I really WAS a 'Mystery Reader' today! The quads remembered but they hadn't told the others in their class! Except Kailey told ONE little girl.
I received a good reception!
It helped that I was involved in the Pumpkin Patch trip back in September and the Christmas party last month. Kailey told the others, "Her name is MEEMAW!!!"
So that's what they called me.
I told them it sounds like a DONKEY and they all laughed!
I read 5 books......
This was Louis Dean last night reviewing what books I should read and in what order.
The Dr. Seuss was the first one!
Amber had three brand new ones from the library so I read those and ended with The Twiddlebug's Dream House. I think that was their favorite and I know it by heart as it was also Amber and Benjamin's favorite. I didn't have to read it - I just told the story. It's a Sesame Street/Golden Press book published back in 1983. Amber was born in 1985 and Benjamin in 1988. This book has been around and is one of MY favorites as well.
We surprised the quads with a trip to our favorite yogurt place after school.
I like seeing the way the kids sit.
Only Logan sat like a 'lady' with her feet down.
Perhaps that's because she was wearing a dress.
It was a fun day!
Amber and I spent the morning and early afternoon together watching a movie....
Independence Day: Resurgence.
We've each seen it once but, as with all good movies, we like to watch it at LEAST two times.
It doesn't even come CLOSE to the original Independence Day but it is still entertaining.
I stopped by Goodwill on my way home this evening and found a few treasures.
I was in ALDI picking up a few groceries when my long time friend, Deborah F. called me.
She had been out thrifting and found a REAL treasure for me.
She was already at my house and I told her I was on my way!
This easel was what she had found!
For just $6!!!
The movies were some of my Goodwill buys and I plan on taking them with us to the ranch.
The easel is a chalk board on one side and dry eraser board on the other with a roll of Manila paper that can be pulled up and over for markers, crayons or watercolors. Win! WIN!!!
Thank you, Deborah!!! You are a real treasure yourself!!
She and I had tea and a nice catch up sort of visit.
For years and years she painted with me on Tuesday nights.
I haven't started art back up this year but I will be soon.
When I took the Santa wall down, I realized I really do want some NEW paintings.
My other finds were these two baskets.
They will go to the camper with us, too.
Louis Dean got the dishwasher all figured out and it's a done deal.
I can hear the drain gurgling away as I write tonight!
I'll close out this journal entry with a quote from the book I read this afternoon.
It's as true for US as it is for children!!!
