New walkies

Carson and Jesse

 So for Easter this year, the kids got a new set of walkie talkies.  They have always loved these things!
They tested their range by going to opposite ends of our townhouse community.  They did great with the distance.  They sounded as clear as if they were right next to each other.  They freaked Jesse out a little though.  He was looking around trying to find out where the body connected to the voice was!

We like the Mesa Art Center when we remember to go do things there.  Recently they had some yarn bombing going on...

Almost Easter

Yesterday we went to an Easter Egg coloring and hunting party.  What good times!  It was only Leigh, her friend Mary and I from our house due to illness in the little boy.
It was held at the most beautiful church, The Community Church of New Thought.  They had the greatest citrus grove on their property and the softest grass.

A Picture a Day

So I made an agreement with a photography friend of mine that I would take a picture a day and write about it....
I am already a day behind, I have 2 photos to post today.
The first is Leigh practicing her flute at the dining room table yesterday.
She doesn't normally practice there but she was talking to me and working on a craft project at the table
So she stayed and got her flute and music out.

Today I was upset with Leigh when I dropped her off at Eagleridge this morning.  Although I apologized to her and hugged her when I left her, I felt bad all day.  When I picked her up after band, we both were apologetic; it seems it was on her mind all day also.  
We then headed to the library.  We got books on the Titanic, Pirates and some travel books for a variety of east coast destinations.  Leigh has been reading an interesting series about a group of friends and was able to get the latest book from hold.  She returned to the library and read until 9:45 tonight..finished the book.
