Good morning

Today has been one of those mornings when I'm so content to be a part-time "stay-at-home mom." After a rocky start (Scott, I apologize for being so grumpy), things improved. Gus & I went to check out St. Elmo's new coffee shop, Pasha. It was great! Their coffee was wonderful, they've done an excellent job with the make-over of the decor, and I was excited to see their compostable coffee cups. That's right, compostable! This is exciting stuff for a part-time environmental science teacher:)

Mom happy? Check.

Afterwards, we wandered down to watch the big construction project on St. Elmo Ave. Scott had called on his way to work to let us know that "work machines" were out and about. So Gus spent some enjoyable minutes running around in the grass and checking out a dump truck and digger.

Kid happy? Check.

Once we got home, Gus had some fun doing some pudding painting, which, by the way, also doubled as snack time. I'm all about multi-tasking.

Nice coffee cup...I didn't realize you were Scott's wife, guess we never met.

by the way Amy, you look beautiful. I love your profile picture.

Sounds like a wonderful day. I had to go to the post office the other day and parked at the Panera and walked and then had bagels and hot chocolate with the kids. I was wonderful and I thought, why don't I do this more often.

Another fun edible are project...noodle art. Joanna and I put cooked spaghetti noodles in glasses of water with food coloring and then after they'd soaked made some art. That was a lot of fun.

p.s. I noticed the clothespin-in-the-egg carton game on your kitchen counter in the picture of Gus w/ Oma...did he like playing with it?
