Wow, the year seems to be passing very quickly! It's hard to believe my oldest has only two months left in his first year of school. And about this time next year, we'll be getting ready for kindergarten orientation with the younger one.

How's the weather in your area? Any plans for the month? Chat it up, folks! :)

The chillier spring weather is still having an effect, but lots of sun today brings the promise of warmer weather. Should be nice on the weekend, low to mid 70's. :)

This month isn't too busy for my family, just Mother's Day, Victoria Day (stat holiday) and my parents' birthdays.

Tim does have a birthday party to attend on Saturday, a classmate's tea party celebration for her 6th. I wonder how that will compare to the last party he attended, which was a pirate party (even though it was also a girl hosting).

We'll be off to soccer lessons soon. No teams or games to play against others, just practicing ball handling and getting used to having a coach. Both boys were in the same 6-week program last year, so it's a bit familiar even though the coach is different this time.

This has been a tough week. I am still recuperating from a cold/sinus/virus thing that is going around. My stomach is not too happy with me right now, so I am drinking some tea. While being sick is really a bummer, but I have enjoyed some serious reading time. Now I need to figure out what to read next. I think it may be time to go back to the Newpointe 911 series.

It rained here the first two days of the week, but today the sun was shining! So thankful for that. This month we will celebrate Mother's Day which is also my DIL to be's birthday. Hoping for warm weather, so we can open the pool. We have thought about getting a solar cover, but not totally sold on that yet. We usually open right before Memorial Day weekend.

Our baby chicks are now miniature chickens..they have grown so much that we will be using a dog crate for their new indoor home. We have one hen that loves to roost on the top of the box and that is with the sides taped up. She is something. Next year we will definitely only get four chicks....eight is a bit too much for me.

I also know what one of my Mother's Day gifts is going to be. We are getting a Great Pyrenees/Border Collie puppy. His name is Jake. We can't pick him up until the 11th. He is going to be our new homestead protector.
