Field Trip Friday: Little Troy Park

The Field Trip Friday feature on Daffodil Days is going on hiatus after today. I could list lots of reasons to take a break but the main one is that we found this lovely little swim club and we’ve decided to go there every Friday through the summer! I read once that to a kid, […]

Finally, I painted something!

I didn’t realize what a long process this little dresser has been until I looked through pictures for the original. I found it in March! I bought the boys a dresser, and, as the lady we bought it from was moving, she threw in a couple of chests, two night stands and a bicycle for […]

I’m so social!

Take a look at my sidebar over to the left. I finally got all my social media buttons working. Yea! Go ahead. Follow me!

Field Trip Friday: Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake

Kenny was on vacation last week so we thought a field trip a little further away would be OK. We have had several recommendations to visit the Adirondack Museum, but 1) it is a little pricey to get in and, 2) it is two hours away. Since we didn’t take an actual vacation we decided […]

Too tired to post!

We’ve been having lots of fun lately. So much fun that I’m too worn out to get a post up. Plus I’m a little bit sick. This week’s Field Trip Friday post is in progress and will be up by Monday if not sooner. (hopefully!) Today was the last day of our school year. I’m […]

Dance recital

I know a lot you have seen Novella’s dance recital pictures on facebook. But for those of you who are not on facebook (hi Charlie and Diane!) this post is for you. Before we moved from Alabama last summer I asked around about dance classes for Novella in New York. I was thrilled to find […]

Field Trip Friday: Happy Flag Day!

I think I like doing this feature a week behind. We actually went to the Adirondack Museum yesterday but I managed to take 175 pictures so it’s going to take me a few days to get that post ready. We took last Friday off from field trips, but we did walk down to our town’s […]

A simple project and a new and exciting way to kill spiders!

After church Sunday the whole family stopped by Lowes to pick up some knobs for Novella’s newly painted chest/night stand (post on that project coming this week!). While we were there we picked up some basil and a couple of tomato plants for the patio. While we do have a back yard we share it […]

FIELD TRIP FRIDAY: National Bottle Museum

Welcome to this week’s installment of FIELD TRIP FRIDAY! We’re having so much fun exploring New York. I’m not sure why it took us so long to get started. I think we just needed a plan. And boy do we have a plan now. Field Trip Friday may go on for quite some time. Although […]

I can upholster! Sort of…

Today’s post is just a quick one as we’re off for another Field Trip Friday in a couple of hours. When Abe and I went for the infamous matching desk, we saw this poor little chair on the side of the road. Since we had the seats out of the van, we had to stop […]
