Okay, so I'm a day behind. I'd say that isn't too bad. What is terribly bad is that I FORGOT my sweet Luka's birthday yesterday. Now, granted, she didn't remember it either. But I still feel like a crappy doggie mama nonetheless. So....HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUKA!!! She's 7!
While forgetting Luka's birthday yesterday....we did spot something very very cool in the yard. Our first robin! We've been watching and waiting for it to appear, and not only did one appear...but dozens of them appeared! I know this will sound terribly silly, but we popped some popcorn, and the three of us sat in front of the french doors to the backyard watching the birds--it was oh, so much better than the movies. "Look, mama, here comes the downy woodpecker!". We have such a sweet spot for watching so many different birds, and it's very cool to see the kids remember from year to year now which one is which. Ah....spring is really and truly here....
And lastly, in celebration of April, Loobylu announced the theme for Aprils Month of Softies. I was thrilled to read it's "recycled monster action". So perfectly timed, as last week we just happened to start our first monsters (or "creatures" as we call them around here). Please meet Harry and JoJo.
They're both made of felt and stuffed with cotton. Calvin was a huge part of the process, and wants to make more (and he's been drawing what they should look like). Yay! So consider these our trial run for the MOS entry! Oh, and be sure to check the MOS page soon to see all the amazing and daring entries for last months challenging "self portrait" theme.
