We went to the Tulip Farm with the Montee's while they were here in April. I didn't want to post any pictures back then because some of the picture were being used as a gift and I didn't want to ruin the surprise. I could literally post dozens of pictures but I will control myself and only post a few more...

Noah left his door open the other night so that Buddy could sleep with him. The plan, obviously, worked. Can you believe that the school year is almost over. Just a few more weeks and we will be into our summer vacation. He has had a great first Kindergarten year and we lucked out with an incredible teacher.
Oliver just happy to be outside and playing. He has really started to talk lately. Everyday it's a new word. He is also over exaggerating his no-no's and uh-oh's lately - it's a full body experience. He is even starting to put two word sentences together: want up, want out, hi ackon (that's Jackson), etc. It won't be long and he will be chatting away. He's also started to show an interest in picking out his own pajamas at night. I have most of his pj's hanging in his closet, after his bath we will go grab a diaper and then his pj's. If I pick the wrong pair he gets very upset, takes them from my hand and throws them back into the closet. He then picks the "correct" pair for the evening. This is a great way to learn that it's time to clean out the pairs that are too small. I had to force him into a pair that he'd outgrown the other night, those are now in the donation pile. Both of our boys are growing up fast.

Could a more beautiful garden
For mothers ever be,
Than her children happy and healthy
Sprouting upright and free.
Each bearing in turn their own good fruit
To honor posterity?
Could there be a more important garden
For a mother's eyes to see
Than the human flowers she nourished
And guided so faithfully?
Her blossoms could well be called "God's thoughts"
Since love lives eternally.
Could a more glorious garden
For mothers ever grow
Than the one her heart has planted
In a straight and weedless row
The garden her soul has prayed for
And asked her God to know?
I got to enjoy a Mother's Day Party today at Noah's school. They sang for us, did sign language for us, had treats out and gave us gifts. Noah not only had his mom in class with him today but also his Gammy. Mrs. Kutch is a wonderful teacher! Noah loves her and I love what she has done for all of her classroom kids.

Despite the efforts of the other birds in the neighborhood our little birdie is the only one that has set up home in our tree. Cute as a chickadee, proud like a robin and as noisy as a jaybird! He even has his own song that is very distinct and easy to pick out from the other bird melodies.
