Marker update

Not so washable.

And feeling a lot less coy after a brisk bath scrub.

Sam is certainly creative

The second to last day of school, I’m sitting in the parking lot, waiting to pick up the boys, when I get this message from Sam’s Kindergarten teacher:

“Your son may have had a little too much fun this afternoon! You’ll see soon! Sorry…”

Hoo-boy, can’t wait, I replied.

She was very apologetic and swears she would have stopped him, but he was very fast. I don’t doubt it. Ah well. Here’s hoping those markers are washable! What a way to end the school year.

Double cats

oh my gosh…

You guys…

It’s happening!!!

My hard work has paid off!! In two weeks they have gone from hissing constantly to cuddle neighbors. I predict by next winter they will be snuggle buddies!

Native foods

Jack’s third grade class has been studying native Americans for their last social studies unit. So today we went to Tocabe to try some authentic fry bread and wojapi sauce. Delicious!

End of school year events

The end of the school year means lots of projects being shared and brought home, and lots of events to attend. Thursday was a triple whammy (plus piano lesson!). I went to the community fair and the student-led conferences.

Bounce houses at the fair:

The kids loved showing off their work to me.

They boys earn many points during the year for good behavior and are trying to spend them all. Jack’s favorite prize is to have lunch with the teacher. Sam always chooses to bring a stuffy to school for the day. I didn’t even know there were other choices until I saw this poster in his classroom:

I think these choices are hilarious! A pen for a day – wow!

That same day we went to the scouts year end picnic, where Jack officially advanced to Webelos. They had a hot dog dinner, then skits and s’mores.

Secret life of pets with pets and pizza

Ben is out of town. I arranged for dinner and a movie at home. Freddy is desperate to eat pizza.

Mother’s Day

I forced the boys to join me in my annual Mother’s Day photos. Not bad!

Jack’s Second Piano Recital

We actually have a rich and varied life aside from our cats 😉

Tonight was Jack’s spring recital.  He was very nervous and unhappy with his performance.  But I think he did great!  It’s so difficult to perform in front of people.  I’m proud of him for playing tonight.

We celebrated by going to Dairy Queen with his friend Dylan, who had a sister playing tonight too.


I feel so proud of this

Face to face

Freddy wants to be friends SO BADLY.

They are both doing pretty good. Freddy is cautious and submissive. Nimbus is hissy and wary but not outright attacking.
