Drive In

Iz and I went to the drive in last night!!! So fun to have a girl's night with my FAVORITE girl :)

We saw this...

...and stayed for the first 15 minutes of this :)

Me and my girl waiting for the movie to begin!

Brave was so good and Madagascar 3 made us laugh right away but we couldn't stay for the whole thing - it was midnight when we got home and that is WAY WAY past my bedtime!!!

We saw previews for a couple up and coming movies that we definite want to see - we're hoping they come to the drive in to and that Hubby can come with us next time!!!

That's another check off the summer fun list :)

Summer Fun List 2012

It took us a couple weeks to figure out EXACTLY what we wanted on our list but it's done!

Here it is
Lucky Auntie D, WW & Bumpy made the list!!!!

We've also added another element to the fun list. 
I'm a firm believer that schoolwork shouldn't stop in the summer time so I've set Iz up with a schoolwork goal to meet. 
We counted out a bunch of pompoms and found a jar to store them in. 
She adds one pompom to the jar for every 15 minutes of school work she does. 
When she fills the jar that's when we'll go to Build-a-Bear.
She loves the idea and has already started on her workbooks and reading!

Strawberry Picking!

We haven't made an "official" summer fun list but when we do we'll be able to check one thing off right away!
We met up with WW and Valentine Girl today to pick some berries . . . YUM!

Hard at work?
No Just trying to avoid a picture - she should know better by now!

That's better :)

Taste test!

The haul :)

I made strawberry shortcake but Iz ate hers before I could snap a pic - maybe I'll be able to grab one when Hubby gets home and he and I have some of our own!

I have a whole heaping mess more all washed, hulled and ready to go. 
I'm off to allrecipes to find something yummy to make!!!

The weather was ucky but we made the most of it on Wednesday with inside games!

A little blurry but what can I say? My girl was on the move!

Musical hula hoops :)

A little quiet time after lunch.

My favorite girl and the BEST kindergarten teacher EVER!!!

Kindergarten Field Trip

I joined Iz and her class and the other Kindergarten class on their field trip last week to the children's museum...FUN!

Hauling lobstah traps . . . just like Bumpy :)

The good weather help long enough after for a picnic at the playground!

And we even got a visit from the local fire department :)

Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.

On a large scale, there are a ton of things I would change. 
There would be no hate. No prejudice. No war.

On a small, local, close to my heart scale...I would change this:

Ugh! Ours is not what I wish it was. There are approximately 350 kids in Iz's school and we're lucky to have 6 or 7 people at our monthly meetings. Also, we're stuck in such a rut - nothing new, mainly because no one is willing to get involved. The 6 or 7 people that are at every meeting do EVERYTHING. So frustrating.

I missed the election for next years officers because of my CNA class. This past years president left a lot to be desired. The person who will be president next year would not have been my first choice either. We'll see what next year brings.

I know it's a little thing but Iz is only a grade schooler ONCE and I want it to be the best experience it can be...

Hubby brought this home from band practice Sunday night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of his band mates acquired it (FREE) from job she did. 
She already had one, knew we wanted one and GAVE it to us!!!! 
Within 10 minutes of Hubby walking through the door with it I was online ordering a sampler pack of K-cups. They should arrive in the next day or two. In the meantime I scooted out first thing yesterday morning to get some to tide me over :)

BIG HUGE GIGANTIC thanks to "A" for hooking us up!
I'm working on something yummy to make for next week's practice just for YOU!

Rainy Weekend

It started raining on Friday night and rained ALL.WEEKEND.LONG!

We tried to make the most out of it by going to the library Saturday morning and then out to lunch. Iz got the dvd Hugo at the library so we watched it when we got home. Actually Hubby and Iz watched it and I took a nap :) But, when Sunday rolled around Iz had had enough and the whining began.

So, what better way to spend a rainy day then with a quick trip to the store, birthday money in hand to get a new LEG0 Friends set...

...or two :)

We got back about 3:30, Hubby headed off to band practice and I got a glorious TWO uninterrupted hours to study for my upcoming CNA final and state exam!!! 
Thank you LEG0 for finally offering sets that my girly LOVES!

Sassy likes new LEG0 sets too! least, she likes a new box to lay on :)

On a related note - there's been a lot of controversy about these new "girl" LEG0s since they were introduced a few months ago but I adore them! Some people think they're sexist or whatever. Iz received some for her birthday and Easter and has bought a few sets since with money she's saved up. She probably has 7 sets total now. She's never shown an interest in LEG0s before but, then again, why would she? All that was available was Toy Story, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Carribean, Cars, etc - nothing that interested her. Since the LEG0 friends has come out she loves building things and plays with them for HOURS!

Iz has been thinking about wanting to do this for a while and today we took the plunge.




We'll be donating the hair to make wigs for kids with cancer. LOVE that my girl was brave enough to do this and that *I* was brave enough to let her. I didn't even cry!!!!
