Mothers Day

Mikan Days

The annual Mothers Day Children's Festival was lots of fun for the younger 2 children. They each had their own agenda so I sat on a bench while they wandered around making carnations out of gingham cloth scraps or red tissue paper, playing games and walking through a haunted house sponsored by the local Junior Leaders group. M attended the event with friends from her class. The plan was to go for an hour or two in the morning and come home for lunch but I had to call J and ask her to make ramen for S and herself as N and L weren't ready to go home yet. We ended up staying until the very end at 4 p.m. and stopping by the supermarket to pick up a bag of rice as I used the very last grain for breakfast. I couldn't buy much else as L was in the childseat, where I usually put most of the groceries.
