My classroom has no windows and I virtually spend 9 months indoors. Gardening is my "go-to" in the summer for reviving my spirit and renewing my energy.
|Our irises this year were the most prolific ever!!!|
ALMOST 30 BAGS OF MULCH -- PULLING LOTS OF WEEDS AND POTTING MY FAVORITE BEDDING PLANTS -- TRANSFORMED THE YARD.
The end of school is always a full calendar for our family. Terry and I are finishing up semesters --his OKWU ones run all year every five weeks and the little ones have lots of activities.
|Sydney graduated from Preschool at Redeemer Covenant Preschool - her words she "wants to be a queen when she|
grows up so she can ride in a carriage and wear fancy clothes."
and A visit from Grammy and Grandad
On Saturday, June 2 we had a "Nana's Out of School Party" complete with 'slip n' slide' water shooters and water balloons. We even had cake (a big deal to the 3 Goodletts -- one they had decorated for their parent's anniversary and we kept the leftovers frozen).
|April 22nd Bethany and Mat celebrated 12 years!|
When there's a lull and the "B" word (bored) slips out of somebody's mouth -- Nana or Pawpaw thinks up a chore that they can earn money on. (They carried books downstairs for Pawpaw when he donated his library to a Christian college in Liberia.
Mastering the High Dive in Swimming lessons
Meanwhile in Colorado, two little Bells are growing quickly -- Charlie is walking now and 15 months old.
Charlie masters walking!!!
Clara looks out for Charlie and shares EVERYTHING with him. They are definitely a team as she nurtures him and he watches her for cues -- Charlie even sits outside Clara's door if she has to go to time out.
Nana has another birthday!!!
The sweetest sounds are little ones singing happy birthday to you!
