We attempted an updated family picture. The cute little thing on the far right used many creative expressions. The above picture is my favorite in the bunch.
Friday night, a neighbor gave us tickets to Disney on Ice. We also scored FREE curb parking across from the arena.
Sunday Tom Sawyer had a friend help him wash our neighbor's van. The neighbor offered (in a text) $20 for him to wash and detail the inside. I told her that for this 8 year old, who isn't keen on details, $5 would be sufficient. I asked him if he would like to wash her van.
Another neighbor strolls past while he is washing the van and asks, "How much is the going rate for car washes these days?"
Promptly he pipes up, "Nine to fifteen dollars." The boy likes to dicker.
Speaking of white, she wore a white dress to the closing ceremony of Comm. Central (Brother's homeschool co-op) today, Monday. Please notice the pink sparkly Hello Kitty shoes, they are now MIA - I think left on the playground. My kids hate shoes. Oh well, at least we left the house with shoes on the feet.
We came home and played in the yard. Brother is loving playing in the creek behind our house these days.Here's a post from when they went in 2009).
Last but not least - if you're looking for a new recipe, here is one of our new favorites. Last fall, I roasted several chickens and froze the meat in two cup portions. You could use a rotisserie chicken from the deli, too.
