I am just taking a minute to eat a piece of lemon pie and post this between cleaning so it is real quick. I don't want to stop long, I have things left to put up after the yard sale and reorganize so just a quick picture of my little friend to share.

Good Morning!
I finally decided the pictures and have them ready to take to the festival today. Actually I developed 2 of Charli and will see which one of those is best and did the one of the bird at the beach and the water lily, I hope you will wish me luck!
I did find out what is going on at work and my 3 oldest will move up, I am trying to keep Hunter, though because he won't be he much the summer since his Mom is a teacher and I am afraid he will have trouble adjusting. He is the one I initially had trouble with but I learned how to be a better teacher for him and I do not want that to be messed up. I haven't met the new ones coming up, either, I do know one is another of Shirley's grand kids and hasn't been at the center long.
These are zinnias from my garden, I love the speckled ones, they came from seeds I bout at Jackson. I will try more next year, I think. Well I had better hurry because I want to stop by Walgreen's before work!

The rain has really helped my herbs, I love going to smell them! The only ones not doing as well are the pineapple mint and the lavender. Les has plenty of tomatoes so far and some cucumbers and we have already has a little squash, we did lose some to slugs. Have a couple of peppers, too.
I was very proud of Yochih yesterday! Not only did she not cry or cling to me she played with the other kids and spoke. She talks Japenese to her Mom but keeps that paci in her mouth and has patted and pointed up to now. I am waiting to see what kind of changes are made, we had a note that classes were being combined and one of the teachers said I would have to move to another class, I am praying she was wrong!

My Butterfly bush is starting to bloom and my zinnias are showing out! Next year I need to plan better on them though, I need to figure out height better because I have some shorter ones in the middle. I have had good luck with these and my Verbena and my petunias are ok but the phlox, hummingbird rose and salvia are not as good. I know why though, Les mixed sand in the top soil instead of using potting soil and the soil is too hard, will remember that next year!
Yochih, my new little girl did not cry at all yesterday but stayed in my lap or beside me the whole time. Cai and mason were sick so had just 5 kids again.
When I got over to Gina's Charli was whiney! I had to laugh, she when into her room, got a blanket and crawled on the sofa before Gina even left! She went to sleep a few minutes after 2 and did not wake up until just before 5! Shae was in a fun mood then and we played until her Daddy came home. Got some great pictures of her dancing for me!

I forgot to say that I changed the photo at the bottom of my posts and added a favorite one from these!

Fun in the water! Charli gave me some wonderful shots Sunday! These are of her in the water, Look at that diaper as she walks up the hill, LOL!
My new children did really well, Yochih came in crying but after I got her Mom out she stopped after 5 minutes or so and stayed by me for a long time. She then started playing and was smiling and laughing, she is a beautiful child! The little boy, Cai was fine, just like he had been there. I only had 5 kids and it was nice. I should have all today and Thursday.
Had a meeting for VBS, it is coming up fast! The 20th we will have a Kick off with water games and a parade through local neighborhoods, that is a fun day. I will be getting all my crafts together and rearranging my class for it soon.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

My friend Debbie gave me this wonderful award today. I do not keep up with a lot of Blogs to pass on this to and really mean it so here are the few I do enjoy because they keep up with the writing and make the Blog fun to read...

Zaroga who I so enjoy and feel as if I know! I hope you have a relaxing fishing trip!
Linda who shares her wonderful Word Art with us and is a great person!
Tammy who is one of my first and best digi friends and has two great boys to scrap!

Well those are my favorite I hope you enjoy them, too!
I think this is one of the best pictures I have gotten of Gina's family! Charli finally smiled a little, LOL!
I got some great pictures of her playing in the river I will post later.
Today my new kids start so it should be interesting, I will miss Livi and especially Kameron! She would even want me to put a band aid on her instead of her Mom, the other day she put a glove on and put it on my head and said, "it's alright Honey, I won't hurt." That made my day!
Hunter will not be there a lot because his Mom is a teacher so she wants to spend time with him, that's nice.

This is my FIL with Gina and Charli, he really did pretty good, I think. It was a big to do trying to get him there and he left early which I was not happy about because we got out of church early so we could follow them but, that's live with him right now...
He was hurting bad in his stomach last night, I keep wondering if he will make it through the month or if both Les and I will mourn our Dad's in June.

I will probably share several pictures from the Gary Reunion the week, these are Charli running and with Meagan Gary, Les's cousin Paul's youngest child. She is 3 days younger that Charli and one day older than Seth. She just wanted to hug Charli but Charli is not a very huggable baby and would not let her. I couldn't get a picture of Crystal's grandbaby who was born in April.
New Scripture Challenge up at SBE, come join us for Great WA by Rina as we share our Faith!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
