Simple YUMMY Banana Bread

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup mashed bananas
1/4 cup nuts (optional)

Mix and bake @ 350 for an hour or until very brown.

I use a bread machine, so it mixes and cooks it for me.
Fun and easy for kids to make.

William Shakespeare

On Friday April 18th Jaden's school had a celebration to observe Shakespeare's birthday. They told the whole school (K-12) to dress in their favorite Shakespearian attire. There were dragons, fairies, and other beautiful costumes. They had a Shakespearian feast, a parade through the school with instruments, banners & streamers, a Shakespearian dance, and a performance of Hamlet by students. Now that's what I would call a learning experience.

Jaden has told me the story of Hamlet many times now after watching the performance. She just loved it. She also really likes the name Herachio (Hamlet's brother). I only wish all schools would make learning so fun and rememberable.

What a little color does to a room

It has been a long couple weeks of moving and painting, but it's SO worth it. I love our new place. I love putting color on the walls. We aren't done yet, but soon enough.

Yeah I finally have internet again! The moving has gone well, and I have taken many of pictures along the way. First off though what you all have been waiting for...The Bald pictures!

Of course I got emotional.

Oh that's pretty!

We did it!!! I am so glad we did this together as a family.

I can't believe this was on my head! No wonder I was getting headaches.

Here we are 3 weeks later.
