Spring has sprung!! There will surely be more flower pictures to follow and herb pictures and hopefully veggie pictures! But this humble pot was our first attempt at spring! :) Last year I put so much in the pot that it all grew big and was quite crowded. So this year I left some room. :) I LOVE spring!
Rachel had her piano recital last week. Her teacher gave each student a bouquet of flowers. That is so sweet I think!! Rachel has only taken lessons for a few months but she really loves the piano and has picked it up quite quickly! She has a great ear, but I am trying to handicap her a little and not let her use it! I want her to learn to read music. You know, sometimes in those beginner books they take out the sincopation (sp?) in a song to make it all even quarter notes. Time and again I will hear her correct the rythym if she knows the song. So I try to make sure she has music to play that she has never heard!! She has also been known to change endings and throw notes in to complete the chord. I am not sure how she knows how to do all that so I just sit back amazed and then say, "Okay now try it the way it is written!" HAHA!
Summer is in full swing and everyone is getting used to the new schedule. They are getting used to me limiting screen time, used to reading every day, used to the new chore schedule. Phew! The transitions can surely be the hardest then we all settle in. Just about the time I am tempted to give up, everyone comes around!
I have been having so much fun knitting that I need to discipline myself to get moving on the T2CHK Quilt Square swap. So if you all don't see me posting a pic of my square in the next week, feel free to reprimand me!! Have a great day!!
