I'm Not An Exciting Person...

...but who is?  Sometimes I get caught up in the "oh my goodness...what will I write about on my blog..." slump because I often feel like I have to show off or impress my readers.  But then, I have some very good friends who say to me..."hey...you haven't posted to your blog in a while and I like reading what is going on in your life.  Get on it and keep me up to date."  It make me feel better that my friends want to know about me...and the boys...and about what I am up to...not about a "fake...having to impress people" entry.  So, this is me, real life stuff, no bells & whistles, no "keeping up with Martha Stewart" blogging.  I guess I'm the one who had better deal with it!  :)  So here's what's been goin' on:

I helped Andrew's 5th grade class organize a bake sale to help raise money for their end-of-year events.  We raised $300 by selling cookies, brownies, popcorn...and juice.  Note to self: cakeballs are NOT a good item for a bakesale...no one knows what they are.

Vanessa made me a gorgeous mini album.  Every month we make each other something crafty, something pretty to give to each other.  This was my March prize.  I just love it!

Andew and his friend Kayla had a playdate.  We have a wooded lot in back of our house where our brook runs.  They were exploring the area and found lots of trash.  They decided to be good "stewards" of Mother Earth & picked up bags & bags of trash.  Let us take lessons from the 11 year olds of the world! 

I took Good Friday off from work to spend the day with my boy.  We took a walk around the reservoir between New Hartford & Canton.  It was a gorgeous day to spend outside.

More signs of spring from my flower bed by the front door.

Another playdate.  This time JT (Andrew's best friend) slept over. Burgers, milkshakes, s'mores...a good night to hang out!

Sticky faces!

Coloring eggs.
