Every Spring I am happy to thumb my nose at Winter (especially February) and welcome springtime and this year’s no different. We’ve had such a mild winter here in the southeast so you’d think that I would have felt differently this year but I did not…..I disliked the winter months as much as ever regardless of the mild temps. But, no worries 'cause…..Spring is here, I’m pulling out my garden books (yay!) and thinking about my plan of attack for this year, Ed brought our boat out of storage (and cleaned it...thanks Ed!), I’ve cleaned-up my planting beds and we are thinking about pressuring washing the screened porch this weekend to clear-up all the ‘yellow snow’ (pollen) we’ve been deluged with so far. Plus…we have an Easter get together to host this Sunday and the weather is looking good.
Sammi and Nicki are doing great, first-grade continues to be going well (except our challenges with math but I won’t get into that now…), and they are involved in so many fun activities….soccer (Sammi only), ice-skating (Nicki only), weekly art studio classes (both), Girl Scouts (both), Indian Princesses (both), and…oh my this list is long….is that why my life is crazy?….and weekly private swimming lessons (both). Ah well. It’s all good…it really is…and they are just simply delightful wonderful sweet caring awesome little girls. Have I ever mentioned how lucky I think we are?
So….a few pics this afternoon though you’d think I’d have a lot more since it’s been so long since I’ve posted. The issue is that I’ve been using my BB camera-phone and #1) hassle to get them off and # 2) pics are awful…..duh- I need to stop doing that and use my ‘real’ camera. I’m thinking this springtime business will get me back in gear here.
Sammi on left, Nicki on right
Fuzzy but a full family picture for once!!
Nicki-Noodle—see the lovely haircut?
And look at Sammer’s short cut…! :)
They love-love-love to cook….
Soccer-Sammi…she is WILD about playing. I resisted for so long because I personally cannot stand soccer but…..I relented and…..I am kinda sorta enjoying the chatting with the Moms on the sidelines and watching Sammi have a blast…
One of the girls’ best friends (K-K) plays, too….
Sammi at the art table looking at ‘masterpieces’ on the IPAD and doing her best to copy them. She is such an incredible amazing phenom (ok, I’ll stop but gosh) artist for her age. I’ll post some of her work soon.
And then NIcki-Noodle with our beloved dog, Buddy.
All for now. Got to go get the girls off the bus!! (yes, I am now home to greet the bus everyday!…Whole post in itself).
