Wordless Wednesday



I know it's supposed to be wordless but let's just say that the girls learn early where Ms. Tracey keeps the good stuff! (Yes, she opened the drawer by herself and dug through to find the Oreos!)

Dance Recital

Ladybug has recital over the weekend, making last week crazy busy.  She was so upset on Saturday when I told her that it was the last night, I think she would be on stage everyday if she had the opportunity.

Waiting to go on.

Front and center (she takes after her mom)

Ready to go (Friday night)

With her class

I had the privilege of being a stage mom on Friday night and loved watching from back stage!  It brought back all the excitement and nervousness of recital night (I was a little sad to not be joining her on stage).  We are considering starting Butterbean in the fall but aren't sure if she'll really be ready.

Garden Stuff

With the warm weather starting so early here, or the winter weather never coming, we have been busy outside.  Chris expanded our garden by adding a 4 x 8 raised bed to go with the two 4 x4 beds from last year.  He also added a slant support for the cucumber to climb (if they ever get that far).
I think we at the point now to just enjoy the yard insead of working every weekend!


For Ladybug we planted a blueberry bush in a large container on the deck.


Here's the slant support Chris built, you can barely see the cucumbers (we started from seed this year).  Under the support there is lettuce that is growing nicely.  The first row is sweet and hot peppers, we are going to try our hand at canning our own salad peppers this year.


This bed has yellow squash in the first row, zucchini in the second and then a row of and heirloom type tomato.  That empty row is waiting for our Roma and Cherry tomoatoes to get big enough to transplant.


Ladybug and I attended a kids workshop over the weekend and she built this little planter box (almost) buy herself!  We planted some Forget me not seed I got from work.


These are the tomatoes (and some Basil seeds) that are almost ready to be moved.

What you don't see is the new bed Chris built since that's our 'trial' planter this year.  We put some corn, watermelon and cantaloupe seed in and are hoping for the best!
