Relay For Life

The Houston Area Relay for life is this coming Friday. I have signed up with a friend of mine to walk with the team from her boys' school.
"The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people across the country each year to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too much."

None of my family has died from cancer, that I know of. I do know that my grandfather was a cancer survivor. Currently, my mother's good friend is dealing with the illness of her daughter-in-law that has been a long hard road.

It is sad that in these times we still lose so many people to such a horrible sickness that can be quick or horribly long.
Please consider donating to the cause at
Every little bit helps to secure the future for our children.

Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens

On Monday, our home school group took a field trip to Mercer Arboretum.
It was a guided tour and the kids (and moms) learned quite a bit.
I thought I would share a few pictures of the kiddos exploring the gardens.

Tie Dye Eggs

We put the egg into the baggie and added a couple drops of each color we wanted to use.
Then we squished the baggie around the egg to mix up the colors.

The finished product looked really cool and we were very happy that we bought that kit.

Coloring eggs

Today we spent the afternoon coloring eggs with friends. Oldest Child decided not to participate. Of course, I got so caught up in coloring eggs and having fun, I forgot to pull out the camera until the end. I did get a couple of pictures of one of the tie dye eggs getting colored.
Above are the eggs colored by non redheaded children.

Here are the eggs colored by redheaded people (me included).
