Last Weekend

Last weekend was a crazy busy.  Kayla came home for the weekend and stayed over two nights.  Karl was home one overnight too.  I love when the kids come home.

One of the reasons Kayla was home was to help me out.  She’s much more computer savvy and sometimes, I really need help.  I’ve had an on-going battle over the last two years with my Making Learning Fun website.  Some of you might not know but I have an early childhood printable website called Making Learning Fun.  With Kayla’s help, I started back in 2006.  I worked really hard on it for 6 years and then slowly backed off.  Technology changed.  The programs changed and I felt very frustrated.  Things didn’t work the way they previously did and I was ready to quit.  Then when we moved to town, I wanted to get back and work on the site more.  It was hard.  I didn’t have time and again, the program changed and I needed to work with a new program.

Well Kayla got on board and offered to help me.  Over the last few visits we’ve thought we had things going but then had trouble.  This weekend after a morning of work and the help of a our computer guy, we figured it out!!  I am so happy.  I even posted a few new activities this weekend and I can honestly say while I don’t know the program, I can at least load something on to the website.  That is a HUGE relief to me…but now, I need to find time  to load a few projects there now and then.  It’s something new for me and I have to keep doing it or I’ll forget how.  I’ve regretted not continuing the work on my site so now’s my chance to work at it again.

After that got under control we decided to hurry off to Decorah and hit up the thrift stores.  Kayla and I are both die hard thrifters.  She was able to find some yarn and a couple other goodies.  I found some little boy baby clothes.  I always keep a few extra items here just in case the kiddos parents forget to bring clothes so now I’m set for little boys too.

Then we were off to the Oneota Food Co-op.  Kayla and I enjoy going there.  Dried Figs are my favorite…I love the beet salad too.  We love sampling the goodies.


Kayla and I both also love the baskets at Oneota.  She bought herself a new one!!  Here’s a closer picture. …

Facial Hair

When Kalissa was pregnant before Carver was born we were both here at my house with the childcare kiddos.  Hubby was home and teasing one of the kids.  I have to tell you, lots of kids don’t like Hubby.  I think it’s the beard and the rough look of him.

After the kids left Kalissa got a little teary eyed and said, “I don’t want Carver to be afraid of Dad.”  I laughed.  I know he won’t.  Hubby will be spending a lot more time with Carver and Carver will get used to him.

A couple days later Kalissa came to me and said, I was thinking…I think it’s Dad’s facial hair that bothers kids.  It might be I told her.  They we got thinking about Carver.  Most of the men who will be in his life have facial hair…
