Our Brad spent the night on Sunday because he had to go to the airport very early. April and the four cherubs were at home and we missed them, but the siblings all wanted to come over to see their big brother. Granny and Grampy = delighted! We love it when the four kids are with us!
The weather was perfect for Wendy house play! Millie and Samantha Rose are "just right" playmates.
Birdie gave a sweet smile! Aw!
Here's Sam at the back window of the Wendy house.

Our four! Do you see darling Christie, too? Good Bry? Scott and April are missing. Our kids and their loves are at such great ages. I think I've always thought that, no matter what age. I am so thankful for my chicks!
Here's a birthday cake for my friend, Gretchen Joanna. She has a birthday coming up. Don't you adore Eloise Wilkin? When I was a child, I remember imprinting some of her illustrations. I stared at them so long that they permanently stay in my head. The babies. The rooms in cozy houses. The clothes. The paint colors (the cabinets below).
I know bunnies chew expensive power cords and carpet edges, but I'd still like to have one. They have such silky ears, such darling faces. I gave my "chocolate bunny in reserve" to Christie. She LOVES chocolate.
We are taking the standardized tests at school. The kids were squirrel-like yesterday and I had to speak sternly to them, emphasizing the seriousness of the test-taking environment. They understand, so today should be easier.
Bill says that a lot of adults don't really know how to describe a paragraph, let alone write one. Some of my students still have mental blocks when it comes to writing sentences, paragraphs, and essays. They DO ask good questions, though. There is hope.
How are your paragraph writing skills?
Time to get ready and zip off to school.
I hope your day is bright. I hope you find a good amount of sweetness in this 24 hours. (BIG hug and a few reassuring pats on the back!)
