More Flowers

Here are some more of the flower pics I took. The rest I'll post
tomorrow. Above are the Dianthus flowers I planted a couple years ago.
I think that they are one of my favourite flowers. That and roses (they smell
very pretty).

Light pink Hollyhocks.

Don't know the name, but are pretty (Grandpa has them, too).

Blurry honey bee.

To me, miniature sunflowers.

Photo Mystery Solved!

Finally! I found out where the photos were. They were in a file we hadn't
already looked at. There are many flower pictures I took, so I'll do a few
every day. Most of them I had to hold down, since it was so windy the day
I took them. Other than that, school has been wonderful, I have other friends I have
in my class that I like to play with, and there is a thing that we do in our class, called "Reading Buddies". Where we help kids in a class in first grade read and do their assignments.
It's really fun, and I got my third grade teacher's granddaughter as a buddy!

(look the other way :-)

Hope you like them!

Sorry, I haven't been posting anything lately. We figured out how to download the pictures, but we haven't figured out where they went after we downloaded them. Anyways, just yesterday we got new pajamas and school clothes. Tomorrow's my first day (as well an Ari's- Kai doesn't start for a while). My teacher sounds super nice, and it's a cool classroom (it has blown up balls hanging from the ceiling that are planets). I know that I won't get lost either, because my classroom is right across from my old one. But I have to admit, it's gonna be different without Maddie, plus I am scared- first day jitters. What could go wrong, though? The worst thing that could happen is me missing the bus!

While I wait to figure out how to put the pictures on my camera (thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!), onto the computer, I will do another post. I have just gotten some new clay, and I made a few cats and dogs. Grandma and Grandpa B. saw them when they were over here, but I'll have to show everyone else when they come over for lunch. Eli and his mom and dad came over for dinner a few nights ago, and I showed him my dollhouse (he saw it- or should I say, discovered it downstairs, so I brought it upstairs to show him). He kept saying "It's just sooo cute!" He also said that if I wasn't finished with it the next time he came over, he wanted to help me. I agreed. I'll show some pictures on here of it soon, I hope. Until then, I'll keep working on the new addition!

For the grand (or maybe not that grand) opening of my very own blog, I will tell you my favorite cookie recipe-Snickerdoodles.

Bake: 350 F
1/2 cup of softened butter
1 cup of sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Blend one cup of sugar and butter in a mixing bowl, until a paste. Add wet ingredients, then slowly add dry. In a small bowl, mix the two tbsp. of sugar with the ground cinnamon. Roll dough into balls, then roll the balls in the cinnamon and sugar. Place balls onto baking sheets and bake for about ten minutes (or until they're a bit brown, but not burnt).
