I just love spring in Colorado, don't you?

We have 4 weeks left of school until the kids are out for the summer - I keep telling them we can do this, 4 more weeks.  (I can do this, right?)  Today one of my daughters said 'Mom are you just joking about that because it's snowing again so it can't be summer in 4 weeks!'  I'm hoping for the best.

I have always wanted photos of my children with snowflakes swirling around them.  Did you know that it is actually extremely difficult to get moving children and falling snowflakes all together in a photo?   Well, it is.   And the effect is somewhat diminished by the fact that there is green grass and a blossoming tree behind the snowflakes.

I really want to start getting my seedlings outdoors so I can get them in the garden and flower beds soon. I guess that really will have to wait until after mothers day.  

I'm dreaming of a relaxing weekend.  Some dreams are never realized.

this day we sailed on....  barely....


  1. I hear you on the ...barely... part! Hang in there. I keep saying the same thing about surviving the school year. I'm so excited. And your seedlings look great. Wish we'd started some... way to go! xo

  2. so impressed you did your own seedlings!!!! sorry about the snow.
