The LT got a "new job" yesterday. Today was his first full day of work. He is working at the Airborne Headquarters. It's a pretty cool gig. I'm secretly hoping he can finagle a way for me to get to jump out of an airplane...
The DQ turns 12(!) this year and will be going into Young Women's in church.
They are having a dinner for all of the incoming girls and had planned it for Leap Day (but scheduling conflicts required they change it to a few weeks later) so the theme is "Leap Into Personal Progress" so they wanted pictures of the girls leaping.
Now Bean is obsessed with creating the perfect princess room.
She got out her tracing station and traced all of the princesses so we could hang them in her room. She also had a very un-Bean-like meltdown when I told her I would not give her the DQ's canopy bed so that she could have a princess bed with curtains.
I am still trying to go through the last of the boxes of things that were thrown into the spare room. Several of boxes had not been opened throughout several moves. I am determined not to lug this junk to another house.
Today, we found these phones tucked away. Amazing to see how much technology has evolved. The Star-Tac on the left was retired from the LT's usage in 2002.
We recieved a vistor in the mail the other day. His name is Flat Stanley and he came to stay with us and check out Fort Benning!
We "took" him around with us and took some pictures. He learned what life is like on an army post and what things are like in Georgia. Then he wrote a letter back to the class he came from and today, I mailed him back to Arizona.
It was a fun activity to do with the girls and now I am even reading the book Flat Stanley to Bean!
The DQ has a book project due this week and she needed some help. The story is about a girl who looses her leg in a car accident. In her diorama, she wanted to show the before and after for the main character. Today I cut off the leg of the doll and then hand sewed velcro on so that her leg would detach.
I felt like a real surgeon!
(ok, maybe not, but that's as close as I'll ever get!)
I have several projects I've been meaning to get finished for oh, about 2 months now, but just haven't gotten them done. While I was in AZ, I purchased an embroidery foot for my machine thinking it would make some free-sewing easier. I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to lower the feed dogs before I finally figured out that you can't do it on this machine. Awesome.
Oh, and that was an hour spent messing with the machine, not actually sewing...
