My Favorite Thrift Store "FIND"


This has to be the cutest high chair that I've ever laid eyes on before.. and I was so lucky to have found it at the thrift store. I can't imagine who would ever have just given this away.. but you know the old saying.. "One person's trash is another's treasure" and this is such a treasure to me. It will be in the Gray family for generations to come.

My daughter absolutely loves it and sits in it all the time.. we have to take it from room to room so she can sit in her chair. I'm so glad that I didn't just walk by and leave it at the thrift store.

Bike Fun @ a birthday party

We went to a friend's Bike birthday party. The kids decorated their bikes and she had the local fire department that was just down the street to come and lead us in our bike parade.

The kids thought it was loads of fun and they got to ride behind the fire truck on their bikes while all the neighbors came out to watch our parade... fun, fun, fun!!

My Little Class President

Alright... I am so stinkin' proud of my son that I had to post the news on my blog. This precious child is in Kindergarten and is more like his father than he truly knows! (for those of you who know his father you know what I mean)

Well, because we are in an election "season" and there's so much talk about the candidates... there was an opportunity to teach our kids about politics and doing our part as citizens of this great country.

So, we decided to participate in a class project that was optional. Each member of Braydon's kindergarten class was given the chance to "run for class president". We worked on our poster over the weekend and we made bracelets from pipe cleaner and beads that reflected our school colors
for each member of his class.

I'm not going to claim that our poster was the best or that the bracelets totally won over all of his classmates but I'm completely convinced that it is the extraordinary personality of my son t
hat won him this "election".

By the way... he doesn't have a shy bone in his body. He knows more people in his school from just the few months that he's been there than his older brother knows and he's been there a whole school year ahead of Braydon.

I'll finish by just stating that I couldn't be more proud of my son for taking a chance and having the opportunity to experience a positive outcome.
