We've embraced this crazy spring, because all of this is definitely happening over a month early:
And, since all of that was happening. I decided to be very brave and plant half our garden. Kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and sweet corn all in! (1158) I also went ahead and planted zinnias and sunflowers too!
Did I mention that our neighbors gave us the
raised flower beds graves at the end of our garden, so that we have even more room to plant things? (1159).
The girls love to help their mama garden! (1160) They get their buckets and shovels, and haul rocks up and down the hill----it's serious business! They'll do this for a good 45 minutes. (1161)
They used those same buckets for an Easter egg hunt this past weekend. (1162)
The girls got sunglasses over the weekend. (1163). I love how kids with sunglasses look like they have attitude--cracks me up! (1164)
The girls also recently got new shoes, which they love, (1165) and Mama loves that you can just throw them in the washing machine! (1166)
Scrapes and bruises on little toddler legs---signs of being active and adventurous outside. (1167)
The girls have been mastering puzzles that I'd thought were too old for them (1168)---one in particular has helped them to recognize really obscure shapes like the quatrefoil and parallelogram. (1169)
We've really had a language explosion around here! The girls are saying all kinds of things. Probably my favorite new word of theirs is funky. (1170).
Every night, a-la Goodnight Moon, we say goodnight to everything in the changing room. There are two cork boards in that room, with a cork that says:
The girls point at the cork, and say goodnight to funky every night--hilarious! (1171)
Brad and I went out on dates---that's right, plural--twice last week. It felt good to get out of my yoga pants, and spend time with friends. (1172)
I enjoyed thinking about my core values this week, and getting some things written down.
We've had a rough week with teething, especially Hadley. I laughed as I read another person's core values one of them read, "I believe that teething is a major baby design flaw." (1173)
Linking with Ann.
