Week 21 in Pictures

Another fun week!  I got to spend time with some girl friends during Craft Night and got a little of my Project Life book done ... we enjoyed Keira's spring concert ... Nick had his annual checkup and is growing like a weed - not that we needed a doctor to tell us that :) ... we planted more flowers ... we mowed more grass ... and we bought a new slip-n-slide to help the kids keep cool in our August-like weather.

School is almost out and the kids are counting down the days.  Alex has five days left, Keira and Nick have six.  (Alex goes to afternoon Kindergarten and since the last day is only a half day, he doesn't have to go - in case you were wondering.)  We're gearing up for Doug's work schedule to change ... and looking forward to it!  He will be steady daylight with most weekends off!  No more shift work!  Woo hoo!  We're also gearing up for our church's Vacation Bible School, which isn't until the end of June but will be here before we know it!

Anyway, let's take a look at last week's pics ...

Me getting silly for the Scavenger Hunt.

This pesky squirrel, among others, keeps getting into my bird feeder.  As much as I dislike it stealing my bird food, I do admire its technique.  :)

Keira's Spring concert was this evening.  The orchestra sounded great!  I had Keira pose for me outside after the concert since it was too dark inside to get any good photos.

Doug and Alex bought some yellow roses for me.  I sprinkled water on them and took pictures.  :)

The castle blocks I bought from Groupon finally arrived.  The boys, especially Alex, really enjoy playing with them.

~ Bob Fosse
Doug bought cherries because he insists that I wrote them on the grocery list.  I didn't, but I'm glad he bought them because they were really good!

We bought a new bubble machine and had some fun trying it out.  I was surprised at all the colors I was able to find in those bubbles!

One last thing ... my favorite photo from May ...
face your fears
I picked this one because it was something I wanted to do for a while but never got the chance.  And because I think it is fun!  :)
