The fourth graders fitness goal was to run one mile.  So today they did it!  It was loads of fun for everyone!

I was so excited to get this in the mail…  and so bummed that I haven’t had time to play yet…  I’ll keep you posted when I do…  Boys have been asking everyday…

Sounds like an awesome idea, huh?  But it leaves an ugly, purple stain everywhere a bubble lands…  Not so good, cleaning it up afterward…

Bought myself a little goodie:  this cute little square bag for small knitting projects.  Isn’t it adorable?  If you’d like one too, I bought mine at http://www.etsy.com/shop/daintyhippo?ref=pr_shop_more

What a difference!  We hired some wonderful guys to help us spruce up around here and one of the things they did was paint this little garden shed out back.  I LOVE THE BARN RED!  It reminds me of the covered bridges in Iowa!

Per Scotty’s request, we made Oreo Truffles again…  to take to his class for a birthday celebration at school.  They were very popular and I want to make them again, just for fun when school starts back up in the fall…

This family’s last Fun Day…  They end in the third grade.  And this year we had to have Fun Day indoors because the weather wouldn’t cooperate.  I was glad because IT WAS COLD!

I’ve been wanting to go to The Macaroni Grill for weeks.  Sadly,  I remembered it being a lot better than it is.  The rosemary bread was the best thing I had and it was free…

Scott and I got to hang out and just be together.  We decided to go to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, Colorado and it was as beautiful there as ever!

Party Number 2 at Chuck E. Cheese with all the “Colorado Cousins”.  He was a little embarrassed with the spotlight completely on him (just like his Mommy), but overall, he had a great time!

I never thought in a million years, that we’d actually have strawberries, but we must have 300 tiny, little green berries out there.  Of course, if we don’t get a fence around them pretty soon, Boo’s going to eat all of them.  I’m already dreaming of freezer jam…

Look what I did today!  First step to homegrown tomatoes!  We’ve got the Praying Mantis egg case maturing, and I’m feeding the birds and I’ve planted Cilantro all in an effort to keep the grasshoppers away from the garden this year!  Wish me luck!

75% done!  I think my helper is getting really tired of painting!  I know I am.
