Spring and Bubbles


It used to be my favorite season when I taught because of the obvious reasons that summer vacation was fast approaching but also because I loved the chaos and fun that always came at the end of a school year.

Spring is still a season I love.  The prolific blooms allows even an amateur photographer like myself to take some nice pictures.

Not this one.... it's not so great.
I was just playing around and took it out my kitchen window.

We put that flower bed in the yard years ago to cover a manhole.
I wonder if MSD would ever find it if they needed to?

The cherry tree is the only one leafed out so far.  Of course I have to remind myself it is still only March.

This little tree out front has put on a show this spring.
It's ususally not this pretty.

Now that it is officially spring, we are playing outside more.

One thing we did this week was make bubbles outside.

These weren't just any bubbles though.

Some were almost as long as the driveway before they burst.

The kids took turns with the bubble wand.

Grace and Grant's biggest challenge was keeping them from popping on the driveway since they are so close to the ground themselves.

They managed to make some good ones too.

Grant and I worked on making some the next day as well.

He got pretty good at making BIG bubbles.


Of course, being Grant, he had way more fun popping the bubbles I made for him.

Happy Spring!
