Today I will go into my daughter's and talk about the class picnic. Her fifth graders will be picnicking at her house on Tuesday. I wonder if the bus will bring them. Last year they walked a good mile and a half to get to Angie's. :):) Poor kids tongues were hanging out. LOL....not really but they wanted to have sodas as soon as they arrived. Angie made them drink water. The soda was for later.
I usually go help with the picnic and end up braiding hair and polishing nails. The girls love it. I won't polish boys finger nails...well yes, call me old fashioned. LOL I will give them a manicure though.
Hope your Sunday is a good one. XO

The sunshine and rain is very good for our plants, just love the warmer weather. 5th grade is just the right age to pamper girls, I am sure they will enjoy the picnic!ReplyDelete
Sylvia, My daughter loves her fifth graders...they don't have so much attitude at that age.:):) The girls are all about the braiding and polish too. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a brave woman your daughter is to have the class picnic at her home and what a great mother you are to help out. We had sun yesterday and I loved it! Now we are back to fog and gloom.ReplyDelete
The weather is to be good on Tuesday....so it will be all outdoors. Except for hair braiding and nail polishing. Hope your skies clear. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
When my son was little, my sister babysat him. He was the same age as her daughter. When my niece got to the age where she'd love to have pink nailpolish on, my son would beg to be included.ReplyDelete
So I'd pick him up at t he end of the day, and his toenails and fingernails would be bright pink. He's 24 now, and tells this story as something to brag about, to show that he's not overly concerned with gender stererotypes.
I love the story about your son. I don't polish the boys nails with color, just clear for the manicure. Blessings for a great day, xoxo,SusieDelete
Beautiful pics. Hope you have fun with the 5th grade picnic kids. The girls will love the pampering. Have fun.
I am wore out when it's all over. LOL. But those kids are the sweetest. They make cards for me the next day. I love it. I try to compliment each kids on something. We all need encouragement when young. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love where you live. So different from where I live though if I drive 30 or so miles west of here it completely changes.ReplyDelete
I liked this post very much. I wish we had had a 5th grade picnic. And no I don't want my toenails painted.
Boston Boy, Oh come on why not? LOL.. We may have wide open spaces...but you have so much history to see there. Hope you are doing well. Can you believe how much of this month has passed by. Blessings to you and Arlene too. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, The basket of petunias sure is pretty and full. The picnic sounds like a lot of fun; I know the children look forward to you being there. I could do nails but not hair! I'm terrible with hair!ReplyDelete
Mildred, Whenever I smell petunias I think of my MIL...so loved them and always have a big pot full on each side of her top step. I miss that beautiful woman, she was so good to me. Some times we let the girls polish each other's nails...that help when there' about 15 girls in the class. I'll get pictures of their nails and hair. :) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Hope you had a fun time at the picnic. We had rain yesterday and bright summer today and as long as it's not snowing I'm happy.ReplyDelete
Carol, Hooray for no snow...I really do not want to see that stuff till next Jan . LOL . I am thrilled you are enjoying your spring. I have loved seeing all your vacation pictures. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love looking at everybody's beautiful flowers this time of year. I'm sure you'll have a great time on Tuesday, it sounds like you are a real blessing to your daughter and the kids! Have fun! Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Cindy, I love going by houses and seeing everyone flowers too. I like to see them on fellow bloggers site also. The kids are fun and basically very good. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your container planters are very cute.ReplyDelete
Yes sun is always nice, specially after rain.
Munir, Thank you. Hope you have some sunshine. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a beautiful setting and your flowers are so pretty. The sunshine after the rains is a blessing. Have fun with the class picnic. It sounds like such a fun time.ReplyDelete
Have a great week.
Celestina, Thank you for visiting. I will get pics of the class picnic. The kids hug me when they leave and thank me for my help. To some it's natural and to some, I know my daughter has taught them some social skills. She's big on them treating each other with kindness. Blessings for a beautiful week. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, That sounds like fun; how nice that the students get to go to the teacher's house. Not sure about the soda though-probably will hype them up.ReplyDelete
Hope it is fun and the weather good; we are still having crummy weather here.
Most of the children are on their best behavior too. I think all kids want to be good....mostly. LOL. The day of the picnic is to be nice...hope so. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
We have had so much rain and darkness then every now and the sun shines. I hope the bus takes the kids. That's a long walk when it is hot. I know how you look forward to the picnic. I would too. I did get some rest over the week-end. It's a good busy. HugsReplyDelete
Wow, Debby, I think we have had a fair share of rain. Glad you rested honey. Praying for your family. xoxo,SusieDelete
How fun that you help out in Angie's class room. Jess said I could help out sometime also in her second grade class. :~) The area around your home is so nice. I am always pleasantly surprised when I see it.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the birthday wishes, Susie. It meant a lot to me. Have a delightful week.
Sheri, I think you would love helping with your daughter's class. You are so welcome for good wishes...you deserve them. You are kind and good. You are a beautiful young woman. I wish you blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your photograph of the field looks good. Nice to hear about your helping tendency. Plants feel fresh when they receive drizzling of rain however we pour water in them.ReplyDelete
Your plants are so beautiful and much larger than mine. i hope you all had a nice picnic. Hugs to you sweet friend. xoReplyDelete
Yeah, it's hard but I don't polish Harrison's nails nor do I put earrings on him....any more. At nearly three years of age - he knows 'girls' versus 'boys'....and that is as it should be. However, he LOVES to push the baby dolls in the toy stroller and I think that's perfectly FINE!!!!ReplyDelete
