I see what you did there.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

The days of the April Fools joke are behind us. No frozen cereal or taped water faucet, no waking up kids at 3:00am or telling of snow delays. Just safe little fun jokes. I try to be a Spongebob, not a Squidward. The boys like this. Maren insists on it. But Lillie was too young to remember the real pranks so she is a bit wishing we would be a little more Squidward.
April first, the kids did open the refrigerator to this. Most of the items in the fridge were looking at them. We did get a genuine smile from the boys. And then they stopped walking on egg shells.

Last night was science fair night at Lillie's school. I went with Lillie and we had a very good time. I got to see all of Lillie's art on the walls, as well as all her friend's and their science fair projects.
When we got there they were still doing the egg drop.We watched for a few minutes. It was very fun to hear the thud of the egg crack and the OOOHHHSSS of the crowd. Then it was into the science fair. Lillie had to be by her project for a half an hour to explain it to anyone who asked about it. I saw things ranging from cookies that fix bad breath to automatic kitty litter scoopers. After her half hour Lillie gave me a tour of her art on the walls.
Lillie's tie dye patch.
Lillie's speak for trees poem. The Lorax inspired poem for Dr. Seuss day.
How about this. Number 7 is Lillie's entrance for the artwork cover of the yearbook. Each year they hold a contest to draw the cover of the yearbook. I vote for number 7!
Not art, but every bit as cool. Lillie was January student of the month! Yay. Fun evening for sure! And maybe our last science fair. Phew, we made it!

See you tomorrow.
