June 10--Happy Birthday Party, Earnest--We celebrated Earnest's birthday with a party at Build-a-Bear and then cake in the food court. He asked for a cake with 'dancing bears' which is similar to what was on the invitation. Despite the small disaster on the right of the cake, he was pleased with my creation of chocolate cake with a rainbow of gummy bears on both the top and the inside.
June 16--Brothers with Bunnies-- The library had the kickoff to the summer reading program this morning. Although baby animals don't figure much into the theme of "Dream Big--Read!", baby animals were present for the kids to love. Earnest was especially enchanted with the bunnies and wanted to take one home.

Really like the sentiment here. This was Mother's Day, so all the better.

June 5--Tonight was the last Brownie meeting of the year, and the girls went to a nursing home to give a concert. Accompanied by a guitar, they sang a few songs ("Let Me Call You Sweetheart", "This Land is Your Land", "God Bless America", "You are my Sunshine", "Make a Rainbow" and "The Yogi Bear Song"), and each girl played a solo on her recorder. Trust played "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star".
June 9--We Heart Daddy--This is the photo that will be made into a canvas for Chretien's Father's Day present from the kids. I found the idea on Pinterest (of course) and with the help of the Silhouette cutter, the weather (thankfully, a sunny morning, which is what was needed for this orientation) and, of course, the kids cooperation, we were able to pull it off nicely this morning. I got the idea from here. (Scroll down to the end.)

May 27--Walking Tall--Trust tried stilts in gym class a few weeks ago and wanted to make her own. She had a design, but Chretien found a better one online and made her a set of her own today. It will definitely take a lot of practice, but she was excited to try them out.
he loved it just as much last summer on our vacation.
The scientist was back at the library this afternoon to spout off about science once again. The topic was "fluids" and here we have Earnest examining the fountain as it springs forth.
