Saturday was gorgeous. Simply beautiful. So was Friday. Friday Matthew invited me to his Star Day in school. Every child in his class has a star day, and it was his turn. His parents, his sister and I went armed with cookies and the things he wanted to show and talk about. First we all had to say why Matthew is important to us, and then Matthew gave a presentation and showed an interview he did with his uncle.
Then the class had to sit in a circle and tell what they liked about Matthew.
And yesterday I garage saled with friends, scored two old apothecary bottles, went to breakfast and then started to go to Jackson's family. I had to stop at a great garage sale on the way first, where I scored this stash:
With Jackson's parents we went to a park, again with a pond (NJ has tons of lakes, ponds, etc.), and joined the hordes that were already there. Jackson and his Dad brought the bikes:
His mother is fine for the moment, and home with instructions to just carry on.
Today it's rainy, but that's part of it all too. The plants and flowers are happy!
I'm off to spend some time with my poor, neglected house, to give it some TLC, and to maybe sew.
