I volunteer in the girl’s classroom on Thursdays, and like any Thursday, I was there today. I love that the kids seem to enjoy my being there. They get extra attention, so it’s a good thing. I always get a ton of hugs, they draw me pictures, I read stories, and I just hang out and listen to anything they feel is important enough to share.
Today, Hailey came over to me, with her hands on her hips, looking very serious. She stood, looking at me for a second, one eye narrowed, before she finally spoke. Then in a slightly accusatory tone she asked “Why does Lily-Ann always look so pretty?” Pretty coming out with a little extra venom. I thought for a brief moment (stifling my laughter) and replied “Well, I guess that’s just how she feels inside.” Seemingly satisfied with my answer, she sauntered off.
Today started off nice and lazy, just the way I like my Sundays… but then it got busy. Mostly fun busy, with a visit from my good friend Trae and her son Jaden. They joined us for supper, which was a really nice treat. Unfortunately we had some bad busy too though, in the form of a wee girlie and her daddy both with fevers and sick tummies. A set of sheets, pillow cases, and comforters later… at least the sickies have a clean bed to lie in. Always a joy to have those types of messes… but we got through it. And I have to say, have Trae here to help watch everyone else while I took care of the mess was a big help, and made me feel a lot better about everything.
Before things got busy I had been thinking about scrapbooking kits. I have a few in mind. Gotta build up a bit of a supply, and then I’ll hopefully be able to find a shop that is interested in selling them. Here’s one of the pictures I took today… while thinking scrapbooks. 🙂 Any guesses as to the theme of the kit it will belong in?
