Phoebe: no it’s cold outside, I don’t like to play outside when it’s cold.
Caleb: I like to play outside
Phoebe: well you’re tough
Caleb: You can pretend your tough and come outside to play.
Still some cooler weather intermingled with the warm. The cool seems even more offensive now that we are being tempted with the spring warmth.
I must admit, I’m slacking in the photo department, opting for the convenience of my camera phone rather than my big girl camera. I figure the shot will be gone by the time I grab my camera, and I have my phone handy. Like my justification? It’s working for David, so far….
Spring is slowly creeping in, and by that I mean we seem to be experiencing a pattern of a week of warm spring weather followed by a week of winter cold weather and then back to warm spring weather. It’s … Continue reading →
My birthday week: full of small celebrations, mommy time at a women’s conference hosted by our church, and a new job! To combat my sense of isolation in our new city, David handed me the church bulletin one sunday and … Continue reading →
A new week with lots of new things. Spring like weather is encouraging us that winter will soon be over.
We completed our curriculum and it’s always nice to have a fresh start with new units just about the time when the mid year doldrums sets in. Caleb has officially added to our mix, the themes of this unit were just too perfectly suited for his current interests. We’re taking advantage and diving in head first to get him used to the routine for next year when he will be official.
We celebrated my birthday early with a family membership the local botanical gardens near our home. It was a lovely day to pack a picnic lunch and explore the gardens before peak spring blooms attract large crowds. We plan to make it a frequent attraction and document the changes throughout the seasons.
A snowy Monday meant I had a chance to download the pictures from David and my phones from the various playgrounds. I had time to stay up to date on our journaling and memory keeping. I was starting to get … Continue reading →
I’m back to expand my skill set and keep learning this whole world of design and creating digital scrapbook elements for my Project Life style. I’m jumping on the blog train from Pixel Scrapper for March. This month’s theme was Country … Continue reading →
A crazy week of warm weather, teasing us that spring is near. We spent lots of time outdoors enjoying temperatures in the 60s topping out two days in the 70s. Long afternoon walks as a crazy lady with a stroller … Continue reading →
So after the stomach virus last week, this week we are off and rolling. New tiered cake pans from the thrift store meant we must experiment and test out the pans and a recipe before Micah’s birthday next week. Sleepy … Continue reading →
A simple mundane week topped off by a fast stomach virus infecting the kids. Thankfully it was gone as quickly as it came, but it made for a couple quiet days. Phoebe and I kept looking at each other and … Continue reading →
I’m slightly, well really crazy excited around here. Last week, as a snub to winter, we started our seeds in the greenhouse for a late winter/early spring garden. I’ve been watering/stalking them daily, and much to my joy I discovered these little gems this morning. Excuse the crappy phone pics, I was caught up in my excitement.
I know it’s not a true leaf, or even a seed leaf/cotyledon, but it’s definately emerging, and that means the countdown can officially begin.
The faith required to patiently anticipate the harvest when all you’ve done is put little seeds into the ground and given the water, is amazing.
So anywhere from 50-60 days we can anticipate beginning the harvest of kale, broccoli, cabbage, ect.
