I got off work a little late and when I checked my phone I had a text from my daughter, Micah. She had forgotten that the Cubbies awards ceremony was this evening. I dashed through the Burger King drive-thru, scarfed down a burger on the way to the church, and arrived just in time to sit down with Micah, Adam and Adele and watch Audrey and Hazel get their little awards. Cubbies is part of the AWANA program. Audrey will graduate to Sparks next year. They were very good and sang along nicely with their group. We went to Dairy Queen afterwards for supper and ice cream to celebrate. I love my little family!
I visited a local thrift store, Bearly Used. The proceeds go to the Developmental Achievement Center, so it's a win-win with the good deals you find. I bought several knitted/crocheted pieces. I forgot to take a photo of the two baby blankets and the boppy pillow I bought for Micah. I also bought her a "gypsy" skirt, which she liked a lot. She'll probably have the nerve to actually wear it. I bought a similar skirt for myself this winter. We'll see if it sees the light of day. ;)
Both skirts are this sort of shape. Micah's is various shades of yellow/gold and mine is kind of sage green. I love this kind of stuff, but I hope I will actually wear it. It's a nice cool way to dress for summer. I think the trick is to wear a very simple top and sandals.
Here are two of the blankets I picked up to cover my recliner and make it softer. :)
For those who may not know what a boppy pillow is...here's a picture from the internet. It's to rest the baby on while nursing.
First step. Relocate the books...
