Around Our House

Noah came home from preschool on Friday and he had made a treasure map. He thought it was the best thing ever. He found our picnic basket and put the map in it. Then, he put himself in it. I think he thought he would be the treasure. And he is! I mean seriously, could this kid be any cuter? Nope!

With the unusually warm winter, we're already well past our normal highs. Our typical rule is no garden until after Mother's Day. We got a jump on it this year. Noah helped with the compost.

And he helped till the garden. He was trying to put his foot on this little spade like David was doing with the shovel.

He helped me plant all the seeds too. Why are there no pictures of Emily and Ben. Well, they were inside on their Nintendo DS and tablet.

All that work this weekend, made David and Noah a little tired. There's nothing better than a nap with Dad on Sunday afternoon.

Aren't they sweet?

The countdown is already on for the end of school. Thirty something days! And we have big plans for summer! Camping, swimming, 2 weeks in Idaho and Canada. It's going to be a good time!

Such cute photos and happy to read your update.

Spring is still very slow going here - everything is way behind schedule. The leaves are just beginning to pop out but normally by now, I've already mowed and instead our grass is just beginning to turn green. I think that some things like the lilacs and apples may not even bloom and go straight to just leaves. It's an odd spring here, but thankfully we are having warmer weather finally.

Sarah has even less school time than that left and that's it for the primary school years. Can you imagine when that time comes for you? It's amazing, because it seems like no time has passed at all - it went by that fast.

Have a great new week.
Love, Linda

Grampie and I were both so happy to see our little man hard at work in the yard. Looks like he may be a big help when it comes to weeding! You'll have to make sure he knows which are the plants. I think both he and Dad deserved a nap after all that hard work even if it was the next day. :)
