My Snapshots

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:


   
Wheeeeeeee.....

So many exciting things we've been up to this past month! So many places we've been...like the bedroom...the living room...the kitchen...the porch...the backyard...

Here are some of our more thrilling moments:

She's taken up reading while swinging in the backyard...

She set up a race course for us to tackle using survey flags...

We managed to (for all of five minutes) throw on real clothes and take our annual Easter family photo (Gv's in one of my old Easter dresses!)

We finally got around to giving the dog a bath, which we'd been saying we needed to do since the beginning of the year (!)

...and Zoom has become this girl's new best friend. Mainly because it's allowed her to talk more often to her actual best friend. (Here she is putting on a puppet show for him using stick puppets she made from her Lunchtime Doodles with Mo sessions.)

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?

What were your favorite memories from this past month?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.

The library had a special event for Dr. Seuss's birthday and we were the only ones who showed up! They did a nice job and had several different STEAM stations set up for the kids:



Our friends who moved a few towns away make the drive up to us once a month for our nearby preserve's special homeschool program. One of the best parts of the day is taking a hike to our "friend tree." 



It was a bonus month for friends when another family that moved away (although these friends headed to another part of the country!) came into town and we were able to reunite our playgroup, just before learning days later that we'd all have to stay in our homes for an indefinite period of time.





And then, life changed. Suddenly, everything was cancelled and we were stuck at home, which my hermit-self loved, but pretty much every day after that looked like this:


or this:

What have we been up to this past month? Take a look and see:


   
Gv was old enough to enter the State Fair this year and was in four events! She went the first weekend with the cousins and had a blast, then went the next weekend with us and Grammy & Papa and had another blast, although I would guess the trip with the cousins was the most fun:


A double-dog corndog!

It's corny, but she loved this part!

Earlier in the month, Gv was excited to discover she had a loose tooth. She wondered how long it would take to fall out. When I examined it, I discovered 3 were actually loose, maybe even 4.

One morning, she woke up with the first one missing (we found it!) and then, the next day, she lost the second one!


The top & bottom of the same spot - at least she's still symmetrical!

It was time again for us to head to an art museum a few towns over that puts on a great homeschool program. Even though it's so good, we probably wouldn't make the drive if we didn't get to spend the day with our good friends that moved.


After the art, the kids have fun playing on this giant Banyan tree on the grounds!

And that pretty much wrapped up our month! I wonder what wonderful memories next month will bring?
