April (Week 2)

A peek back at April: Part 2

Saturday, April 2
With J away for the weekend/week, we loaded up the car with some music (Slugs and Bugs) and a good audio book (Redwall) and headed to IKEA to update our play kitchen.

Then they spent the evening watching The Miracle Worker.

Sunday, April 3
We woke up to a snowy morning.

Monday, April 4
It snowed more this day than maybe any other day all winter. 4"?  Beza had a snow day so we snuggled down and watched all of the birds in the snow.
(A perfect view for reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.)


Tufted Titmouse (mice?).



House Finches. (In love?)


Squirrel!

Tuesday, April 5
It was a beautiful morning.

M and T started their new science/art class by dissecting owl pellets.  Then the three of us had dentist appointments.

The afternoon was filled with more birds.


Cardinal mohawk.


Wednesday, April 6
We bought some jellied candy in honor of Edmond's Turkish Delight.  (It's not even close, but we pretended anyway.)  We ate it while watching Samantha Brown's travels in Asia--somewhat tracking along with J.

Thursday, April 7
The morning brought torrential rains.

It was a day of dark grays contrasting with fresh whites and bright, new greens.

Friday, April 8
J came home!
With fun souvenirs for everyone. :)

We love it when we're all back together.
