunched up her face. “Nyeh…. I’m not playin’ with him….”

    We re-wrote nursery rhymes in pirate language. The kids did a really good job. Some of them were really clever.

MY kinda gallery

IMG_9707

Once again, I forgot to take a picture before this process started. Just imagine a pantry full of carts. We love our cook dearly, and don’t want her to ever quit, so when she said that she sure could use a few more carts, I was excited. I love buying carts and shelves! For months […]

Marxhausen Art Show, part deux

IMG_9675

So, Saturday was scheduled to be a jam-packed morning. We were meeting Sam, Gracen and Professor Dynneson at the CDC at 8, loading tables and art into cars and vans and transporting them to the gallery. Annette was there to help it all look nice. That first part went smooth as glass. There were several […]

Tired and crabby

Today was a day. We worked on setting up the gallery for the next Marxhausen show and it took a lot, lot, lot longer than anyone anticipated. It wasn’t my best day. I’ll write about it tomorrow when I’m not so cranky.

Sleepy

I forgot to post last night. Lloyd had conferences so after I walked home, ate and watched t.v. for a bit, I just wrapped it all up and went to bed at 8:30. It was fabulous. The Ghost of Cuddles Present (Ralph) visited me three times in the night so he could get under the […]

SO many butterflies!

IMG_9587

I can’t show it well with pictures, and the videos are too bouncy, but Seward has been overrun by painted lady butterflies the past week. It’s another adorable infestation. We have a lot on the playground, but the yards behind the center are FILLED with them. We watch them after nap and have tried some […]
