Memorial Day

So this weekend we were planning to go see the graves of our ancestors. But poor Lynn has an abscess (bump) that is quite painful and has kept him in bed all weekend. So while Lynn went to the doctors, the kids and I took a two hour walk up Cemetery Hill to the Pleasant Green Cemetery on Monday. It was a perfect day for a walk after Sunday's rains cooled everything down for us. We found Grandma Davis, who is the great-grandma who lived in this house before us, along with her family. Sorry, I didn't take the camera and get pictures, but the valley was so pretty from up there. It was a little disappointing that we didn't get to go anywhere, but it turned out to be a nice relaxing day after all!

Mother's Tea

It was a special day at Allee and Dani's preschool. We had a Mother's Day party! We colored butterflies on the back of a matching game that had pictures of things mothers do for us. The kids serenaded us with a lovely song "I wish every child in the whole wide world had a great mother just like you!" We opened presents, a jewlery box with a pin inside. We read a card from each child, I am 14 years old according to Dani and I am 5 inches tall according to Allee. And of course, we had a treat, a cookie flower in a cup full of oreo dirt and gummy worms with ice cream. It was a lovely time with my two favorite preschoolers!
