We rented a beautiful cabin in Tumalo Lake, about 15 minutes from Bend. It was private, peaceful and sooo relaxing. We can’t wait to go back.

M is for Metamorphosis

We had a wonderful time learning about metamorphosis last week. We ordered a habitat from Amazon & 5 free caterpillars from insectlore.com (a coupon code was included with the habitat purchase). Unfortunately, ants got to our caterpillars & killed 4 of them so we only got to witness one transform into a butterfly, but we are thankful that one survived!

We feed our butterfly some fruit and sprinkled some sugar water on fresh flowers & after a day of observing her, we set her free.

Weekly Memo Pad

I like being organized because it keeps me sane, so I’m always trying different things to keep me out of the loony bin. I’ve created a weekly agenda memo pad with a checklist of tasks for the week, appointments, dinners, and health & fitness goals. If you like that sorta stuff, print out the free template and make a memo pad for yourself!

You can find a tutorial on making memo pads over at ohmyhandmade!

We slept in our new camper “Lucy” – which we loved! She’s a Retro Riverside RV & I wish I got more pictures of her, but I will post pics of her soon!
