The stove took about an hour to gather everything and make, not too bad. We had to test it out. I got the Dutch oven out and we tested it with an egg. I had a small piece of wood the kids had been playing with, it was part of a fence or something. It was small, about 1x3x12, and I chopped it up into about 10-12 thin pieces with the hatchet.
I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked! We cooked an egg in a short amount of time. I was so excited about it that I wanted to try the one I purchased about 4 years ago and never used. It took more wood than the first smaller one and much longer to get hot. Since I had the Dutch oven out I decided to make some dinner in it. All in all, I almost preferred the home made version over the store bought.
Not too bad for zero money spent.

I snapped a few photos of this new little guy, this one was my favorite. I had great time holding this super sweet babe, seriously he was great!

After coloring, reading and checking out the kindy rooms he got to ride on the bus! After our meeting we met them when they came off the bus. They were all smiles, and Logan was so excited.

The school put on the first ever (that we've been going to this school, 6 years) play with the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. They did a few songs from School House Rock.
I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this show, it was so sweet, very fun and peppy! I was sad when it was over, really I could have stayed and watched another hour of it.
Of course, Jaida was right in her element, doing what she loves and we were so proud of her and all the kids who did such a great job!
Can't wait for next year...and maybe Jenna will be able to get in on it.
Jaida had her birthday party a day later than her actual birthday because she had the School House Rock play that day. She wanted a SPA birthday theme, so we went with it.
I think this cake is what inspired the theme, I had pinned it on Pinterest a while ago and she loved it.
We ate lunch then made an oatmeal mask, foot scrub and did our own mani-pedi's. I must say, it was the quietest birthday party I've ever been to! We had soothing music playing in the background and only a few girls over, made it pretty easy to manage.
We celebrated with Framily Sunday night, so really we had a Jaida birthday weekend with two cakes and lots of friends! We are so blessed to have Jaida, she is very caring and helpful to everyone she knows. We love you, Jaida!
