I'm making the title optional today.

 My son finished his 3-D flower project.  He's a glue gun pro now and has TONS more appreciation for his mom's crafting abilities -- there was a lot of "Wow, Mom, how do you just have all this stuff?  Felt, pom-poms, pipe cleaners, beads, syrofoam balls!!"  For once my packrat skills paid off!!!  

The flower:

And of course the bee to display pollination during his presentation of parts of the flower:

I was a chaperone for my kindergarten son's class field trip to the livestock show today.  There's a little girl in his class who has a crush on my son (her mom told me so and my 5 year old says, "She likes me.")  I'm really in denial of such talk, I mean they are way too young for such things!  Well, she picked to be in his group for the field trip, so I told my husband last night, "It's basically like I'm chaperoning their first date!"  And that's how it was.  They were even holding hands at some points!  Somebody help me!

My favorite pics of the animals we saw today:

Butting heads:

And newborn baby pigs:


Between all that and a 4th grade musical tonight I'm wiped out (Is there ever a Friday post when I don't say "I'm tired"?)!  In all the busyness of the past few weeks I almost forgot to register my youngest daughter for her school for next year.  Thankfully the sweet office manager sent out one last email saying "The deadline is tomorrow at noon!"  The form and check are taped to my backdoor! 

I'm so looking forward to some rest the week of Spring Break and the time change coming up so my kids will sleep in later!!!  Losing one hour is a small price to pay for gaining an extra hour of sleep every morning of spring break when the three-fourths of my kids that have internal clocks that wake them by 7am every morning are tricked into actually rising at 8am instead!


Happy Friday Everyone!


  1. I love all the animal pictures but how cute are those piglets? Enjoy the weekend.

  2. Oh wow! His flower (and bee) turned out amazing! And it's nice to know there's a fellow packrat out there... ;)

    LOVE the pictures of the animals - way too cute! Too funny the field trip felt like you were chaperoning your son's first date. Cracked. Me. Up. :)

    You know, I always grumble about losing that hour in the spring - I like your way of thinking that they're 'tricked' into waking up an hour later! :)

    Granny Princess Nagger, 5-dollar Pancakes and Apple Pie Apples – it’s a Friday Fragment Free For All of Fun!

  3. Oh holy cow, the livestock pictures take me back to the Iowa State Fair and my cousins auctioning off their 4H projects. Great memories. I love baby critters, those goats are so cute from behind fences ;-)

    Hey, you have 4 kids, when are you not wiped out?? I often wonder how crazy I was to add a 5th ;-) Super crazy!! I hope they all sleep in way past 9 tomorrow morning for you!

    That is a cute flower!!

  4. always i used to read smaller content which also clear their motive,
    and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading here.

  5. As a former science teacher I'm tickled to death to see your sons anatomically correct flower AND bee! Wish I could hear his presentation!!!

  6. The animals are so cute.
    Your son is quite the crafter!
    I am so ready for spring but I feel a bit left out because we had no snow to speak of.
    I hope you get some rest this weekend.

  7. I don't blame you one bit for being exhausted; what DIDn't you do this week?!

    Thanks for linking up! :)

  8. OMGosh, holy cute animals! Adorable.


I'd love to hear what you think!
