We recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary and so I thought it would be fun to post some photos from our wedding.
This was my bouquet. So amazingly beautiful. And heavy.
The reception hall. All white. The flowers were amazing. I do not have words to describe how stunning the flowers were (thanks, Mom and Pa).

A few weeks ago I organized a little summer book club for my kiddos and their friends. We meet once a week for an hour. We read a story, do some sort of game or activity relating to that story, and then have a snack. The moms are all rotating book/snack duties. So far, so good.

The other day I found Cooper and Owen playing this balloon game. I’m pretty sure Cooper stood on that handy stool (thanks, JoPa) and wiggled until Owen laughed. Then Cooper would throw the balloon at Owen. And it was hilarious.

I think we can all agree that the Exhibition night was the best part of the whole art class experience.
I enjoyed emptying out my house to make room for all the art (9 students x 5 projects = a lot of artwork!). There was art everywhere! On every wall. Every window. And every space in between.

The world needs more letters.

Ta-da! Art class.The kids are working on their Andy Warhol-esque paintings. They could choose 5 colors and they mixed them all by themselves (makes me so proud!)
We took a look at Andy Warhol’s work and talked all about color. How to mix color, tint vs shade, warm vs cool, local vs arbitrary. It was lots of [...]
