I should have made a list of all the things I have to say
Thanks for your comments for the scary ordeal that happened to us: we recovered. I read it happened to a couple of you. I know I should have gone to the police station and I could: I had the choice to turn right and go to my street or turn left to go down the road to the police station. The problem is: I didn't think clearly and never imagined the guy will keep following us. I would have still be in fort Worth, I may have been totally scared that the guy could shoot us. Remember when a mother killed another one in a road rage (in front of her kids ...) Scary. Here people are not as violent but I find them more agressive than before ...
Circus has arrived at Pierre and Emma's school. It's a yellow tent (I prefer the red ones that feel more like circus) This is the second week of activities. I'm so lucky that they both have the show the same week as some parents have to go to see two shows. The school was divided in 2 groups. I really thought I will have two clowns (remember, I'm raising little chickens scared of a lot of things ... ) Well, I'm happy to report I have a magician ( Pierre ) and a little equilibrist who is going to do her show on a giant ball !!! Last night, we went to see the show with the professionals. It was nice: I took some pictures to test my camera for THE big day on friday.
Kids are excited but parents are a little concerned of weeks passing by and not a lot of academic works being done ... It's also a real bother for me as Emma has only learned 4 multiplication tables in the whole school year She learned 1, 2 ,3 and 5. I don't know what happened to the 4 ...
Remember our tadpoles? ( don't worry: they are in good health ) Last wednesday, we went to get more water and food to the river ( we really pamper our pets here ) I tried to get some water in a water bottle and I slided: one of my foot was sinking into the mud/water. So I did my best move: butterfly stroke Imagine someone who is doing butterfly strokes in the air That was ME !!! Well, I didn't sink and saved my tennis shoe but ended up hurting my upper back I'm feeling a little better but that was a big pain ...
We went to the restaurant to celebrate mother's day and Pierre's school !!! What was not planned was the trip to my grand'ma. My 87 years old grand'ma has probably the best memory in the whole world !!! She seems to remember everything and doesn't understand why we don't ... I got the usual gift: poems from the kids a school. Chuy got me a strange gift (another one ... ): a medal that say the most beautiful mom in the world ... a kit, fabric or threads would have done the trick
The orange/yellow flowers are from Chuy, the middle one are from my mom and were offered by the kids and the right one come from my grand'ma garden ( they are peonies and they remind me the painting of Marjolein bastin)
I received the threads that I won at stitch pink:
They are holding a new contest so enter your name and you may win a M designs. I was one of the 5 winners among 146 stitchers !!! So give it a try
It took me 3 days to write this post ... Unbelievable ....
