We ordered 6 cubic yards of mulch and we spread it out after church.
We found this toad.
Beza helped by cleaning up the yard.
Skateboarding (with a helmet, knee pads and wrist guards).
Dirty hand prints on the wall at the end of the day.

He makes schoolwork look so comfortable.

M made two kinds of cookies. (They looked delicious but I couldn't touch them while doing a Whole30.)
The chokecherry was in bloom.
This year we started working through the MAPS Activity Book that goes along with the MAPS book--it is one of our favorite things to do.

The sun was finally almost shining so I snapped a picture of it.
A few weeks earlier I tried re-potting my Oxalis but the original soil was really waterlogged and gross and all but four of the stems broke off. I planted the roots anyway and it was springing back to life before our very eyes.
M made two delicious-looking cakes. (Again, I couldn't even taste them. As a matter of fact, I had to request that she stop making treats for the last two weeks of the re-set. Poor girl. But it was torture walking past those sweets all day long.)
Soccer practice skateboarding.

I discovered Barnana--a great snack option while doing a Whole30. (Or anytime, really.)
T is such a good sport. This is what shopping with the girls sometimes looks like. Haha.

Our friends dropped off a delicious edible arrangement the night before. (Funny story--literally as they were walking up to our house to deliver it, it was dark out and J closed the garage door almost on them because he didn't see them. Then I think they either rang the doorbell--that's often disconnected--or knocked and we didn't hear them there at all. Basically we were crazy rude. She had to text me to get my attention. ;) )
M thought that it would be fun to get a harness for Dave so that he could go outside on a leash. (What a far cry from his early days with us.) It went okay for a short while before he Houdini-ed out of the harness.
All of those buds mean that it's about to get really green. (Sunset.)
