Our First Day of Kindergarten

Ah, what a bittersweet moment in a parent's life. The oldest child's first day of kindergarten. Garrett was a champ. He walked right into the classroom, hung up his back pack and found his seat; all with his parent's peeking through the little window in the door! He has the afternoon session, from 11:30-2:30 so we have none of the early morning rush, which is such a blessing for us! His teacher's name is Mrs. Kerbs and she is very nice...I think he'll end up having a crush on her! Can you tell that Caleb wants to go to school too? He doesn't know what to do with himself while Garrett's gone! Posted by Picasa

Cukes Gone Wild!

Get a load of these! I pick about 8 of these every other day! AHHHH!!! Help! I've been giving
them to anyone who has happened to stop by and I've made marinated cucumbers and tazihki sauce (that yummy cucumber/dill sauce for meditteranean food)...but what else can you do with cucumbers? Lots of salads? I love the green marvels, but there's only so many a woman can handle. It's too bad you can't freeze the suckers. So, if you want some cucumbers, come on by~we have plenty to share! And if you have any ingenious ways to use them up, please let me know! Posted by Picasa
