Who's got two thumbs...

...and wants you to order from her school fundraiser?

This girl!  This year Krause has signed up to sell Cherrydale Farms products--there are some really cute gift wraps in their catalog and I can tell you from personal experience that the cookies are YUMMY.  :)

Please take a look, and order something if you'd like!

You can click here and go shopping on the Cherrydale website:

Thanks so much for supporting Kayci and Krause.  :)

Fair Fun-Take Two

Five years ago, I went to the fair with 4 year old Kayci and her classmates. I was just a few months pregnant with baby Lucky. (A month later we'd find out Lucky was, in fact, the little brother Kayci prayed for.) Today I had the pleasure of going to the fair with 4 year old Noble and his classmates. It was so fun to do the exact same things, but to see them through his eyes.

If you had told me five years ago that life would get even better and we'd find so much joy in this knucklehead, I probably wouldn't have believed you. And I wonder if Kayci is pleased with the answer to her prayer...may be better not to ask!!

Blue Ribbon Girl

Kayci entered three photos into the Washington County Fair this year and won blue ribbons on all three!

Here she is standing in front of them. Hers are the orange flowers above her and the two photos immediately to her left. One is of Jackson at his birthday party and the other is of Noble in a hoodie.

Congratulations, Bitty!!!

Water Piling

This year Kayci's GT class is similar to our Encounters; she leaves campus one day each week to spend a day in a science lab.  So far, she's been three times but has absolutely RAVED each time!  She's been wanting to show us a "water piling experiment," so last night after dinner we told her to get to it.  We all sat around the table and watched the scientist work.  I can't wait to see what she learns this week!

(Note:  yes, Noble was already in pjs at dinner.  I cut his hair yesterday and then let him play in the bath until Daddy came home...until he got shampoo in his eyes, it was even more fun than swimming!)
