Reyde's Last Day of School

I choked up a bit when I hugged Mrs. Hardy and said thank you for all that she has done for Reyde. I might be crying the day he goes to Marvista.

Had fun, went to the Cove for a great end of year picnic. Then we came home and he made "pillows" for dinner. So excited to roll out the frozen dough and put it in muffin tins. Throw some cheese and ham, and more dough on top. Nut don't fall far from the tree here. Plenty of bread, oohie gooey dough, melted cheese. Yummy. He set the table too. And made sure Dad was coming to the table. What a joy.

The next patient

Turbo just the week before....

It's a toss up as to who was the better patient. Although I had much more control over the dog. And while I didn't have to wrap Nancy's pills up into pieces of ham... well you know. You pick.

Something was wrong with Turbo last Monday. For the amount of money we just spent, he should feel like he went to Hawaii. (Cuz that's the amount of money we spent!) Ended up having a tumor and it was cancerous and so we don't know how much longer he'll be hanging with us. He's so stoic, it's gonna be years.

Glad he is back to his old antics.

Drawing Dinosaurs

This is for you Auntie Joan and Amy!!!! See I have finally found my artistic niche. Remember when Auntie Joan invited us all over to use up her arts and crafts supplies in her Puyallup garage? We all picked out baskets; chose ribbons and artificial flowers, to create this most beautiful holiday basket???

I remember mine looking like a 2nd grader's art project, failing miserably with wisps on glue overlapping the pretty things that were supposed to be affixed.

But alas, with all the dinosaur books and coloring books, I perhaps might have an inkling of artist in me.
I drew this dino baby on the back of the paper placemat at the VFW hall in Westport, waiting for breakfast. I'm so darn proud of it, I had it laminated at work. Reyde can treasure it for a lifetime.

And here is Reyde's baby dino, in chalk.
