Today my mom and I went out shopping. Our fist stop was the library where they always have a room full of old books they are selling. I found a couple of books on Australia for the project in school and then a few other things that will be nice reference for other lessons. Next we stopped at a yarn shop and I got a nice big skein of yarn. It is such an odd shape, its over sized and looks like a big purple and blue dinosaur egg! Next we drove to the next town to a charity shop where I got a bunch of nifty things to use for art projects at school. I plan on doing some mosaics with the kids so I got about 15 brightly colored plates to smash to use as tiles. I also found some ribbon to use for windsocks and 4 plastic horse shoe game sets for gym class! Such a bargain!
Now for the pictures!!!!
This first one is the view as you come down the hill into the town I grew up in.
These next view are just scenes as we were driving, these are the Green Mountains of Vermont (although they don't look very green right now... and also a few cow fields that I just loved the way they looked.
And now for the grand finale. While we were at the charity shop my 72 year old mum found a scooter... and she just had to try it out! I love my mommy!
