I helped with a school project chronicling the life of a butterfly. One of the K family’s children made a poster board of how the butterfly changes from an egg to a chrysalis and finally to a butterfly. It was fun and the end result was so cute.
We worked with foam cut outs from the local craft store.
Here is the caterpillar.
One of many butterflies.
It was not long before butterflies filled the table.
The end result.
I give you the sweet art director.
We are awaiting a grade for this project. I am sure we will not be disappointed.
Good job everyone!
BTW, I am quite partial to Butterflies!
I will soon share a room with the best roommate in the world. My granddaughter Butterfly. I am in the process of moving to a new city. Same state, just a new city. I am still unemployed and hoping to find better job prospects in my new town.
Butterfly and I are not strangers on the roommate front. She and Cinderella lived with us when Butterfly was an infant and she spent many a wonderful night with me as a young child. We get along like peas and carrots and she already has plans for activities.
Of course, Lucie my big, red dog will join us on this adventure. I already warned Butterfly about the possibility of Lucie joining this pajama party. We have plans to swim, walk Lucie, play with her little brother, D. D., and surely have some interesting conversations.
Not the best photo, although, the point is clear.
I am blessed.

My beautiful, sweet granddaughter recently was having a bit of trouble with her eyesight. She was squinting to see the board at school and had trouble seeing at a distance. She now is the proud owner of eyeglasses. I must say she looks smart and sleek and I am glad she can see things she might have missed without the spectacles.
I was in the fourth grade when I first had glasses. Needless to say, it was not cool in those days. My glasses were brown and white with little flowers on the rims. Still, I hated them and tried my best not to use them. My teacher caught on to this quickly and I think she contacted my mom. Hard to remember.
Today, I can not read directions to cook, a book, or work on the computer without the aid of my glasses. I can see road signs and billboards, but not much up close.
It is ok. We all need a little help now and then.
Love your specs Miss Butterfly!
P.S. Stop growing up already would you?

My first and only granddaughter, Butterfly is not only a budding musician, she is now scholar! That is right. Butterfly made HONOR ROLL!!! Not bad for a ten year old. I didn’t do that until college. Probably because I was let’s say. Lazy? Yea, we will go with that.
I am extremely proud of this little girl. I know she works very hard on her school work. I also know it does not come easy for her. The important part is that she tries very hard and that is what it takes to get by in this world.
I do not know what the future holds for her but I am sure whatever it is will be great.
Musician, scholar, candlestick maker? Does not matter.
You go girl! Grandma juliannah loves you and is so proud of you!

Butterfly, my granddaughter has taken up the violin! I am very excited for her and can not wait to hear her play. On another note she will soon be adopted by Tango, Cinderella’s husband. I am so happy for all of them.
Good luck with your new musical adventure Butterfly and early congratulations on your adoption!

I had a real crazy dream last night, or actually early this morning. My dog Buddy woke me up around 4:00 to go outside. Small dog, small bladder. Anyhow, after he got done doing his business I thought about staying up and watching some news or something because I get up at 5:00 and usually have trouble going back to sleep after Buddy’s potty runs. Well, I laid back down instead and felt like I really was not asleep. You know that feeling of between being fully awake and fully asleep.
Apparently, I was asleep because I found myself smack dab in the middle of this nutty dream. It started in my house which did not look like my house. We were throwing my granddaughter a birthday party, which we did on her last birthday. So I know where the setting of this dream came from. I came downstairs, I live in a single level house, but I have always wished to live in a two story house. I look around and I see a whole lot of people in my house. I suddenly realize that I have no food. I have no idea where that came from because we have food.
Next I see my daughter, Cinderella and she is wearing a Mormon frock. You know the dress with the long sleeves and high collar. Strangely, I do not ask why she is wearing this dress. I have been watching Big Love so that might explain that. She goes on to show me a cell phone that is red and black. Next, everyone goes outside and I am the last to go outside. When I get in the backyard I see that Corvette has turned on the water and the whole yard is nothing but mud. I also see that my garden is covered with a black plastic tarp.
I see all these people walking through the muddy yard. I go up to Corvette and ask him why he turned the water on. He just looks at me with a blank look. I then see a guy with work boots that are covered with mud. I turn to Corvette and say, “Do you see all that mud on that guy’s boots?” Again, blank stare.
But here is the most horrifying part. The people start walking ALL OVER MY GARDEN. And if you have been to this blog before you know that I LOVE my garden as I post about it weekly. Anyway, I kept trying to scream, “GET OFF MY GARDEN!” But, sometimes in dreams when you try to talk or run you find you can not do it. Well, this was the case in my dream. Try as I might, I could not get the words out. Finally I did but instead of the words staying in my dream, I actually shouted them out loud. Apparently I must of been pretty loud because at that moment Lucie, my big red dog leaped off my bed and ran out of the room!
I did not lay down again because there was no way I was going back in that dream! Funny thing is I never saw Butterfly, my granddaughter and I did not know anybody there except my family.
Sorry Miss Lucie, but that is my garden and nobody walks on it. Ever.
And, I do not think the Everly Brothers had this kind of dream in mind.

This was hard, even though I had fun this past week, but I did not capture too many good photos. Oh well here goes.
It is fun to eat good food.
It is fun to watch your granddaughter open birthday presents. Happy 9th Birthday my Butterfly!
And, it is fun to blog, on my pretty, red Dell laptop!
I did not have much time to edit, but hopefully you will get the idea.
Stop by I Should Be Folding Laundry for some more fun.

Happiness is watching my granddaughter, Butterfly prepare to lick the icing off the candles on her birthday cake. She is nine years old as of June 5th. We had a Hawaiian party at my house on Saturday complete with leis, grass skirts and plenty of Hawaiian decorations.
Four little ladies feasted on sub sandwiches, macaroni salad and of course, cake. They also beat up a pinata and scrambled for candy. Sweet day!
Happy Birthday my sweet Butterfly!

I am going to admit right out front, this shot was not taken this week. Sometimes life gets in the way, so I looked through my older shots and came up with this one. Sorry Beth, but I hope this passes muster.
This was a few years ago, I went on a girl’s camping lake trip with my best friend, Lady Red and my granddaughter, Butterfly. This shot is a silhouette of me and Butterfly looking at the lake one morning. I like how she is looking up at me and holding my hand as I am taking the photo.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Lunchables. All opinions are 100% mine.
I was very pleased when asked to write about Field Trips For All. As a child, I loved to go on field trips. When my kids where small I would jump at the chance to go on school field trips with my each of my children’s class. I remember one particular trip near Halloween. My youngest son and his class went to a pumpkin farm. It was fun, but I ended up carrying three huge pumpkins all by myself. But, that is another story for another day.
Right now Lunchables Lunch Combinations is sponsoring a contest to help kids all over the country experience an incredible, educational program called “Field Trips For All.” With so many budget cuts in schools these days, it is estimated that more than 30,000 schools will eliminate field trips altogether.
Do you know a deserving child that would benefit from this program? Well, if you do you can nominate that child and his/her classroom. Check out this video of a group of children visiting the Columbia Memorial Space Center. The video is called Alien Field Trip and it is priceless.
Was that not a great video? The kids were so fascinated with the aliens and that experience will last a lifetime! This could even inspire some of the kids to get a career in science. One of those kids might even grow up to become an astronaut. So please, you can see so how beneficial this program is. I plan to nominate my granddaughter Butterfly’s class. I know she would love to go on a field trip. Also, please come back here and leave me a comment on who you nominated. If your child’s class wins, please come and tell me about it. I would love to do a follow up post about the class experience.
Once again, it is truly my pleasure to blog about Lunchables Lunch Combination’s Field Trips For All.
