Memorial Day Weekend

It seems that this weekend has come unmoored from it's usual date on the calendar, so instead of the last weekend in May we celebrate a week early. The kids are home for a long weekend. Phil is off to Chili Challenge in Waterville Valley to make magic and balloons happen. Dad has gone up to his parents to cut and trim some trees down to size. Glady finally found Bebe after losing him for 24 hours - tragedy! Johann, Juliet, and Pippa have all his playdough and toys spread out and are having a blast. I will start lunch soon - and that's all the news!

Oh, except that I cut the top 1/4 inch off my thumb, so I can't type well. Ow.

mr and mrs Bluebird... Johann likes lilac smell. We took a walk this morning and here are a few of the pictures I took.

we finished up with planting the trunk. I put sedum, both native and Dragon's Blood, and Saponaria in there. I also put in my pot of hens and chicks and the dianthus Glady gave me for Mother's day.

Lego Warrior

The entire lego group - Glady is in the center. Glady's team. I gather they won in that the battles were a draw, but their robot didn't fall over.
The lego robots own the gym!

Glady has been taking part in an after-school enrichment program for the last few weeks. She and her classmates built lego robots and then battled with them. I let her take in a camera the last day, and here are her pictures.

End of a long week

The kids found a garter snake under the stoop - I cought it and they each got to hold it before we released it back into the garden.
The kids pose with Nana and BoPop's car as we were taking it to drop off at the bus terminal that afternoon.

Papa Pushes Broom. The kids picked trash up, and I raked out garden beds.

It has been an eventful one! Nana and BoPop are home from Wales, the kids had a good vacation week, we worked out in the garden almost every day, they watched My Fair Lady for the first time...
