Day 43

Making flowers for grandmas.  First we finger paint, then let the paper dry and cut out flower shapes.  For stems we'll add chenelle.

Day 42

July 18th, 2011

Today the kids spent time out front with our neighbor kids Shaylee, Shayla and Kyle.  Apparently Kyle's sister was drunk and tossed the family cat out of the car (what the cat was doing in the car in the first place is a mystery) and the family cat hasn't been seen since. The kids went door to door in our neighborhood asking people if they've seen the cat and offering a reward of $35 for it's safe return.  Jenea came in and drew many cat pictures to post up around the neighborhood to help in the effort.

Today was a sad day in our family.  We took apart the trampoline and got rid of it.  It was falling apart.  We are on the lookout for a larger one because the kids were getting too big for this one anyway.

Today the kids were thrilled to go to the Dinosaur museum then out to dinner at the Mayan Restaurant.  We were surprised at how few people were at these places.  Aunt Larisa bought fireworks, the last ones the grocery store had and we lit them off where we were staying.  We really enjoyed the day and were grateful to be together.
