It seems that our deck is turning out to be a condo for birds. We love watching them flutter about and make their nests. So sweet. Unfortunately, I can't get a good picture because of the angle and the light.
In the Spring, even the weeds flower and are pretty.
It has been our intention to have lunch with the kids at school one day and this week we finally were able to do it. We checked out the lunch menu to see whether the kids would want to bring their lunch, have us bring in lunch, or eat what was on the school menu. They approved the school menu and so we enjoyed chicken tenders, mashed potatoes and broccoli ... twice!! Jack had lunch at 10:30 and Kate at 11:30.
We arrived early, so we strolled through the halls and this caught my eye. I thought to myself how cool that this child said the sweetest thing was Jesus. A closer inspection of this was to see that Jesus was the child's name!
Pretty cool that on Fridays they enjoy pizza from Pizza Hut!
The line up to go out for recess.
Last one out is a rotten egg.
Sitting in the cafeteria brought back memories to me of our school days in the lunch room. Quite different, and yet the same. We always took our lunch and only on occasion did we buy lunch. At one time in sixth grade, I thought it would be fun to work in the cafeteria. What in the world was I thinking? They assigned me to washing dishes, which included ginormous pots and pans in addition to all the other dishes. And they trusted me with washing huge butcher knives!! Wow! In return for all this, my lunch would be free. Well, shortly after, my career ended when I was informed that there was a needy girl in my class whose parents could not afford to buy her lunch and so she would take over my job in return for the free lunch. Trust me. I was okay with that. But as I recalled that on Friday, it was interesting to me that there were no free lunches back then. Anyone needing a lunch was expected to do something to earn the lunch. They worked in the cafeteria. Not judging anybody, just something that occurred to me.
Meanwhile, my brother and sister-in-law were finishing up their relaxing time in Palm Springs. It looks like a nice place to visit and one I'd never thought about.
On Saturday, Kate played softball for her first time and Brady played baseball. Both had hits! So proud of them.
Classmates, teammates, and neighbors!
