Happy Mother’s Day!  My sweet children made some beautiful gifts for me.  With Dad’s help (and his memories of Cub Scouts), they made this popsicle stick bowl.


At school, my four-year-old made this lovely pressed flower bookmark and the six-year-old made this embroidery wall-hanging.  What a bunch of sweeties.  And Happy Mother’s Day to my mother!  Wishing all the mothers out there a happy, relaxing day.
