Still breathing...

Since we have been in this rental house, we have had to learn a few new skills as the dishwasher is one of the things that doesn't work.  It has been a good thing!  Besides, we didn't bring many dishes with us and we couldn't fill a dishwasher with what we have.  The Dude claims he loves washing dishes.  So using this when he is older.

Miss Boo has been attending art classes at the library every other week.  I am always awed by how she sees things.  They had a pile of pumpkins on the table, you know those small round rounds, but this is how she sees them in her head.  I love it!  I am framing this one when it comes home.  Such a cool picture.
 This library is an old two story colonial style building.  I love all the posters they have hanging up.  This is totally my favorite!
 While waiting for Miss Boo to come out of art class we downloaded the new Frankenweenie app and had a blast with it.
 This was Miss Boo's choice of accessories.  lol
 Miss Boo has met a friend at school and they invited the kids over to paint pumpkins.  I love how the Dude stays true to himself no matter what holiday it is.
 And Miss Boo is always true to her inner princess.
 Fun game of "Headbanz" and painting pumpkins.  Could life be any more perfect?
 Our life is getting easier.  Making friends and keeping busy.

In my next post I will go into the whole school drama that has resulted in moving the children to other schools.  Sheesh!

I am happy to hear that you are getting settled and making friends, but so sorry there had to be school drama. :( I grew up without a dishwasher, and had some of my best conversations with my stepdad while he washed and I dried. I wish I would have thought of having my kids wash the dishes...

I've missed you. :)
