The Cutest Apron Ever and Tree Climbing

My friend from Atlanta sent me the the neatest apron I have ever seen!  She bought it while teaching school in Okinawa, Japan in the 1960's. I love the detail on the appliquéd pocket and the adorable embroidered  face!  I love to use my aprons, but I will only use this one when I am absolutely sure I won't mess it up.  Who am I kidding, that would mean I'd never use it and it's just too pretty to be stuffed in a drawer!  I need another wall just to hang pretty aprons on don't you think?

The kids enjoyed spending some time outside today.  

Sweet Cheeks sat on her little tractor and one of the chickens came up to visit her and she kept saying, "No, no bac bac, (her interpretation of a chicken sound) no no! 

I spent part of this afternoon teaching a couple of my grandchildren to climb trees.  I loved climbing trees as a kid.  We had so much fun!
