School's out for summer . . . sorta

    May is almost over and it was a whirlwind of activities. Poodaloo is out of school as of Friday. Panda is very unhappy about the situation (i.e. she has school and sister does not). I'm in shock, thinking there was one more week before Poodaloo is out.

     Golden parenting moments are when you are part of an experience that positively thrills your kids. And, it didn't cost anything, you didn't have to drive anywhere or make snacks. These were those kind of moments, a mirror, a fan and imagination.

Look! I'm praying with one hand.

I'm a mirror image of myself!
Making your voice sound weird by talking into the fan.
     May brings flowers (and showers) to the yard. Panda and a neighbor girl helped weather seal the new elevated garden bed. It is the herb garden and so beautiful. Then there is the new planter (which formerly resided in our purple bathroom).

Yes, those are snow boots on her feet.

Sprinklers are irresistable. The far raised bed looks very lush. Unfortunately, it is  an outstanding crop of weeds. Ugh!

This looks even cuter as the plants grow & grow.

Elevated herb garden.

Out-of-this-world gorgeous clematis.
     This past weekend, Baba and I had an unexpected opportunity. Panda went camping with her friend J. Poodaloo spent the weekend with J-Bear (triple sleepover). While the kids were away, the parents played and rested and did any thing we wanted. It was the longest time we have been kid-free since we became parents. What a concept ~ must do this again (and again and again)!

  1. Lots of lovely flower pics. Love your clematis, hoping mine looks that good. I'm just glad mine is blooming and starting to creep and crawl. Such a beautiful plant! I love the flowers in the toilet. Your yard is looking good. McCall was fun!
