The Beach

It is no secret that I love warm weather, but N. Idaho has been seriously disappointing me lately. We had one beautiful (almost warm) day, and now we're back to occasional snow, rain, and COLD. I've been dreaming of a nice warm tropical island vacation, but I'm pretty sure this is as close as I'm going to get:

(that is me on the beach, according to the artist. The sun is above the clouds because the moisture from the ocean is going to go up into the clouds and then come back down as rain. Not sure how I feel about rain on my beach vacation. I hope the umbrella works for sun and rain!)

100 Days

It's hard to believe, but my boys have been in school 100 days. Preston's class has been counting every day, anticipating their 100 Day Party. Yesterday was finally the day.
Preston had to do a 100 Day project, which basically was just to display 100 of something (he decided to do fusible beads, which turns out are a little hard to count...).
To top off the excitement of the day, he got to stay for a full day! This was a huge deal for him. His school has an all day kindergarten option, and most of the kids stay for a full day. Every day when I pick him up, he begs to stay for a full day. I finally gave in and said he could do it for one which he replied "okay, so after I stay all day for the 100 Day Party, I get to stay all day every day right?" ummm no.
When I picked him up at school yesterday, I asked him if staying all day was as good as he thought it would be. His response: "It was so much better than I even thought!"

Project: beads. So glad Bryton & Archer were sleeping while we did this!

100 Day Glasses...he's such a goofball. (and he edited these pictures!)
