Made it to Saturday morning

Got through yesterday with a minimum of fuss and even a little knitting: earhart hat 1

As previously discussed, DD has to do a presentation on Amelia Earhart on April 5 with costume so I'm knitting her an aviator hat out of Cascade 220. I had to start it 3 times due to inattention to the directions, but now it is past the halfway point. I want to finish it before Sock Madness starts up again, but that shouldn't be a problem, since they're calling Round 1 on Tuesday night and then we still have a few days before Round 2.

We dyed Easter eggs with friends last night: egg dyeing We had fun although, due to dropping some before dyeing and a spill of the purple dye, one child did not get to do very many. I guess next year I will give them each 5 to make sure everyone gets the same number to dye. I shall try to remember...

Big news for DD, she was the Student of the Month for Citizenship in her class for March. The picture we took was very dark DD SotM. Here are her flowers: SotM flowers 08

Big news for DS, his diorama about Big Horn Sheep garnered him 20 out of 20 possible points!! Thanks to DH for working on this with him! DS diorama

Congratulations to both of my wonderful children!!

Today all we have is cookie boothing and work, tomorrow church and work. Monday starts Spring Break, thank goodness!

Happy Easter, if you celebrate, and Happy Spring if not!

What a coincidence. Our egg dyeing adventure (my daughter and her friend) involved spilling a full cup of purple dye on the floor and all over both their pants.

During the intermission (while I griped and scrubbed the floor and walls and did laundry to hopefully save their pants) I sent them into the living room to get out of my hair. My daughter stepped in dog poop our poodle had left on the rug.

Good times.
