Randomness and Pinspiration

      Whew what a week, it's still busy busy 'round here as we are still wrapping up end of school year stuff. One week today and we have our freedom for two months, I can't wait! But it also makes me a little sad because this is the last week that all my kids will be in the same school together. Next year will be Nyla's first year of junior high (or middle school) which is a half hour away,(that is, if  we decide not to home school, but more on that later!) They grow so incredibly fast don't they?!   Anyways, before I get carried away to maudlin city, let's move on! Today is my kids Fun Day at school and they are so pumped for all the fun to be had. The only bummer is that it is POURING rain (as it has been the last couple of days) and normally Fun Day would be outside think: slip and slides, games with water balloons and sprinklers etc. Oh well, I know the teachers have a bunch of fun indoor games planned this morning and then the whole school is having a movie day in the afternoon in the gym. I'm going to go there in a little while and help with the hot lunch (maybe I'll even get to make some of the ice cream sundaes! Yum!)
      Anyways, like I say it's been super rainy here (normal spring weather I guess :) so I've been feeling the crafting bug upon me, and even though I feel it I haven't been able to do all that much, I've sure been "pinning" up a storm on my Pinterest boards :) I looooooooovvvvvveeeee Pinterest, don't you?! And I have to say, it's especially convenient to have the Pinterest App on my phone, so when I'm waiting for the bus, or waiting for a ferry (long story) etc etc Pinterest, here I come! I'll just share a few of my current favorite pins lately but if you want to check out more of my pins and boards, just click on the board on the right sidebar.

I've been working on learning how to crochet this year so these were really inspiring, and I just love all the colorful colors!!!

Are we done yet?

I had a post all set to go for today and then I saw this post by Jen and I HAD to share it with all you other mom's out there whose kids don't finish school till the end of June. It is hilarious!! It so perfectly describes how I (and I'm sure many of you other moms with school aged children)have been feeling the last week or so. I'm so done with making school lunches, the kids are ready for freedom (they keep asking to have "sleepovers" in each other's rooms) I tell you I was exhausted by 8 this morning (could have something to do with the fact that my eldest left for a four day school trip this morning!)

So check it out it will hopefully bring a smile to your day! Oh and by the way, the blog post got so much attention, Jen was on the Today show!

Check her blog post titled "Worst end of school year mom ever!"

You can check out the Today show with Jen HERE

Now, I'm off to deliver lunches that never made it into the backpacks this am :)
Solidarity, moms, solidarity!
Have a great week ;)

Penticton Farmers Market

Good morning to you! So I've been sharing a lot about my hubby and I's little vacation last week, and today I'm sharing a bunch of photos of my Saturday morning at the Penticton Farmers Market. Let me tell you, I was impressed! It was awesome! So colorful and fun, lots and lots of vendors of all sorts of things like scarves,
