I have an excuse...

I don't usually air my dirty laundry but there is a reason why we are living out of laundry baskets trying to decide which is dirty and which got cleaned two weeks ago. There's really a good reason, actually a tiny reason....

I'm pregnant!!!
That's the exciting reason. The unexciting reason is that morning sickness seems to be a little worse this time. But I'm about 15 weeks pregnant and so hopefully this season too shall pass. I'm looking forward to the burst of energy that usually comes my second trimester. I'm going to need it to put this home back together.
Oh, and I'll answer the two questions I'm hearing alot lately. No, it wasn't an accident. The due date is April 20.

School Days

C is for Cap

Today Elias and his classmates learned the letter C. To help them remember they all got to wear caps to school.

They are also learning about the states and each chid has a state that they (mom) has to research. It's really hard to find facts that are interesting to Kindergarteners and yet still drawable. Elias got to present what he learned about Pennylvania and to help the kids remember he passed out hershy kisses to everyone. His hand is covering it up, but Elias did a really good job drawing a ground hog and his shadow.
Fun facts about Pennsylvania:
1. Hershey kisses are made in Hershey, Pennsylvania
2. Lots of Christmas trees are grown in PA
3. The ground hog appears on Punxsutawney, PA
4. The Liberty Bell - this realy meant nothing to a bunch of kindergarteners but I couldn't find anything better.
So our next state is Tennessee. Do you know any interesting facts about that state? You'll save me some homework.
