Since last time I was here, we've had a LOT of rain, some beautiful spring sun, and a couple of wonderful taste-of-summer days (I will NOT tolerate anyone complaining about the heat, yet). It looks like we're back to the rain again, with Tropical Storm Andrea (ha ha) headed our way.
The lilacs have come and gone, which always makes me sad (especially when it rains most of the time they're in bloom!). The irises and daylilies are blooming now.
We've done some more projects:
|Z, working on this kestral.|
|E's "Tom Lighthouse's World" trading cards.|
|Fun with the recycling bin: marker spinning top.|
|Fun with the recycling bin: antenna fishing pole.|
We've caught dragonflies,
Picked spinach and radishes, and planted three new birthday blueberry bushes.
We've done cartwheels,
Watched turtles and birds, walked in the woods, and plucked off ticks. We swam in the lake, had two sick kids, gone on four field trips, had two field days, and played lots and lots of baseball.
Okay, I haven't played much baseball myself (nor have I had any field trips or field days), but I've watched an awful lot of it.
This weekend, if it doesn't rain too much, E wants to go gold panning, and Z wants to go fishing. M has a baseball practice, and I have a school budget meeting. I hope to do a teensy bit of sewing and a lot of reading, and take a new picture for my banner...brrr that blizzard is making me cold.
What have you been up to?
