It was hotter than hades on Tuesday. It was a day for bubbles and popsicles and lots of water play.
During snack, before storytime, we took a minute to reflect on our favorite parts of Playdate. Missy Bugg declared that was an impossible question to answer, though the creek pops right out all over. I brought their attention to the blessing of a safe and happy summer enjoying God's marvelous creations. I prayed they would know good from evil when they lay eyes on it, to live long, prosper and have a merciful end. My constant prayer for all my poopies.
Sydlee was the master bubble maker, but everyone got in on it, including the adults.
We tried a recipe with gelatin. They did seem to last longer.
Watching Claire move like a robot and the kids following this bubble just cracked me up for some reason.
This next picture is back when she was Claire Bear and about the same age as her youngest is now.
June Bugg worked and worked to finally get this bubble- hurrah!
I've gotten pretty good at having everything ready to roll, so I can get supper on the table in just a few minutes. Rae and Ms. Glitzy and I then fill plates as hard and fast as we can go. Even though it was hot, a hungry crew inhaled the dumplings and green beans, Jello jigglers and bread pudding.
And then you have these two sweet funny kids, who joined Playdate at 2 and 5 years old. Now their hysterical, impromptu, lack of stage show, plays to a captive audience.
After the dramatic production, Giddy-Up was desperate to limbo some more, so we did.
Holding up that end of the broom was about all poor Bean could do. He had a terrible allergic reaction to something. Ceece reminded the same thing happened last year. I don't know what it is, but it sure is fast and awful.
So, like it our not, time for me to return to my day job.
Precious to me, these people, these memories, these blessings. Thank you Lord!
