"...It Followed Her to School One Day..."

So, "what" followed "who" to school?? So glad you asked! :-)

Kelsey has been asking for quite a while if she could take a lamb to school for show and tell. Monday was a beautiful day, so I fulfilled that wish. I went out to my parents house Monday morning and picked up a small bottle lamb, brought it home, gave it a bath (yes, in the bathtub IN the house, hence the EXTREMELY strong smell of bleach that followed the bath water :-)and put it in the garage until time to take it to the school. Kelsey was very proud and her kindergarten class was thrilled. Plus, I got to mark one more thing off my list of promises. :-)

I didn't get the best pictures. I also had a 2 year old and a 7 week old I was trying to watch. I think I got a very small taste of what it must be like to have twins or triplets. "Kaden come here, watch the lamb, don't let it get away... is Karson crying, oh...grab the lamb before it gets away..." Tried to Love every minute of it. :-)

Didn't even get a pic of Kelsey. :-( She's in the striped dress.
This weekend we tried out a new place of entertainment~ The Incredible Pizza Company. We joined friends, Kyle, Candice and Camille, and had a great time. It has all of the arcade type games plus bowling, mini golf, bumper cars, go carts,... We loved it.

Waiting to get their food from the huge pizza buffet.

Kaden with his friend Camille. He's thrilled, she's still a little unsure of the situation. ;-)

Lovin' the merry-go-round!

Mark and Kyle try their hand at air hockey.

Kaden got to try bowling for the first time. We got to hear lots of "thuds" as the ball was thrown rather than rolled.

Karson was feeling just a little over stimulated. :-)

You're a good mommy! I enjoy looking at your blog every once in a while. I need to add you to my link list so I think to visit more often. I guess I'm one of those "lurkers" that never comment:)

I can't believe that my lil' baby Camille is old enough to sit at the KIDS table! It will be my own baby soon enough!

That was so very nice of you to take the time to make Kelsey's wish come true. I'm sure she will remember that for years to come!

WOW Jana! Where do you get all that energy? Taking care of a tiny baby and washing up baby lambs besides? That is such a neat story! And what a fun show and tell for the kids!

That's so neat that Kelsey took a lamb to school for show and tell! I can just imagine how excited she was!

That was very sweet of you! I can't imagine how much she enjoyed that! It was nice to see you all(even though it was brief) at IHC.
