This is what happens when one of these two get a hold of your phone. Not only a post, but a title too! Crazy little men. :)

A week and a half ago, this boy turned 4. How is that possible? My sweet, funny, adorable Matthan, Mommy loves you very much.

 My porch fan has been without blades for almost a year now. I took them off to replace them with some others that were much better looking.  The old ones were disposed of  before I realized the screw holes for the new blades didn't fit--like 2 mms too close together. So at least once a month, I'd walk out on my porch, want to turn the fan, and get sad. Buying a new fan wasn't really an option, and I didn't want to spend too much money on blades.
This week, I thought I'd take the kids to the habitat home store since I finally figured out where it is, and it's only a mile or two from Matthan's preschool.  What should be sitting there, sort of out of place? Some fan blades, for $5!  I measured them, went home and measured the fan, saw it was a match, and went back to get them.  It was a bit of a hassle loading and unloading the kids, but, they were the right size! I had to get them before anyone else did! But goodness, they were ugly. They looked like this first picture--bad enough!--but imagine this in white and shiny gold. No.

So I did what I've been wanting to try for forever, so I took off the attachments, painted them black, and reattached them to the undecorated side. Much better, don't you think? I love it--makes me want to get crafty with the rest of my porch. :)  Now I just need to find a fitting globe...

Looks like sister isn't the only one enjoying using the K-12 curriculum. If ever we leave Aubie's door open, this is where I find him--standing in Aub's chair, playing with the math blocks. :)

first day of school

The only picture I could get was of him running away. So I tried again and I got a silly shot. Oh well. At least this post will help me remember why I took these pictures--Matthan's first day of K-3. :)

solomon and the cat

This is the face of sheer delight. :) He LOVES this cat.  If only Leo would reciprocate.

My new phone is connected to blogger. I can talk to my phone and it types what I say.  I can add pictures from my phone. The things that were keeping me from blogging are now no longer an issue.  I think I can do this again now.  We'll see...

I'm trying to learn to love my house again.  Here are two pictures to help me toward that goal. I mean, I'm pretty lucky to have glass knobs throughout. So I guess it's safe to say I love my door knobs. And that's a start.

juice box

I was going to post Cherry Blossom Festival pics, but since it was 2 weeks ago, I thought I'd post something a bit more current first.

Solomon's first juice box. :) It was actually Matthan's so I am so happy that it turned out sto be such a pleasant experience. Normally, this sharing probably wouldn't have happened. But I think Matthan thought Solomon's enjoyment of it was as funny as I did so he kept letting him have more. They are such cute, sweet brothers.

what? a post?

So, you can usually tell if I'm caught up on housework by whether I'm posting or not. For some folks, I'm sure blogging is as much an obligation as folding clothes. For me, folding the clothes comes first. A+B=C, therefore it's good logic to assume that if I'm not blogging, I'm swimming in laundry. I actually am right now, but since it's almost cherry blossom time again, I thought I'd give a little post or two before then so I won't have only 2 posts a year. :)

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss's birthday, so we celebrated by reading Dr. Seuss stories in school and eating green eggs for supper. Since I just COULDN'T dye ham green, we had green pancakes instead. :)
OH, and what's that brick wall doing in my kitchen? You'll see. Eventually. ;)
