Project Life Tuesday!

 


My pictures for this week are out of order. But whatever! I'm proud of myself for just deciding which ones to use before Tuesday is over :).

On St. Patrick's day, Holt held a reception for families who recently traveled to bring their children home from China. I made these cookie pops, and they were a BIG hit with the kids.


Saturday night was Holt's annual silent auction and gala dinner. We had a GREAT time... it was fun to have something to get super dressed up for! Kurt got a new suit for free from Men's Warehouse because of all the tuxes the guys rented for our wedding, so he was pretty excited about getting to wear it.

Friday (See, I told you these are WAY out of order... I'm too tired to organize them right now!), we had a quarterly meeting with all of the social workers for Holt, and we spent the afternoon at a pottery studio downtown "bonding". It was so much fun. I have loved my practicum so much, and everyone there has really made me feel like part of the team. This picture shows how messy I got, and the amazing bowl I created. I'm sure it would sell for thousands on Etsy.


We also took the dogs to swim at a lake near our old apartment. Because our neighborhood lake has been drained, Kurt was on a mission to find a new place for them to get their exercise - because they need it BAD. They have just been going crazy because of all of their puppy energy and being couped up all winter. They crashed hard when we got home... and the second picture was supposed to be of them all snuggling together which hardly ever happens. Buddy clearly saw me coming with my camera and tried to run out of the way!


I was pretty proud of myself for filling the grocery cart ALL with fresh fruits and veggies, so I snapped a picture with my AWFUL phone camera.
