fun weekend

My posts have been few and far between lately, so I've decided to just post alot at once. We had a great weekend and started it on Saturday with a 2-year old birthday party. Not your typical 2-year old party, it was actually fun for the adults too! Our friends Gary and Julie live on a creek called Black Creek and they just built a boat dock where we ate our lunch and then we played in the water on the little sandy beach they have at the creek. The boys had a blast in the water, of course, and enjoyed home-made ice cream and cake. Good job Julie, yummy cake! Sunday was a great day we finally got some rain after 2 months of drought. It not only rained but I did see some hail, it was quite a storm. We were thankful for it though! Yesterday we spent the morning cleaning up around the house and taking care of the animals. While I was cleaning up the kitchen, Sean got into these and here is the outcome! He managed to only get the marker on himself and not on the walls or floor. Thank goodness for washable markers! We had lunch with Jay's sister and family, who were traveling back home to Tallahassee. Then, we were off to Spring Park for a Memorial Day Party with entertainment by The Clay County Community Band, which Jay's Dad is a part of. Sean enjoyed the band sitting on Grammie's lap and here is the picture of him when we were telling him, "put your tongue back in your mouth" and he just stuck it out further. It was a beautiful day with a great breeze by the water! Here is Ian's Garden, we are part of a homeschool group and this summer we are participating in an 8-week co-op, half science and half art. In the science half we are learning about creation, then for the art half we will be learning about artists and their style of art. I'm sure I'll post Ian's art, so excited to see what he creates, he loves to paint and he's very creative. It's soo much fun! The garden was planted on Tuesday and as of Saturday, this is what it looks like. Amazing how fast the seedlings grow. It's really a mix of everything, rye grass, beans, radishes and basil. Finally, on a crafty note, I've been busy making a sling, a diaper bag, both orders, I must admit that because it doesn't happen often, but I know it will take time to get this business going and a better website and I actually have to make some samples. So, I've ordered more fabric very cute stuff and I'm going to whip up a bunch of bags and sell them! Positive attitude, that's what it's going to take I'm sure!

This reminds me of a time when Becca was about the same age as Sean. She stripped herself n*ked and colored her entire body blue. Unfortunetly the marker she used wasn't washable. We didn't have a working camera at the time, so I just have to remember it in my head.

So much good stuff going on at Emerald Lane! That co-op through the homeschooling group sounds so neat! We'll have to look out for something like that here.

Positive attitude and the fact that you can sew like nobody's business will have that machine humming in no time!
