The Stonecutter: A Japanese Folk Tale

Adam's 5th grade play was tonight. It was awesome! The play was put together by the children themselves (40 students) with guidance from their music teacher,  Orlando Trujillo. It sounded great and looked amazing. Since only the 5th grade was performing it was done in 15 minutes which was nice since Liam was not a fan of the loud noise and clapping. I wish I could have gotten video, but I was busy trying to keep Liam from crying.

Great job Adam!

Spring Break - Days 2 & 3

These were our lazy days! The kids played and really just did whatever all day. I don't think they left the house either day.
I, on the other hand, got to go out both nights. On Tuesday I went to an MNO with ladies from MOPS at Chili's. Yummy! Wednesday night I went up to Arvada for a Pampered Chef party at my friend Jodi's house. I had a really good pasta dish with zucchini, artichoke, and chicken. Dessert was a brownie pizza. I'm pretty sure I'll be making it myself soon.
I also got a little sewing done. The fabric in the collage is being made into a nightgown for Lily. I've been extremely frustrated with my sewing machine and finally figured out what was wrong. Yeah! No more bent, broken, and stuck needles. I'm happy to have gotten it fixed since I have several projects waiting to be sewn.

Spring Break - Day 1

We had a busy day to start off the two week "break". First up was a trip to the dentist for the three oldest. No cavities!
Then we headed across town to play at a park. I chose to go far from home to a county that was not on spring break so there would be less kids at the park. A friend and her kids met us to play.
The plan for when we got home was to have some quiet time with a movie and video games. Unfortunately the power went out in the whole neighborhood right after I opened the garage. Instead the girls played outside and Adam relaxed inside. After about an hour we had power again. The kids finally got their video game time before dinner.
After Dinner we took a family walk and made a stop at the park so the kids could play some more.
What a great start to Spring Break!
