Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, Last week, I was one of the artist-in-residence at Ry's school. I did a watercolor photo project with the first-graders, incorporating the Dr. Seuss book "My Many Colored Days." It was an incredible experience. It ended with a wonderful Art Walk the school hosted, showcasing all the students' artwork in the halls. Truly an inspiring event. We continue to juggle sports and school; just 7 days left for Covey with preschool, and a few weeks left for Ry. Definitely bittersweet- we're anxious for summer, but hard to believe I'll soon have a kindergartener and second-grader. Wow. It is moving fast. Life is good. xo
Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, It's been a whirlwind, juggling Ry's activities. How a seven year old ended up with so many sports, I'm not sure...okay, I am sure, but just have to get through a couple weeks of craziness and then we're back to one a week. Somehow his soccer, baseball and dance recital are all overlapping. So six days a week for two weeks, we're doing the shuffle- and he's not exhausted. I'm convinced he cannot run out of energy. It's been really fun to watch him come into his own with his sports this year, he seems so small to be able to throw and catch a baseball, or make a soccer goal. Yet he's not...Life is good. xo
Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, EllaGrace is '2'!! How'd that happen?!?! We had a wonderful birthday party the day before her birthday- spending the Sunday with family and friends. The weather was amazing, sunshine and blue skies. The kids ran, and ran and ran. It was perfect. Her birthday was spent with us five, enjoying a few rounds of happy birthday and cupcakes. Life is good. xo.
Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, We dyed our first batch of Easter Eggs last weekend- the top row is duck & the bottom row is chicken (a mixture of green and brown eggs). They turned out so vibrant, we've been squealing with excitement over it. Spring continues to fill the air- my car said 54 degrees today. That may be a stretch from reality, but it sure did feel good. Our short break from sports came to end tonight, with the start of soccer season. Another sign of spring. Life is good. xo
Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, We celebrated our niece/cousin's first birthday on Sunday; what a beautiful day it was! We took the kids to the park for an afternoon break, while Evie napped. In a short 10 days we'll be celebrating Ella's 2nd birthday. Life is good. xo
Wish You Were Here ...virtual postcards from around the world Dear Friends, Spring is springing- consecutive days of sunshine; freshly picked pussywillows; the close of Spring Break; lots of hours outside; life is good.xo
