SUBJECT: Cicada shell
School conferences started the day off at 8am this morning. All three children had good reports, DramaQueen and MonkeyBoy both made the honor roll (which reminds me of the bumper sticker “My kid can beat up your honor roll student.”) and StellaDella is right where she needs to be academically. Way to go kids! – you must get your smarts from your mother. *wink*
After running some errands, we came home and MB helped me clear the yard and garden. We filled 4 containers of yard waste. The yard looks so much tidier now and ready for the winter. I found this cicada shell while we were clearing out the corner garden bed. He needed a close-up!
