This week was filled with unexpected surprises. Some good some bad.
I unexpectedly ended up setting up the book fair for school. I also got some unexpected help from some wonderful teachers. And all it cost me was a plate of brownies. :)
Kira performed her piano piece at her piano recital. She hadn't practiced a whole lot so her great piece was a little unexpected. Great job Kira!
Day 66, 67, 68, 69
March 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th
For the second time in my life I unexpectedly caught strep throat. I didn't get out and about much so I took a picture of where I spent the majority of the four days mentioned.
An unexpected lunch date to my favorite Greek restaurant. They have the best Gyros I've EVER tasted.
Week Eleven: Spring Has Arrived
Spring colored paper at the book fair was taken down and the books all packed up and ready to go back to Scholastic.
Spring always brings with it the exciting St. Patrick's Day parade. We actually had two real floats this year. The girls' favorite were the horses, as always.
Finally something green in my garden instead of white!!!!!!!!!!
Warm spring sunshine allowed an afternoon of yard work to be done. I love to play in the dirt!
Emma found a new pet, diamond, the earthworm. But it somehow got lost so she had to look for it again. Naturally she had to take all the dirt out of the flowerbed to find it.
More signs of spring! We planted a new tree last summer. I was terrified that it hadn't survived the harsh winter, so I jumped for joy when I saw that there were buds popping out on our baby tree. I'm so proud.
Ok, so I didn't technically take this picture on St. Patrick's Day, But it was my favorite from the parade. And it felt festive enough to cheat. Is that ok?
