We decided to carry the handmade theme to Valentine’s Day this year.  The kids and I made homemade Valentine Treat Bag for their entire classes.  We all went online and searched for ideas.  Each picked his/her project.  I finished them up that night.  But making almost 100 bags was fulfilling yet tiring!  We more s’mores in a bag for Madie, goldfish for Ben, and teddy grahams and gummy bears for Ainsley.  It was great and worthy of photos!!  The kids were so proud.

So this was our first Blue and Gold Banquet where we had to bring a cake to auction off.  So I made an Ultimate Cake and Ben helped me. My cake sold for $100 and I told the second bidder that if he still wanted the cake that I would sell him one too.  I happened to have another cake at home for the church cake sale, so I went home and grabbed it and sold it to the other bidder for $75.  I think that’s pretty good!!  The underestimated the number of people coming for the banquet, so we ran out seats.  The kids all had to share chairs, but we got to eat some awesome BBQ.   Ben received some really cool awards.  It was a good day.

Ben had all of his grandparents there for the celebration.  How cool is that?  They all came in for the visit and to see his program.  He was all smiles.  Daddy said he needed to stay in school for consistency sake, so he didn’t join the grandparents for lunch afterwards, but was so disappointment to not eat lunch with them that I think we will make the sacrifice of consistency for the sake of love of grandparents.

As always, Ben did an excellent job.  He was adorable.  And again, Ben decided what he wanted in a costume and I just the person who purchased the materials.  Hopefully I’ll get some of the videos uploaded one day.

Ben was picked to go to the Science Day and represent Wilkinson Ele. at Conroe ISD Science Day.  Every elementary school in the district sets up a booth at the Convention Center and has a science experiment for the kids to do.  It was a cool day.  The kids had so much fun. Ben was so proper in his apron and explaining everything at the booth to all of the visitors.  I was excited to see him at the booth.  The girls and I went around to the other booths to see the experiments, then we picked Ben back up after his shift was over and went around to more booths.  It was a good day.

Ainsley and Ben are taking gymnastics at the Conroe Rec Center.  It is a great class that gives them a little taste of what gymnastics is like.  Plus it is a class that they can do together.  It is fun and they are having a great time.  I am thinking of taking a break over the summer.  But our summer is already so busy!  We may just do other things.

Today was our last 100th Day Celebration.   After this year, they don’t dress up or do anything special any more.  It was a sad but fun day!  I wasn’t able to go to school and be with Ainsley but we took pictures before she left!
