Last week was the Girl Scout initiation ceremony, which mostly Mom made up! The girls really liked it, though, and were really into helping. We had our usual "meeting", then got ready and had the moms, grandmas, whoever, come see the ceremony. Here, Chrissy and McKayla are doing their "read and respond" time with Elena. That last one was out of order because blogger is still being difficult. Here she is playing in Mrs. Polly's rocks, as usual.
Smelling a flower...I have to be careful now-I taught her to smell mint, and now she'll go pick off huge pieces of it to smell and to let everyone else smell!

Sunday night we went to Arlington Church of Christ to hear Patrick Mead, who was Jenny's pastor growing up. We didn't really agree with him, but afterwards everyone came over to our house to be guinea pigs for my hand pies for market. They had good advice! Here, we're showing Sonya and Amber cuteoverload.com and the stuffwhitepeoplelike site. Leni really likes cute overload and runs over whenever the computer is out wanting to see kitties. And, getting pretty frustrated if it's just gmail.
Last night we went to one of Chris's old Yoke kid's art shows-since now she's graduating from college! Chris was feeling a little old...

Posing with Kylie at her art show! We were at another art show last week, and someone said something about it being her first art show. We realized, she's been to at least ten! She's a cultured fourteen month old...
