This week Tanner had a poetry recital. The whole class selected poems by Shel Silverstein, and he chose Warning, a poem about a sharp toothed snail that lives inside your nose and bites your finger if you stick it in. Given his poem topic, I found it amusing he wanted to pick up a shirt and tie for the recitation. He selected this lovely combo, wore it proudly (and a little sleepily) and did a great job of presenting his poem.

Spring soccer is in full swing, and this is Kaya’s first time playing. It is quite a sight seeing these little girls run around the field, and despite not scoring a single goal this season (well in their goal at any rate – they’ve added a few to other teams’ scoreboards), they seem to be having fun.

This was one of those weeks. You the know, the ones filled with kid faces hitting hard surfaces, shoes being ripped to shreds as laces get tangled in spin bike pedals, forgetting that box tops on the roof rack keep you from fitting into the garage, ear infections, allergic reaction to antibiotics…you get the gist. But, it ended nicely with an afternoon spent on the deck, the kids playing and the hints of summer in the air.

So, this past week I was away from the kids and visiting my family in Virginia, celebrating my sister’s growing belly and throwing her a baby shower. As such, my portrait for week 15 is of my sister her husband and her growing family. More shower photos to come, especially the maternity portraits and pictures of the handmade goodies.

It’s getting warmer, and T thinks its fun to run around without his shirt on. His sister wanted to join in on the fun, but I overheard him promptly telling her girls couldn’t run around without their shirts. After sometime I went to see what they were up to and found them like this…dancing in the backyard. They obviously came up with a solution, my latest finished knitting project was tied around her as a wrap…apparently her brother’s doing.
