I am truly blessed in life.
Today we had another class at the Science Center. The subject was like CSI, though I forget the exact name. There was a crime scene and each class had different types of clues to determine the culprit in The Case of the Missing Goldfish. Since Miss Daisy still wants me in class with her, here’s […]
Today was a Disneyland kind of day
Lunch time! Star Wars sandwich cutters from Williams-Sonoma.
Today was our annual pre-Thanksgiving get together at my aunt’s house. I do look forward to it every year and think it’s a lovely tradition. The cousin I was closest to growing up has 2 kids so it’s nice to get the next generation together as well. All in all there were around 2 dozen […]
