Rachel ended her year of ballet this week with a recital. Michael went and took videos for those of us who stayed home. I was quite impressed with all they've learned and the dance they put on at the end.
And, of course I have to include more pictures of Laura. She's definitely the most popular subject matter for photos just now. :)
The weather has taken a turn for the worse here and it's a jeans and sweater kind of day. I need to get out and Miracle Gro my garden, so that there will be hope of actually getting some produce! The peas are looking quite nice and I must get a trellis up for them to climb. I'm hoping to go to the plant store next week.
We have only four more days of school left!!! The kids were good sports and plowed through school while I was in the hospital, despite my having promised that we could take a week off. In return, I've decided on a class party for the last day of school -- since we don't ever do that kind of thing. It will include cupcakes and a measured amount of candy as well as a special project to work on.
A very big thanks to all my friends who have so kindly brought meals to us these past weeks. Wow! We have enjoyed so many delicious foods and it has been very nice not to have to worry about dinner. The kids have enjoyed it too and like to ask "Who made this?".
Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. I hope you have a special weekend. Laura and I are looking forward to hopefully making it to church this week and spending time with family.
