Paris surprised me with this beautiful centerpiece made from our hydrangeas and not yet ripe apricots.


We ended the day with a lego-athon.

First "project" of the summer.


Paris and Alex spent over an hour "carpeting" our kitchen and living room with placemats this morning.

Today Paris had a sneak peak of kindergarten. We also had a volcanic eruption at our house!



Today was like a trial run of kindergarten. I thought it was an open house for the parents also, but when we arrived, the kids went into the classroom and the parents were told to wait outside. I was surprised, but Paris didn't seem to mind.

We recreated Paris' preschool volcanic eruption project at home.
