Our sweet Sophie has graduated from preschool! She has been attending a community preschool for a couple of hours a week for two years. This fall she will begin kindergarten! Sophie has loved everything about preschool. She is already sad that it is over!
These photos are from Track and Field Day and the end-of-the-year preschool picnic. Calvin discovered a fine culinary treat called cheese balls at the picnic. He kept going back to the buffet and grabbing handfuls of them!
Oh the gardens are just gorgeous! My peony which I got last year as a tiny twig from someones yard is blooming like crazy! Most of my clematis survived the winter and several are in bloom and climbing the back deck. The aliums, though smaller than last year are a beautiful globe of purple. Some of the perennials have gone crazy and need to be divided. It is supposed to rain for the next four days so I need to get that done!

The following night he was in the first grade music program at Red Pine. There are 175 first graders at likes toRed Pine and how this music teacher got them all to sing and do choreography is beyond me. I am lucky if I can get Max and Sophie to make their beds! The whole family was able to come and watch though there were no seats available so we had to stand on the side. Calvin thought the whole thing was a bit loud at times! They sang 14 songs!!
The garden has been rewarding us with beautiful color - even with the late frost. The rabbits had a great time eating many of the young tulips down to the ground, but we still have many that actually bloomed this year. Last year I planted 10 tulips in the back under the trees and the rabbits left me 4. This past fall I added another 50 and we have a bunch of blooms this year. My biggest frustration with spring is my lack of gardening skills. I cannot remember what I planted and where - which makes weeding rather difficult to manage.
