More Spring Discoveries


While I claim to have many “favorite” spring flowers, it is always exciting when I find Hepaticas.  We can not always find the flowers, but this year we found them in a few places.

I do not know the real name for what I call “May roses”. My parents always had a plant or two and called them May roses. It is fun to see how close to May it is when they first bloom.

Unfortunately, the spring wild flower season seems to be ending already. It seemed like a short year for them even though we found more types than usual.


Don’t Let Pink Number 7 Get the Ball!

Megan has been enjoying soccer a lot this year.  Not only is Audrey a fun coach who teaches the girls a lot, Megan has a lot of friendly girls on her team that she is becoming friends with.

Monday was an especially fun game for her.  She made the very first goal…then the second and the third.  She tried hard to assist some of the other girls to make goals.  We started saying, “don’t let pink number 7 get the ball!”  Megan would give us a dirty look before enjoying the game again. A few balls come straight at Megan and it would have been silly not to try to make a goal, which she did successfully.

By the end of the game, Megan had made at least 5 goals and three other girls made at least one goal each.  A few of the girls made some great almost goals.

This could turn into a very dangerous team!
