I love those flowers!
We can tell it's springtime here by the sound of running water, but there's still too much snow to go into our backyard. We get stuck waist-deep, you see.

March break is over! I'm back to making school lunches, boo hiss!

I hear you on the lunch thing, This morning I had to set my alarm for 6:00--brutal awakening to reality.

So lovely!
I have to make a fairy house with B, who is absolutely fascinated by all things fairy.
I've been using seasonal crafts made at kindergarten to adorn the insides of our two entry doors (from the garage and the front door, both painted metal doors). It's a nice way to keep them off the floor and to appreciate them during the appropriate time (while quietly switching them out when the time is right).

This week is cloudy and rainy, I'm so grateful that we had a few beautiful spring days before the coming of a dreary, muddy Nebraska spring week.

I love hanging up T.'s artwork all over the kitchen--it keeps a smile on my face all day long!

I have to chuckle, because every time I have a break or respite, I have these grand ideas of what I will accomplish. I am glad I am not the only one who seldom accomplishes anything but just enjoying the time.

The flowers are beautiful!!

The problem is that all the things on my list don't disappear, they just get juggled around!

It's still standing! We'll see if the rain we're going to get today will do any damage...
