Early Saturday morning, 15 tons of gravel knocked on our door. The truck was so loud it shook our little house, waking up the kids who ran outside in their pajamas. We got a quote about paving our long, long driveway but the cost would total 20% of our current mortgage balance..so we paid a couple hundred bucks for loose gravel as a temporary fix.
Our local library hosts an annual bookmark design contest. Our kids entered. I just got a phone call that two of their drawings will be displayed during an evening reception this week. Fun, right? I’m going to make them get dressed up to attend.
Mary Had A Little Lamb, Hot Cross Buns and one tune I still can’t place is on repeat inside our home. 3rd and 4th grade music class introduces the recorder and my kids practice A LOT at the same time but different songs. You know when they blow so hard, spit flies out the end? That must mean musical mastery.
I opened the mail offer shown above. What.A.Deal. Hope it doesn’t expire before I get the chance to take them up on it.
It’s spring break in the South! We hiked yesterday, got some sun and made a list of places around the city we want to visit. Just staying local…any suggestions?
