YOU NEED WHAT???

My superhero in training! Taken a couple summers ago.

Oh, you'll just love this one. My 7th grader (boy) just came up to me this evening at 8:47 p.m. and informed me that he needed graham crackers, frosting, marshmallows, and Skittles for a gingerbread house that he's making....TOMORROW. Fantastic. Only that's not exactly what I said, if I remember correctly. Here's the neat part. I was at Walmart, Target, and Fry's over the weekend, and picked up all the stuff necessary for the gingerbread house that my daughter is making in her class this week. So I'd like to give a toast to planning ahead, and then another for great neighbors and spontaneity! It takes a village to raise a child--GOD BLESS MY VILLAGE!

This is coming from the Crazy Villagers that helps with the raising... Right back at ya babe.. My kiddos have come to you for emergency construction paper and fun foam more than once. It was a pleasure to assist. Love your kids and love that it went from oh my goodness to almost tears to laughter. I think you needed to include the teacher that puts her lesson plans to the children on a wing and maybe a prayer. That was the combo with your little superhero. You my sweet have a wonderful outlook and I love the twists and turns that make life fun and adventurous. It's like the Army. Our Kids aren't going to be around us this for long. Savor it! Mary from Parenthood said it best when she said it gets messy and crazy... I like the roller coaster too...Hugs from the Crazy Villagers across from you...
