We spent much of the weekend outside, because now that Texas spring is upon us, things are growing wild and crazy in our yard. I'm kicking myself for not taking any "before" pictures, and I haven't taken any "after" pictures yet either.
I obviously don't blog for a living.
Anyway, being in the backyard provided ample opportunity for mischief of the Little B sort.

|Oh, no! He spotted me!|
In some exciting food news (because we live in Texas, after all, where apparently, we have the highest number of restaurants per capita in the nation), I found this on the shelves of one of our local grocery stores. For those of you who aren't familiar with this savory scrumptiousness, I grew up with Maggi sauce throughout my childhood in Cameroon. I never ever saw it in New York, so I was more than a little elated to see this last week while grocery shopping and snatched it right up.
Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University course at our church, and last night was the first class. Since B normally goes to bed around seven, we knew he would need to take a solid nap to make it through childcare. So we stuffed him full of Korean goodness before taking him home.
So with Easter quickly approaching, our art projects and story-telling around here have focused on the events of the Passion week.
Here is one of our recent "proh-jeks" (projects):
This morning, at breakfast, I was talking to B about Palm Sunday and how Jesus rode into Jerusalem. We had fun shouting, "Hosanna!" together. Then I decided to make a little game of it, and asked, "Did Jesus ride into Jerusalem on a motorcycle?"
B laughed and shouted, "No!"
We went through all sorts of forms of transportation (car, bicycle, dump truck, police car, loader) and animals (camel, zebra, dog, elephant). Finally, I asked, "Did Jesus ride into Jerusalem on a donkey?"
And instead of responding, "Yes," my little ham shouted, "HEE-HAW!"
Well, that's it for today. Have a marvelous Monday, everyone!
