If this was growing on my house I would die. Jim and I went for a walk and found this on our neighbors cabin. I wanted to knock it down before the bees returned but since it’s been warm and we’ve seen a bee here and there Jim thought just maybe it was slightly active and he wasn’t about to touch it.
Wilbur goes where ever I go and Jim and I took a cart ride last night and he went with. He sits on my legs and “looks out the front window”. No window, I know but there’s only two seats on our cart and he likes to sit in one but I’m not about to sit in the back so I sit down and tell him to look out the window.
An experiment. It’s only April and this is Minnesota and really we are suppose to have snow and cold still happening here but it’s not so I spent $1.78 on green pepper and tomato plants and put them into the containers up at the house. First I take home made tomato cages and wrap them in shrink wrap, I planted the little plants and watered them with warm water and covered them up. I know the black bags don’t let light in (these are lighter bags so some light but not lots), but they should keep them nice and warm and just maybe they’ll survive and thrive and produce sooner then September. We’ll see.
Found this cool idea for pussy willow prints. Just a brown marker and black ink pad and our finger. I loved how they turned out.
Joss and I made this while the girls got to use markers and ink. They just made from pipe cleaners and pom poms.
We did our eggs on Friday. Some white ones, some green and also brown but they all turned out beautiful. I love how the kids fingers look afterwards. We’ve done this now for 13 years and it never gets old. I love how they come up with colors and ideas.
Love how it takes two guys to put on one little girls shoes. Joss just hangs there while Scott puts them on and grandpa holds her.
Our Easter Egg hunt. Mike got home from work in time to hide them and then help them find them. Grandma and grandpa came for pizza and then the hunt.
One of our final group pictures with Mike.
Helping me bake cookies. I’m working on making healthier versions and Joss is my taste tester. I guess these were just fine.
I still teach Merit Badges for our local boy scout troop and one of the 10 I teach is Indian Lore. We have a great Indian museum just 40 minutes away from us so 4 adults and I took 17 scouts and they proceeded to learn some amazing information and games and more. This is one of my easier MB to teach because everything is contained at the museum except the Long House we’ll be making together at one of our upcoming meetings. Tomorrow night is one of our community services. For the past 10 years one of our elderly has a huge yard and we clean it up, plants some flowers and have a treat. It’s a great event and the kids learn to work together and why we do these things.
So there you have it, you’re caught up to date on my wee ones and what’s new and happening. There’s no school tomorrow and the kids and I are going to do a roadside pick up. We do this each spring and even though there’s just 4 wee ones and myself we’ll get it done. It’s a good learning experience and makes our part of the world a little cleaner.
Take care my friends and have a blessed evening. Happy Easter to you all!!
