Scenes from the weekend

Kerry's 5 hour epic mountain bike ride wasn't the best ride ever and he wrecked his 2 favourite shirts. He hit a tree and didn't even notice it was that bad until Ryan said "Oh, man, doesn't that hurt" or something like that, probably with more swear words. It goes about 4 more inches up to the top of his shoulder. I got him to blow bubbles for Linus, Sally is too smart for bubbles and Linus hasn't learned yet that bubbles are not tasty treats. Waiting patiently. It's almost close enough.
I missed the actual taste test but you can see the results. Yuck.
Oh, yuck.
It's still on my tongue.
Oh, man that was yucky.

This one is bigger, it probably tastes better!

I was wrong.

Emily loves hair clips right now. Yesterday, I hot glued a zillion of them for her. I also made her the hairclip holder out of chipboard, felt and twill tape. She loves it. I got a gob of hot glue on my finger and pulled it off right away, now I'm missing a chunk of skin the size of my pinkie finger nail. It didn't hurt so much right away, and it didn't bleed, thank goodness. But when I put a bandaid on it, I almost passed out from the pain of the gauze touching the gapping hole. The things we do for our kids.
And then today, I made a zillion more hair clips. She can give them to her friends.
