Mother's Day---

So this was one of the gifts that the kids brought home from school for Mother's day.  Can you guess what I must have worn the Friday before Mother's day?  I know so cute!! 
So you may not be able to read the text.. but the highlights of their interview about me.. 
My mom looks prettiest.. in a light blue dress (C) when we go to church (H)
While I am at school my mom.. I don't know what she does on monday, on tuesday she shops, on wednesday and thursday she goes to bible study, on friday she goes out and looks for stuff (C) She does fun stuff with the little kids. 
My mom's eyes are green (C) light blue(H) .. perplexed that my children are obviously blind I also asked this question of the younger kids brown (A) and Rachel said Gold hmm flatterer! 
According to C my favorite thing to do is sew and make hairbows, but my dear daughter is quite convinced my favorite thing to do is have a little rest. either of these could be correct.  
Apparently, Miss H is convinced that I am the best coach, while Cubby thinks I rule at sewing. 

The pictures were great, and the interviews quite insightful. I had a great Mother's Day, especially the little rest and steak dinner. we also have the most adorable family of blue birds (made of pottery) nesting on the downstairs mantle in the family room. 

Mother's Day does mean that summertime is right around the corner, so we are beginning to assemble our fair entries.. here are some of the projects the kids have completed already. I love filling our summer's with arts and crafts am excited with all the sewing projects the kids have lined up! 
 Cubby- Deacon Deacon in oil
 Miss H Sundress
 Miss H- Aslan in oil
 Miss H- Red eyed tree frog
 Little Daddy-Alligator (painting on wood)

Miss H-Mixed media (marker and chalk pastel)

I would really like to do some batik fabric painting but I am having trouble finding a book on it from the library, and I thought a pottery wheel would be fun.. 
Also.. the pool is open! I haven't brought my camera down there yet, and it is still that awkward week when the younger kids don't remember that they love swimming.. but.. finally! Summer is just around the corner.
