I'm back!

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here! YIKES! I've still been really busy working on class proposals and samples with a deadline this coming week. Not to mention teaching at Bible Study, kid stuff, etc... I'm down to reviewing all my proposals, class hand outs, etc... before submitting. What a lot of work! I feel like my head is above water now though. The end is in sight! However, I do have several other class ideas that I want to work on for local classes.

Today, I have had one of my favorite kinds of days. Pajamas all day, movies with my boys, and art. It can't get any better. Well, if a beach were involved, maybe.

Sam went over to a friend's house this afternoon and Chuck is out getting parts for the boys computer and stuff... stuff I don't understand, anyway, it's just been Max and me. We watched a movie and then, this sweet little sneaky guy surprised me with "dinner" in his room! He set his little table, had flowers on the table (weeds) that he picked for me and everything. It was the sweetest thing. I'm showing you a picture but ignore the disasterous condition of the room in the background. Beanie Babies are breeding in their room and taking over. Anyway, you can also tell the table was well loved. Nothing is safe from paint! ;)

Then, once the table was clear, he sang me a song and played his harmonica. It had a bluegrass feel and he made it up as he went. Mostly it was about his love for me, how he'd never forget me, etc... but somehow Luke Skywalker got worked in there. Not sure what that was about! LOL! I was cracking up! But I feel very loved and special. But oh, he's doing this stuff when he's not even 7 yet and calling himself "The Love Doctor" (got that from Alvin and the Chipmunks) so I think I'll surely have my hands full by the time he's like, oh.... 12? Eek! And, I was just treated to a performance of Max's version of hip-hop. Oh my!

Well, Sam is home now and I need to get him some dinner. I really wish food weren't a necessary part of life.

Max is such a sweetheart. I love the way he set the table.

Where are you planning to teach workshops? It sounds exciting for you.

Awwww... that's so sweet. Let's not think about when he's 16. He's heart-breakingly cute right now!
