Spring Gardening - Part 2

On Monday we spent several hours out in our garden. Some of the seeds we planted a few weeks ago did not sprout so we replaced them with plants. Now we have carrots, tomatoes, corn, cucumber, green beans, strawberries and watermelon well on their way! Paris, Alex and Mason planted (and fertilized) it all and loved every minute of it.




Even though the sun was out it was windy and chilly - the kids ended up cuddling up in the lid of the sand box for a long break.
They quickly got too scrunched and opted for larger accomodations.

Kindergarten Career Night

Tonight the kindergarteners (all 80 of them) had a career parade and music program. Each student picked a career, dressed the part then was introduced to the audience as that career person. There were doctors, lawyers, astronauts, dancers, scientists, firemen etc... Paris wanted to be a yoga instructor :) After their introductions, each person walked down a fancy, lit up runway in front of huge crowd of parents. It was really cute! Turn up your volume on the first video and you might be able to hear Paris' introduction by her teacher.

A few random photos from our exciting (not) Spring Break week.

We have had a low key week, since we celebrated our real Spring Break last week with the Acoba family. Today we had a picnic at the park.Here is Mason sporting his new birthday outfit from Omi. He was strutting around in it and knew he looked good :)
Thoroughly enjoying Mason's bubble machine - a totally fun birthday present from the Acobas!
A scrappy looking crew first thing in the morning.
