Happy Spring!

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, I have a little poll going on the site about where your kids are primarily learning things, be it public school, private, homeschool or other. I'm interested to see where my readers are coming from. :)

This weekend was Easter, of course, and along with the usual celebrations, we included a birthday party for Jade, who is now three years old. She had a surprise party last weekend at her grandparents house with that side of the family so yesterday was just our immediate family and Grammy. We had a lot of activity and between the Easter baskets, egg hunts, ham, birthday presents, and cupcakes, it was a very full day. It was also the most beautiful Easter day that I have in my memories. Here are a few shots...

And some more pictures from our weekend...

Did someone say there's CHOCOLATE in here?

Do I blend in with my new toy?

Birthday Girl Jade:

Rose had just settled in for a long winter's nap after her cousins left...

Is that a Transformers Easter basket?

Jade, being the 3rd child, has figured out interesting ways to claim things for herself. For example, when I served strawberries the other night, she decided to bite into each one to be sure they were *hers alone*.

Rose surprised me with a story after quiet time the other day...

Translated: Slow cat sat on a cat ladder (latr). Fly I said (fli i sed)
as I ran past Mom and Dad making dinner(macen denr).
Happy Birthday
I'm 5

It has such a poetic feel to it, doesn't it? She even asked if she could put it in her poetry journal. (The journal is a notebook that she started when our homeschool group decided to study poetry last summer.) I feel that larger stories are just around the corner. I can't wait to see where her imagination takes her!
