Not much

So not much has been happening in our neck of the woods. We have only had a kindergarten recognition (graduation.) And a 6th birthday party with 6 friends. Webby's birthday. The last day of School. Lots of baking for said birthdays. You know, easy peasy! Sweetie Heart finished up Kindergarten last Wednesday. It was a full 4 days before everyone else. Here in our little city, they do a kindergarten screening. They meet with each parent to get input for next years placement and the kindergarten teachers get to work with the kids to see what they can do and where they think will be a good fit. Since school was supposed to be out last Wednesday, the screening remained the same. Webby was going camping Friday night so I needed to get to the store to get some party food. So we walked. Well, Sweetie Heart rode the new peddle-less bike we got and I pulled Sweet Girl in the wagon. I didn't need much so I thought I'd be fine walking. That's what I get for thinking. Here is the wagon. That little empty spot is where Sweet Girl rode AND she had to hold onto a watering can. Did I mention the grocery store is probably almost 2 miles...up hill both ways?

Can't imagine why Sweet Girl wouldn't stay in the wagon for the pictures.

I'm really big on structured parties. Probably just a control thing I've got going on. Webby says that structured parties are good because it teaches kid"s how to plan parties that have activities when they are older. This takes away the what are we going to do" parties that could get kids in trouble, if you get my drift. Not that I ever did anything like that. Anyway, I prepped some magic wands with paint and glitter. I made cupcakes and had candy and sprinkles for the kids to decorate those. And we bought marigolds for the kids to plant in small pots. The party was planned for 2 hours and after everything was said and done that was exactly how long everything took. Yeah, me! I did feed the kids lunch, but that was easy. Peanut butter and jam sandwiches, watermelon and grapes. Simple, and the kids ate it up.

So here are the pictures.
