Hello Kitty Artist

Update:  Yes, she's still wearing as much Hello Kitty as possible...
AND...she's a fabulous artist.  This is a GREAT butterfly....with what I was calling a waterfall...
..."It's a jelly samwich...cut in five equal pieces!"  I stand corrected.

My Home-boy!

Mr. Lubby was a bit disappointed that I didn't have much fun planned for the 2nd day of the school year.  After we put Emmer-bean on the bus I told him I needed to sort the laundry...and he was bummed that today contained no trips to the zoo, library or museum.  SO....
....I told him to go pick 4 trucks.  (Since 4 is his current favorite number.)  THEN...I broke out the dried beans and Scrabble tiles.
He played happily until it was time to go pick up his sister from school.
This is a new kind of playing for my home-boy...he's had a constant companion up until now...and it's neat to hear him play alone...chattering away to himself.
AND...while I did the laundry...MomE worked on some fabric/quilt sandwiching....I love me some lavender spray Starch!  How could I not know about it?...It's SO wonderful!

All ready and excited!

School starts tomorrow.  We are all ready.  Our clothes are in the compartments...
...the backpack is fully loaded.  MomE is doing a lot of praying. 
If you love my Emmer-bean too...I trust you are praying for her BIG day too!  Thanks!!  Lubby could use some prayers too...It's hard to be left behind!  But as he says in his own words, "I need to stay home...my mother would miss me!"  True true!

A good time was had by ALL!

DadE out did himself!  They went to the ZOO...the polar bear was actually awake!
They went to the Children's Museum...and my sweet Loverbrains encouraged a group of parents to collaborate and help build this arch for the kids...Yeah...that's MY man!  Emmer-bean seems to be questioning it's stability...as she stands nervously underneath!  HAHAHA!!
AND...*drum roll please*...they camped out in the backyard.  They had smores EVERY NIGHT! 
I will try *deep breath* to not be upset that the center of my yard was chosen for the burn pit.  *sigh*...oh well. 
They hugged me tightly with their little bug bitten bodies!  I had SO much fun (which I plan to share soon in great length over where I'm Blogging Along)...but for right now, it's good to be home!

Emma's Teacher...

Emma enjoyed meeting Miss Rausch last night at her open house.  She saw her classroom...found her cubby, mailbox and crayon container.  Played playdoh with some new classmates, ate two chocolate chip cookies and had her picture taken!

Tuesday is the BIG day!!  Pray for Miss Rausch...she's very young (might be her first teaching job)...and she's teaching AM in one building and PM in another building.  That stresses ME out for her!  Emma's AM class is mostly girls...maybe 3 boys! 

We are SO excited.  The Hello Kitty backpack, outfit and accessories are ready to GO!!

The Dual Party...OR...Emma turns 6!

We had a dual party...half Star Wars and half Hello Kitty...but alas, MomE isn't the picture taker she used to be...and forgot to take a picture of the decorated table and cake. 

AND...I can't figure out how to rotate this video...anyone who knows how to do that...please share!
video
Playground bouncy balls...anyone for a game of dodgeball??

Birthday girls "cheese" face!

Since she wants to be a "baker lady" when she grows up...SO, we got her an easy bake oven.  Couldn't find a single 100 watt plain ordinary bulb in the house.  Poor pre planning.  Oops!

This gift sparked her imagination...she pretends and pretends!!

DadE and Caleb have enjoyed playing with the Zoomer toy...and naming their contraptions.
A funtime had by all.

It's that time again...

...time to make funny faces for LUNCH!
There's just some odd creative-mess that flows through MomE as she prepares lunch...
Bonus= Everyone is excited to eat ALL of their fruits and veggies.  They usually thinks peaches are weird...I'm guessing because of their hairy skins.  Today, it was the first thing he picked up!  JUICY!

Thankful for AC!!

It has been SO hot and humid that breathing becomes difficult...ugh!  We are thankful for our air conditioned home!  SO, we came in and broke out the B I G paper and did some coloring!
Emma is into coloring the WHOLE sky blue!  Our blue markers, crayons and pencils are showing the wear and tear!  Hehehe!  Her artistic abilities are blossoming!  She draws GREAT rockets, flowers and snails! 
Lubby is into CAMPING...He's currently planning a backyard campout with DadE...and so he draws LOTS of campfires, tents, etc.  Too cute!  He's finally getting into drawing...He wasn't much interested up until now!
