Been Organizing Again

I can't help myself...I love to rearrange and organize.
Get rid of things.
Get rid of things.
Just. Can't. Stand. Clutter.

Enjoying some down time...

With Emma out of school now, days are great. I don't have to interrupt whatever we are doing mid-day to take her to kindergarten. We have been playing and relaxing and doing nothing really. The next few weeks are going to be busy so I figured I'd let the kids just hang out and have down time for now.

My mom comes in the middle of July, that should be fun. We have not seen her for ages.
She is planning on making me a birthday cake and is bringing party hats. Oh boy.
She is also bringing some recipes for me to borrow for my repertoire. Yay!

We ate lettuce from our garden tonight with our dinner. So delicious.
Nothing like freshly grown food.

Last Day of School

I can hardly believe it's the last day of school for Emma.
She is not at all phased by it. She has no idea how l-o-n-g summer will
feel when she is waiting for her new class to start. I do have her enrolled
in a few day camps though so that should help pass the time...

I will certainly miss chatting with the moms everyday.

Steve (my hero) put up my second white board in the kitchen yesterday
while I was getting groceries. I love it. Now I have menus for the next four weeks on there
instead of my tiny little calendar plus I can write out what book the recipe came from etc.
There is also enough room to do a menu for Emma's camps next that a bit too obsessive?
No, I didn't think so.

I guess I didn't know how tall Emma was getting until I saw this picture and noticed that she was gaining height on me. I am sure she'll pass me soon. She is only five now, so with any luck, she'll pass me. We had a good trip out to Drumheller and the kids had so much fun with Grammy and Grandpa hunting for dinosaur bones.

Yup, it's been a while

Okay so I have had my break and now I am here. You may not be, but I am.

What has been happening?

uh....Lots, but I can hardly remember what I ate for dinner last night so I am not even going to dig up what's been going on for the last two months.

Today is Emma's Sports Day at school. The year is almost finished for her and then we are on to day camps for the summer.

I have made some good friends with the moms at the school oh! and, we are able to stay at the same school she is already at even though we have moved and are out of bounds now. So we are good there until Grade 3. Sigh of relief.

I have started cooking for a gal who I am friends with and she pays me! This is a dream!
What more could I ask for? I get to cook and get paid! Hallelujah!!!!!

Oliver's eye has improved enough now that he doesn't have to wear the eye patch anymore. Woo hoo!

My veggie garden is actually growing, much to everyone's surprise.
Can't wait to taste it.

So this post wasn't the most exciting one to come back with, but that's all I've got.
I am not going to be posting every day. Well, I say that but who knows. If I have time I will.
Enjoy the weekend folks.
