Hip Hip Hooray!! It's another Monday's Fun Day!!

Hello my friends! I'm sorry I haven't posted in a week. Things got a little crazy earlier in the week and then life got the best of me... I managed to get sick. :(

It's actually Tuesday now... I had started this post last night and had to go to bed in the middle of it. The hard part of this cold is being dizzy. Anyways, I'm posting this a day later than I wanted to and for that I apologize!! BUT no more excuses! I am back!!

I had a few proud mommy moments in the past week that I would love to share, if I may.

My future scientist!

Ken came up with this idea for his science fair. He wanted to learn more about batteries, so he partnered up with his friend, Joshua, and together, they decided they wanted to see if lemon juice could make enough electricity like a battery. Here's what the two Kinders came up with...




My future baseball player!


Moreland Little League is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and we are so proud to have Ken participating in the T-Ball division. He is coached by Kirk Young, who is not only a Kindergarten dad in his classroom but also our neighbor across the street! Last week was the official kick off with the Opening Ceremonies and Ken's first game. Here are a few pictures from Saturday!


Ken is a "lefty" but signed his name inside his left hand, much to his father's chagrin. I didn't get it until I realized the children were signing in the hand that they put their glove on. LOL!!


Several of the team members are missing from this photo but I managed to wrangle most of them together before their practice for a quick picture. Aren't they the cutest?

Yes... that is Ken with his glove on his head.


Ken in action! He wants to know where the ball went!


A little pose!


Mrs. MacDonald (Ken's Kindergarten teacher) celebrated her birthday this past Saturday. We surprised her on Friday with a signed card from her Kinders and each child had a pink rose in his/her hand when she opened the door that morning. Here's the card that I made for her:

Speaking of crafty plans, I'm making an Easter Egg wreath. I had seen them at JoAnns, but I didn't want to spend the $$$. I wanted the pastel eggs, so I painted some plastic eggs, and made the speckles on them, and attaching them onto moss-covered grapevine wreath. I used my heat gun to dry the paint on the eggs quickly. ***Don't try this with the eggs sitting on a styrofoam plate - the heat gun put a hole in that plate in about 3 sec flat!*** LOLStumbled onto your blog by accident, just now - you have some great ideas! TFS and thanks for the RAK/blog candy!

CONGRATULATIONS, Amy!!! Email me your snail mail and I will get this out to you on Thursday.
