Here’s a video (sorry it’s so long – it was a long book) of her reading one of the two books that she brought home. Pinocchio is an AR 1.2 level book. The 1.2 means that it’s 1st grade, 2 months into the school year. This video was taken on the day she brought the books home. She’d never seen it before. The other book is called Pal and Sal and it’s a 1.4 AR level.
Today she had to return the books and take a test on the computer about the books. I can’t wait to hear how she does and for her to get two more books tomorrow at the library.

Outside my window... it’s already getting warm – supposed to be 101* today – YUCK!!
I am thinking... about what to make for dinner tonight – probably Swedish Meatballs.
I am thankful for... the fact that Hanna slept all night long last night! WOOHOO!!
I am wearing... short and a t-shirt
I am creating... nothing right now except for this blog entry.
From the kitchen… the dishes that need to be put away are calling my name.
I am going... to the eye doctor this afternoon – hoping that I can go back to wearing my contacts instead of my glasses.
I am reading... The Time Traveler's Wife – by Audrey Niffenegger
I am hoping... that it won’t be too hot on Saturday for our LPA Pumpkin Patch trip!
I am hearing... Sesame Street and Hanna playing.
Around the house... Hanna’s made a mess – she’s so busy but completely content, so I let it go.
One of my favorite things... is watching my girls play together. There is so much love between them!
A few plans for the rest of the week… eye doctor appointment this afternoon, my mom’s working in Caty’s class on Wednesday, Saturday we’ve got our LPA Pumpkin Patch trip at Countryside Farms and on Sunday we’re going to Apple Hill with my parents.
A picture that I am sharing...

Saturday evening we invited those that came up for the weekend over for a dinner. There were a total of 4 families that made the trip. Not a lot but enough for a great time!
Caty and Joscalynne
Sienna and Airah
Bonfire time = smores time!
I asked her to show me her smore – didn’t realize with was only half the smore – the funny face is because she didn’t like it too much.
Group picture time
Caty, Joscalynne and Sienna

How cute are these girls!

Ready for bed
Family picture time!
I would like for everyone to stop by my friend Tracey's blog - she and her family are in the process of adopting an adorable little boy named Kullen who has Achondroplasia. They are having a fundraiser to help raise some funds to this process.
If you can help out, please do so!

Justin Moore, who’s currently touring with Brad Paisley, made a stop in Sacramento. My friend Junette happens to be in his fan club and was able to get us Meet and Greets. Can’t say it was much of anything except for a picture. After taking pictures with the fans he took to the stage. He put on an awesome show!
Hanna discovered a tiny piano during the meet and greet and she, unfortunately, started playing it quite loudly while he was answering questions. Oops!! Thankfully I had a stash of graham crackers so I was able to side track her from the piano.
