Yesterday, the sun was out and it felt like spring for the first time since .... last spring.
We spent the day by the lake, as a family.
Which is one of my favorite things to do, and favorite places to be. So - for Mother's Day, that worked out very well for me. :)
The kids got me my favorite Mother's Day present - a big, flowering, hanging basket. Which I promptly hung out front and we can expect a bird to make a nest in it ... just like they do every year.
I love the things kids bring home from school (for Mother's Day) when they are in about 2nd or 3rd grade. I still have Maea's present hanging on my bulletin board. The one where she spelled my name "Karne" (instead of Karen) and wrote that I like "runing". (I definitely don't like running.:) She drew a picture of me with big, black, bushy eyebrows and big, red, kissy lips. Very creative and artistic!
This year, it was Jayden's turn (3rd grade). He drew a picture of me. Overall - a pretty close likeness for a 3rd grader - but he left off my mouth. I wondered if he was subconsciously trying to tell me something?!?!? :)
