I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
We had a Beatles date on Monday night. Hubby drove us to Lincoln where we attended Paul Mc Cartney's "Out There" concert. I had wanted to go to McCartney for some ten years or more and we decided if we did not do it now, we would never have a chance...so we did!
The whole town was awash in Beatles references and piped Beatles music as we walked around looking for a place to eat supper. We ended up outside the arena at a Jimmy Johns that was a bit less busy than other places. The weather was beautiful and the people watching was entertaining. It might have been our imagination, but there seemed to be a lot of people our age and older there!
We had great seats about 16 rows back on the floor of the arena, right in the middle.
We made this fun little fish craft at Bible School. I found the pattern below on line at kiddyhouse.com. Daughter W and I thought the original tail was too conservative, so I altered the tail to be a bit longer and more flamboyant. With simple cutting and folding and one staple you get a 3-d fish. We used old magazine covers as paper, and the fish were bright and pretty.
I needed some stands for them, so I looked around at what I had in the house, and used #20 floral wire and a large wooden bead and some clay to make a quick double hanger for each kid. You could also use pipe cleaners for the wires and paint the bead for more color.
