April 25

Right now I am...
  • craving a red velvet cupcake like the one I had for my birthday on Tuesday.
  • remembering how it felt to sit on the beach when the weather was perfect.
  • planning a trip to Trader Joe's for more flowers.
  • hoping rain is in the forecast so I can wear my new boots.
We had a great break.

April 14

Each of the kiddos is at a different stage of illness and so Spring Break has started earlier than originally planned.

April 4


Though the calendar says that Spring started a few weeks ago, it didn't really feel like it until this past weekend. My doorbell rang bright and early with friends wanting the kids to come out and play. They didn't return till almost bedtime. They didn't let the rain deter them at all instead donning appropriate gear and heading out. Wren brought this little cup of basil seeds home a few weeks ago from co-op and I couldn't believe it when with a little water and sunshine, they started to grow. I know, right? Rocket Science. I also started some tomatoes from seed and now have 35 (I counted this morning) seedlings growing in my windowsill. I wanted to have a small container garden but looks like my plans have changed. Insert appropriate homeschooling metaphor here...or not.
