The big boys were arguing the whole time we were there (they both wanted to be in pictures alone while at the same time didn’t want to allow their brother to be in any pictures alone, soo…. yeaaa….).

Despite the fighting, the flowers were lovely.  Good enough to eat, right Calvin?

Lockdown Drills

Kent just came and asked me if we should come up with a lockdown procedure for when we are home at our house. They had a practice drill at school today and ever the sensitive boy, he had a lot of questions and concerns about it. When I was in elementary school we had earthquake drills and fire drills, never lockdown drills. As a parent it is terrifying to think about and I’m so sad that it worries Kent. Look at him; at 5 1/2 years old he’s too innocent to be afraid of these things. ☹️

Still Drawing

I am at a point in my life where most of my drawings are donations! I donate a personalized drawing to the preschool silent auction and the elementary school silent auctions and now I’m submitting one to be raffled off at the upcoming elementary school bake sale.  Haha, it would be nice to someday make money for myself off of the drawings (each one is a lot of work!) but I am happy to be able to support the boys’ schools 🙂
