written 4/9/12 – Last Friday night Maggie was able to get onto the unicycle. It was Friday so she didn’t have any homework, it wasn’t raining and we were at home. Her balance is getting better but she is still holding onto the fence.
Yesterday was Easter. The kids and I went to the Easter service on Saturday night. I love Easter. It is such a good time to say all is forgiven and we can start over.
written 3/15/12 – There is lightning everywhere in the sky. There is no thunder, the sky just keeps lighting up.
Maggie’s paper is due on Monday, but her project, the website is due tomorrow. the website will be locked out at ten pm tomorrow. No changes can be made after that. Maggie may stay up late to work on it.
We have out two Easter decorations. Little trees that sit on the dining room table, with Easter ornaments hanging from them.The trees must be magnetic because the kids have started hanging magnetic items from the trees.
We decorate a lot for Christmas, but I can’t seem to get many decorations up for the other holidays.
Do you decorate a lot for the holidays?
written 2/29/12 – Maggie took her rolling back pack to school today. She was very happy with it. But…she did say that it was loud and it was hard to roll in the grass. She has now started using the sidewalks.
I went to the store the other day. The stores have out their St. Patrick’s Day and Easter items. They also have their Valentines Day things on sale.
We got more pushpins so that we could update the family tree in the dining room. When we first started it, it looked cool. Now it just looks wrong. Three pictures tacked up on the wall…in a spot where three pictures without frames wouldn’t normally be. We need to add more names and pictures. Then it will start to look like a family tree.
Beth is doing a project for school. They had to pick an invention and do a PowerPoint presentation on it. She chose chewing gum. I think that Beth said that it was invented by a man who was inventing something for rubber tires. He wondered what the rubber would taste like so he put some in his mouth. He realized that if he added flavoring it would be a great product. He called his invention “Black Jack” gum. He was very adventurous with what he would eat.
What would you like invented?
