Week in rewind: Simple things

Chic Homeschool Mama
Another week bites the dust! And what a wild and wonderful beginning of spring it has been. Snow, then more snow, then sunshine. It's the wacky Pacific Northwest, anything goes around here. At least weather wise that is! Twelve weeks crossed off the calendar. Woosh!

This week's theme was simplicity.
Baby girl and her mama came for a visit. What could be simpler than napping where ever you are?
Just a little bit of snow to keep us on our toes. School was delayed two hours for this little bit. Makes me laugh, but even with the delay, a school bus slipped off the road.
More typical for spring in Oregon. Wet, and green
A day of running errands,  and we had a business dinner that night. The "girls" like to sleep on my bed.
Baby girl came over for a photo shoot. We tried so many fun things, easter, travel, the bible...the greatest of these IS love. pure simplicity. She is four weeks old today. I can't believe how fast this month has gone, and how she seems like she's been with us for years.
Saturday night I went to a craft night at a young woman's home. It was filled with my daughter's contemperaries and their mom's. The house was covered him crafts. It was as if we walked into an Etsy store. As I looked around the room, babies were in arms, and many in utero. It's such an exciting time of life that these women are in. It's wonderful to watch them grow as women, and mothers.
  There was a raffle for Rowdy's mama who is working on adopting a little girl from Eastern Europe.  Sweet girl, has that extra little chromosone and will be so lucky to get a forever home with Rowdy and his mama and daddy. The reality is it's so expensive and this was a fun inspired way to help the family out. Some craft items went 100% to the adoption fund, and Rowdy's mama is a wonderful seamstress and made such cute dresses that were for sale. She's a crafy lady and I was so pleased to see this group of women come together in friendship and love and support each other. When smart talented women unite, I swear there is NO stopping them!

If you want to learn more about the adoption, there is a button on the side of my blog. You can read about how they came to want to bring this little girl home, and what is involved.
A lovely afternoon at baby girl's other grandma's house. A "sip and see" event for family and friends to come and meet the new baby. This is a shot of baby girl's great grandma.

That was last week, now I best get moving to take this week by storm! Thanks for stopping by.
