Daniel, I am Mommy to 4, have provided childcare to many and have worked as a pediatric RN. I know children!
Despite all of this, I have never met a child like you.
*You didn’t sleep the first four years of your life because you were too busy learning.
*It is what it is: there is no pretense about you.
*You have so much joie-de-vivre and enthusiasm! You love life, savouring every moment.
*You slurp up every scrap of knowledge about things that interest you: in ’06, that topic was “Dinosaurs.”
*You are always “game” for new experiences, like riding in the golf cart with the campground administrator on PEI!
*You NEVER forget anything: facts OR promises!
*You know the date of everyone’s birthday.
*You are a visual learner: for example, you’re amazing at puzzles & drawing.
*You are very attached to me… something that makes me extra happy.
*With a 5-year gap between Bry and you, research says you’re like an eldest child.

**Called the “Fellowship of the Ring” (movie): “The Field Trip of the Ring” when he saw the DVD lying on the table.
** Asked Mommy: “Why does your book say ‘the end?!’”
** On June 14, in the AM, noticed that the calendar said it was “Flag Day” in the US, and told me this. He then asked “WHEN are we going to flag day: After school?” Apparently he thought we should be helping our US friends celebrate the big day! :o)
** Looked in the mirror and said “Mommy, I have big eyebrows!”
Daniel always cracks us up with laughter!!

Great timing, I need to order again! The flyer just came home (= Vesey's Seeds.)
Anyway, we cut the blooms yest and I am keeping them in a tall vase.
Glads are my fave (bulb) flower... this was the 1st time we ever grew them!
This yr they are NOT in the flyer. Boohoo. I wanted some more to fill up my area over near the fence. We will try getting some new fancy "fluffy" tulips and mid-season ones, I think, this year. They're gorgeous!
Enjoy the "Glad" pics!!

Happy Thursday!! Here's a card I made... so much fun... sooo relaxing! Hope you like it.
The flowers on this card have a FUNNY story to them.
On the first day of school Pete and I had to run in and deliver smthg for Noah that I had forgotten to tuck in (I think it was his extra juice cup.) Anyway, as we were walking in, there were ALL these pretty daisy type flowers all lying on and beside the walkway. Weird. They were in the grass too. Of course, there I am picking them up and Pete is laughing at me 'cause I was almost tipping over a bit to do it. (He just shakes his head at a me: I know, I'm nuts. **GRIN**) Anyway, we both picked up a few of these flowers.
They were so pretty, and thrown around as tho' someone had thrown confetti??? They remind me of Barbie for some reason.
Anyway, I gathered a few and Pete helped me (God LOVE that man) and took them home as it had begun to spit rain.
So: That is the story of my pretty card-flowers. They would have been smushed and wet by the rain and people walking on them.
They are "rescue-flowers!!!" Heehee...
THANKS for checking this out, girls!!! I LOVE this LO!!!!
~ Oh, by the way...Martock Mountain is a ski place in NS but it is a tiny mtn compared to those out West.... Peter says it is a "hill!"~
**Upper left corner of LO shows the "wind" coming from a silver button (ie: cloud.)
