Some pictures from this week--ballet and other things
Below, is Toothsome #4 in her skunk costume, minus the hat. (And unintentionally, the mom who redid my daughter's hair.)
Toothsome #2 her in beautiful costume
And her very fancy hair
And because of this ridiculous heat we are having in Utah and my refusal to run the air conditioning until June, my Rhodes rolls turned into a square piece of bread. They were still awesome with honey butter.
Today, I get to read aloud to my daughter's 4th grade class. I am reading a chapter from this wonderful book. If you have a reluctant 4th grade reader, I highly recommend this series. His, "Papa Married a Mormon" is also excellent.
And, this morning, I got a taste of what next year holds for me. Toothsome #1 starts junior high and they start later than the elementary kids. He was home with me today in the morning to go an orthodontics appointment (his braces come off permanently next month!) and he and Toothsome #4 played like crazy. This was, "I can't see you" game. The laughter made my morning.
Finally, this Spring I pass this row of beautiful purple flowers when I drive my kids to school. It adds such beauty to my drive. (I wish I knew what they were, so if anyone knows, leave a comment).
