The product challenge for the month of May was to use a whole blooming bunch of flowers.  Here is the layout that I did:

Andrew and I had a fabulous weekend up at the cabin.  Andrew spent plenty of time fishing, did some wading in the COLD lake, and even tried out tubing behind the jetski (he wanted to try skiing and kneeboarding, but wasn’t quite ready for either – especially with the cold water.

Here are some pics of the weekend:

We’ve been busy here lately!  I have a few updates/pictures to share, so here goes….

Friday Andrew’s class performed Fairy Tale plays/songs for parents right before lunch time.  Al and I were both lucky enough to be able to attend (I worked 2 hours in the morning, took 2 hours off to see Andrew/eat lunch with him, and went back to work 2 hours!)  Andrew was a narrator for the play “Goldilocks and the 3 Bullfrogs”.  He did a very good job…here are some pictures:

Saturday we froze our way through Soccer…the temp was in the 30s and there was a high wind…I couldn’t feel my legs or hands by the time we were done and I was wearing winter gear!!  Andrew had fun even though the team they played was a lot bigger than his team and played rougher.  We rushed from soccer over to the bowling alley since Andrew was invited to a birthday party.  He had a lot of fun bowling and eating pizza.

Sunday afternoon we planted 2 trees that we had bought from the Arbor Day Foundation.  We planted a red maple and a peach tree.  Hopefully they will continue to grow!

Today Andrew had a track and field day at school…they did 4 events…gunny sack race, hurdles, scoop race, and regular race.  I took pictures, but haven’t had time to put them onto my computer yet, so once I get them done, I will share.


Here is the Wisconsin Scrappers May card sketch from The Pink Elephant blog

Here is the card I made:


Andrew had his follow up appointment at the Ear, Nose, Throat doctor today.  He had a throat swab done, and although we have no positive culture yet, the doctor thinks it may yet come back positive because of the way Andrew’s breath smelled.  So now we wait.  I also needed to have a throat swab, and Al is going to the Walk In clinic tomorrow to get one done to make sure neither of us are carriers.  Andrew got a HUGE smile on his face when the doctor asked me to have a throat swab.  He liked to see me gag and do what he hates to do.  I didn’t put up a fight like he did though.  All is good now, we went for ice cream afterwards to celebrate.

Tomorrow Andrew’s class is putting on Fairy Tales plays for parents.  Al and I are both going to go and then I am going to stay and eat lunch with Andrew.  I’m working a weird day tomorrow though…working 2 hours, leaving for an hr and half, then working 2 hours…oh well, I’m glad that my job is such that I can rearrange my schedule so I don’t miss these events in Andrew’s life.


This month’s color challenge on Wisconsin Scrappers was light green.  Here is the layout I made for the challenge (thanks to Kristen and my adorable niece’s for the inspiration/photo):
