Sometimes I follow the colors on the card as closely as possible.
Mother's Day weekend was really fun. If any of you have ever watched The Sing-Off, a reality show competition between a capella singing groups, awhile back a group from Minnesota called Home Free won the competition (and I highly recommend listening to them). Back in December we saw that they were coming to Fresno. At the time, we didn't realize it would be Mother's Day weekend, but it was the perfect thing to do on a Saturday night. The Tower Theater is a landmark in Fresno, completed in 1940, designed in the Streamline Moderne style (and yes, I did have to look that one up). As far as the group, we have probably never heard a bass who can sing sooooo low. Sometimes his voice literally rumbles. And the "percussionist" makes his voice sound like there is a full set of drums, yet it is just him and his microphone. Amazing. We are big fans.
Sunday night we were are Aaron and Christa's for s'mores. While we waited for the coals in the firepit to get just right, we played charades. Believe it or not, I have never played charades! Then we had gourmet s'mores: homemade marshmallows and homemade graham crackers.
The other day, Levi first grade), gave me this little fill-in-the-blanks questionnaire, "All about my Grandma."
My grandma's name is Cindy.
She is __ years old. (Sheesh--you didn't really think I was putting my age in red, did you? You will have to read the pencil in the actual questionnaire. And how did that 7-year-old even remember my actual age??)
Grandma and I like to quilt.
Grandma likes to say "I love to quilt."
My grandma really loves to quilt.
She likes to eat carrots.
She likes to drink water.
My grandma's job is to quilt.
If she had time, she would like to quilt.
Grandma's really good at quilting.
If I could go anywhere in the world with her, we'd go to China.
I love my Grandma because she quilts for me.
I kind of sound like a one-trick pony, right? But, seriously, how well does he know me?! I probably love the answer to the last question the best. And I was curious about how he chose China, but then I remembered that for his birthday, Mark and I gave him a year-long subscription to Little Passports, (world edition, geared to ages 6-10), something I highly recommend--and each month in the mail he gets activities and information about a different country.
Proof that Levi knows what he is talking about. Quilty shoes.
Can't leave out the other two grandchildren:
Her brother's baseball bat
I would like to make this end table.
How has your week been?
