Household DIVA!

As a young girl growing up, I always looked forward to watching Leave it to Beaver every morning. I was always amazed at how perfect June Cleaver always looked. She was perfectly coiffed, dressed and her house was spic and span. "No way, no way, could a woman look so good when doing her household chores!" This is just tv land, not real life.
Well today, I had to chuckle. I was all set and ready to go to work. I had 15 minutes before the sitter arrived, so I thought hmmm...I will do the vacuming now, and one less thing to do when I get home. I had a June Cleaver moment! I looked fab, my house was clean and my children were behaving just like Wally and the Beav.
So, I give June Cleaver credit. She was a woman ahead of her time. She was a busy Mom, who knew how to multi-task and looked good doing it!! You are my hero, June Cleaver.

Prima Ballerinas

On Sunday, Meme, the girls and I went to the beautiful Mechanics Hall to see the ballet, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The hall was the perfect venue to see the ballet. We were seated in the fourth row and the accoustics were perfect. The audience consisted of beautiful little princesses all dressed up in their beautiful princess attire. The show was magical. Only 90 minutes long, and before each set the narrator told the story and then the dancers took the stage. Very age appropriate and the girls were just so engrossed in the ballet. Of course they loved Snow White, but Annaka also liked the "evil queen". Meme and Mommy loved the blubirds that followed Snow White where ever she went. It was a wonderful, girly day and we had a delightful time.

It's a BEAUTIFUL day!

FINALLY!! After 10 days of raw, rainy weather...the sun has decided to come out. It is sunny and in the 60s. The kids are thrilled! It is their April vacation and they have been going stir crazy. Today was filled with baseball, swinging on the swings, playing in the sandbox and kids just being kids. Thank you Mr. Sun for shining down on us.

Christopher received some very exciting new yesterday. Here is a portion of the letter he received:
"Congratulations! Your poem has been selected for publication in the Young American Poetry Digest. You are to be commended for your creative efforts.
We invited teachers and librarians throughout the United States to submit student's poetry that best represents young Americans' creative abilities. Maureen E. Davis from Dudley Elementary School submitted your poem which was reviewed and selected for inclusion in our 2007 poetry book. The selection panel members are all educators who selected only the best poems submitted, ones that are especially well written for the age level of the student."
Christopher's poem theme was peace. I do not have a copy at this time. I will get it from Miss Davis and post at a later date. Christopher shares this honor with his big brother Buzz. Ryan's poem, "One Dark Day", a poem about September 11th. was published in the 2002 edition of the Teacher's Selection Anthology of Poetry.
Christopher loves to write and has a very creative mind. Many times his teacher has commented, "did you write this?" We are so proud of his accomplishments!
