Week 16 (April 13th-April 19th): Dancing Queen

Posted on

Caroline has wanted us to sign her up for dance classes since, well, forever. During school vacation week, she had a chance to try out a class with her Daisy group. To say she had a great time would be an understatement. Years ago, we told her we would discuss dance class when she is six. She’s never forgotten that we said that–which means we have less than three months until decision time. Hmmm, she did look awful happy that day.

I think she had the time of her life.

Hey Mr. Driver Man. don’t be late…

This little boy can't wait wait for his sis to get home from school.

I might be in denial that next year I will be at the bus stop alone. I just can’t believe that this little guy is starting kindergarten in September.

Week 14 (March 30th-April 5th): Boston Beginnings

Posted on

I spent a few nights in Boston. Alone. And it was lovely. But not as lovely as this scene that I captured while on an early morning walk.

Boston in the morning

Boston in the morning

The sea returning day by day
Restores the world-wide mart.
So let each dweller on the Bay
Fold Boston in his heart
Till these echoes be choked with snows
Or over the town blue ocean flows.

Week 13 (March 23rd-29th): Here Birdie, Birdie, Birdie

Posted on

With spring on it’s way (yes, it’s taking its sweet time getting here!) the kids are impatiently waiting for the pool to open. They’ve got a few months to go before we even think about taking the cover off. That’s good news for this little feathery friend. He stops by for drink every day, often multiple times a day. I think when we do finally get around to opening the pool I just might have to invest in a birdbath for this little fellow.
