5 Thoughts

1. Lucas had a big report due on Benjamin Franklin this last week.  Not only did he have to research and write a big essay but he also had to make a puppet and plan an oral presentation.  Last weekend we made the puppet and he was going to write his paper on Monday.  He had already done the research at school, which was written on a paper that was in his folder.  A paper I accidentally threw out with his other papers.  Needless to say Monday I did a lot of research on Benjamin Franklin.  (Who is amazingly fascinating and has done way more than I ever realized by the way)

2. It doesn't rain that often here in Southern California, we really need it to rain a lot more to end our drought, but this last week we actually got some rain.  It was wonderful.  Except for when it was time to take my kids to the dentist.  Hadn't really rained all day, started to sprinkle during school pick up.  Got to the dentist and literally as we were parking the sky burst open.  We tried to wait it out a bit, five minutes later we said forget it and hurried in through the pouring rain. But can't complain since we need it.

3. I have a "black-tie optional" event to go to with Eric in a couple of weeks.. now I have to decide if any of my old dresses are good enough or if I need a new dress.  Probably need a new one.

4. Tomorrow I am going to be attending a mini-blogging conference.  It is a special one for LDS bloggers.  I am excited to see several of my blogging friends, should be fun.

5. I am glad it's Friday.  Sometimes that is really all there is too it.

What is your five this week?  Join in!


  1. That project sounds like my son's; I had to basically read info with him and teach him how to take notes. This isn't something they had really taught them yet (2nd grade.) I am very glad it is over!

  2. Gosh, I can't wait to see you dressed up! You always have amazing shoes. And I just absolutely adore the newborn shoot!! Just priceless, it is just beautiful how you captured them.

  3. That puppet looks great!!!
    I say buy a new dress, always buy a new dress :)

  4. Love that shot of Lucas in the side view mirror! He did a great job on his Ben Franklin puppet, too. WOW!

    I wish I could say it rarely rains in London...

  5. Great pictures! I love the first one and the last one. I have to admit, I'm jealous of your weather!
    Glad the project went well despite the garbage mishap!

  6. I have to read an autobiography on Benjamin Franklin for Comps. Maybe Lucas could help me :). haha! I love his puppet, that's awesome! How did he do on his presentation?

    1. I bet he could! He got an A+ on his presentation. :)

  7. what did you use to make that?
