Evan's first grade class had an "art crawl" this morning. Parents, grandparents,and anyone else who wanted to attend was invited to go into the classroom and view the kids' artwork, which was displayed around the room. Evan was most proud of his "royalty portrait" and "abstract art". There were refreshments and a really cute slideshow afterwards. The kids were so proud of their work and so so SO happy to have special people there today!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my Aldi store! For anyone who is unfamiliar with this chain of food stores, here's a little Aldi 101 to get you started. I thought Aldi was a bit "different" at first, but now I am hooked.

I realize I have not written in a long time and I'm sorry. I've been in sort of a funk lately, mainly related to my inability to get pregnant. It is downright depressing! It took us 4 months the first time and then of course we miscarried, now here we are another 3 months later with no luck. So many of my friends and family are having babies or are pregnant right now, and I sort of feel left out. I know my time will come and what's meant to is is meant to be and all that, but I am really down about it right now :( I promise to try to post more often, maybe it wil help lift my spirits.
