Just some random photos…

ImageWhat happens when you forget about 4 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar simmering on the stove top.

Boo. 

Lost the hummingbird food for the feeder AND the pot.

Didn’t have enough elbow grease to get all the burnt out.

Also, your neighbors LOVE you when you fill their apartments above you with smoky burnt sugar water smoke.

Awesome all around!!

ImageFront of our apartment about a month ago. 

Nice right? 

Nice and noisy!

ImageThey were rebuilding the stairs and walkways so the 2nd and 3rd floor buddies had to move out for a couple of weeks. 

Too bad I didn’t smoke out the place while they were away.

Earth Day and Mother’s Day

ImageMaya’s class planted Lupins for Earth Day and described how they could help the earth. Maya’s is directly below the Orange sign.

Image

ImageSuch a proud, proud mama when I see how she processes the information we discuss. She says, ‘let the cows go in the fields and do not keep them in pens and feed corn to the cows that should be out in the fields. That is her way of presenting factory farming vs. sustanaible farming. Oh that sweet little girl.

ImageOne of my mother’s day notes from Maya.

ImageOne from O! Love that Maya is flying the plane! And then I’m being guarded by the army in my US diesel truck.

Soccer practice

ImageWe finally had a dry practice last week. Most Thursday’s have been pouring rain so it was a lovely treat. It’s still like herding cats trying to get these girls to listen but Woody has an abnormal amount of patience so he’s a good 1st grade girls soccer coach.

ImageNice leap!!

ImageTwo of her buddies. They are twins.

Soccer Mom

ImageIt’s finally happened! I’m a soccer mom!

Yay.

We’ve dabbled in it a little bit in the past, a class here and there but this Spring we are full throttle.

Owen is on a team.

This is the best photo of his game yesterday:

ImagePlease note the absurdly tall grass. It’s been raining so much that the ground has been too wet to mow.

Looks like they squeezed in a quick mow on Friday but the grass is still way too long and they left all the cut grass right on the pitch. 

But the kids ran their hearts out and kicked right through it. 

I’ll have better photos next time.

I forgot my camera and took all these with my phone. But really the reason they aren’t great is because I find soccer, well, any sport my kids are playing, riveting. It is so fun to watch. So, I didn’t want to take too much time out from my cheering to take photos.

ImageThis is Maya’s team. She’s number 3. 

Woody is coaching her squad. It’s all her besties from 1st grade plus two sweet girls from another school.

Image

Image

Image

ImageMaya’s headband says “I bust mine so I can kick yours.”

She was pretty fierce yesterday, encouraging her buddies to get out there and do this thing. 

So, no mini-van but the back of the Leaf is filled with goals, multiple size 3 soccer balls, dirty cleats, orange cones and a nice shiny whistle. 

Go Westside Warriors (O) and Wavy Steelers (M)!!

Spring Blooms

ImageThe sun has gone back in hiding this week so it’s nice to look at these photos to be reminded of how lovely it is when it appears.

ImageAt our old house we had a family of ducks that lived in our front yard in the Spring. At our apartment we seem to have a pair of very friendly geese.

Image

ImageHope the blooms are blooming where you are.
