I had all the kiddos today. Lu loves it when we do. This morning we went to Nikko's house where she so nicely "helped" me make a shrug for J. By helped I mean she made the pattern, and sewed it while I chatted, changed little M's diaper, got a drink for someone, changed Baylee, killed a bug in the sandbox and made sure no one ran out of the yard. Finally when she had enough of my "help" she sent us home and finished on her own. Nikko, you are awesome!!!

The weather is delightfully warm so the kids spent several hours playing outside.

We had a lesson about prairie dog towns, then made our own prairie dog mobiles, which turned out cute. The kids all thought the predators were mean for eating the poor little doggies.

This afternoon Brother went to play with C while I drove all the girls to activity days.

It wasn't a bad day, despite a headache/stomach ache combo I've had all day.

Also Beloved got home from MD, which is nice. No big lonely bed and sole control of the remote...I'll take his company any time over that.

What can I say? Sometimes I work better on my own. Guess I'm not a collaborative sewist. LOL.

P was so sad when you all left. "When can I have more friends over?" he kept asking.

That nikko must be a great friend.

I'll give up the remote any day rather than sleep alone.

Hope you're feeling better.

Let us see the shrug!

I cannot believe some people still have televisions. I banned it 9 years ago and never missed it for a second. I truly hate the sounds coming out of that machine, especially commercials.
This way the channel changer was never a problem in our household.
