Celebrate This Week

                              Join us each weekend for Celebrate this week with Ruth Ayres.  
 When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
  A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
1.  The Spelling Bee
We had our school-wide spelling bee on Wednesday.
Two sixth grade girls (we're a 6-8 middle school)
qualified as our runner-up and champion!
Look at these creative sushi (Rice Krispies) treats created
by a student and his mom as part of our nourishment after the first round. 
2.  Playdate with Imi!
I've missed my twice monthly playdates with my favorite almost one year old while her mom volunteers in her sister's kindergarten classroom.  Now that my six week commitment in the library is over, Imi and I are back to our regular play dates.  She's grown a lot since our last time together in December.
She loved showing me how fast she can scramble up the stairs.
And she'll walk around the house if I hold her hands.  
3.  Granite is in!
I felt like a kid waiting for Santa Claus as I waited for the installers to arrive on Friday morning.  Next week the tile, some painting, completion of a few final projects, and then appliances will be installed the following week.  Almost there!

4.  Blake and Stefi come today!
My son and daughter-in-law arrive this afternoon.  I love anytime we can squeeze in a visit with my kids who live in the other Washington
(technically they're now in Virginia), but both are a long way from home.  


  1. Oh Imi is precious. What a great week you had!

  2. Sounds like much fun with that cute Imi, Ramona. And have fun with your own kids this weekend, also much fun! Can't wait for pics of that new kitchen!

  3. Imi is adorable, and I am sure she can scamper up those steps pretty quickly! I can't wait to see your new kitchen - I can't imagine the wait and anticipation. Have a wonderful time with your son and daughter-in-law.

  4. Ah, a lovely celebration. I'm always happy to see your pics. Hoping you are enjoying your visitors. Hugs, Ruth

  5. Having your son and wife home for a visit is the icing on a delightful week. Enjoy every moment!

  6. It strikes me that your celebrations are all joys that you get to share with others! Enjoy the company--even if it means digging into that box project!
