My BFF and I very carefully co-ordinated our youngest children's preschool and kindergarten schedules for this school year. It's too bad we don't take advantage of it more often. At least we have once so far this school year.
we attended last year as novices, we could probably call ourselves professional auction attendees about now. I mean, we bought enough stuff. Things like this...
A pallet of tools for a screaming deal. It also included about 17 brooms (no exaggeration), and more shovel HANDLES Mike will probably ever need or use. But a deal is a deal, right? Besides, the shovels alone "paid" for the rest of the stuff we got too.
Approximately 600 gift bows. We gifted them to my mother-in-law, who seemed genuinely happy with her acquisition. (She also received one of 17 aforementioned brooms.)
Turns out we got a pretty dang good deal considering the price we paid, what they looked like when they were cleaned up,and the final verdict from our auto-mechanic. I'm not so sure if we'll ever do it again though, is it really possible to be that lucky, twice?
Mormon Pioneers, that are the basis of Utah history. Reminded me of the first couple of weeks after moving to America, I had to give an oral report on the Mormon Pioneers in a junior high class. I couldn't comprehend the assignment, until I realized it was history.
This photo is from almost 6 weeks ago, but loved this morning! Two California cousins en route to BYU Idaho spent a night with us. Megan skipped the morning of school and these three entertained themselves (and me) singing (Megan was accompanying them on the piano) songs from Broadway musicals. I could have listened to them for hours.
(I promise, he usually uses a booster seat...)
My kids were thrilled that their school finally had "crazy hair day."
This is my life.
