You can upload your own photo and play around with it. I've done myself and will now do both the girls - I'd like to see what they look like without bangs. I foresee many wasted hours here. :)
Have fun y'all!

Come again some other day.
Seriously, there are 3rd graders (and lots of other kids and teachers) who need recess! We were supposed to have a baseball game tonight (our first) but it got rained out. No phone call, just unrelenting rain. Drizzle, sprinkle, downpour, we've seen it all tonight.
And in looking at the forecast, there isn't any change for the rest of the week. *mighty groan*
Hopefully it will clear up before the next field trip on June 4th. That already got rained out once. Pray!

I'm going to lounge around until lunch time (which is fast approaching) and then drag them all out to practice baseball (if it isn't raining.) I hope you all enjoy the long weekend with your families!

Time to go, the girls and I are going to bed early tonight. I expect some tears, as certain people are missing their Daddy. The first reaction was, "Well who will brush my teeth and tuck me in tonight??" How pitiful is that?

really good! Here are the links:
The first is reading stuff. The second is math and reading. Both
the girls have completed assessments on both websites and they seem
fairly accurate. I think the math was off somewhat for my youngest,
but that is fine. The second website lets parents "Fast Track"
skills that come up as a lesson but that aren't needed.
We ought to have lots of fun with these this summer! Who needs to

We're also going to "do school" as the girls say. They have learned so much this year and I don't want them to backslide. We'll read a lot and go to the library once a week. The girls have asked to have "flip-a-cards" at home! How funny is that! Considering they haven't flipped a single card ALL YEAR!
Which reminds me, DH and I would like to get them something special for this accomplishment - any ideas? We can't decide what would be appropriate! We never dreamed they'd do it, even though they have talked about it all year. Ideas needed please!
On that note, I'm off to eat chocolate and vegetate. Catch you later!
