Meanwhile, our tree looked like this for a couple days. Spring is good.
On Friday, Kev's parents babysat so we could go out and celebrate our ninth anniversary. We went to Calico in Rhinebeck and had excellent food, and I saw these shoes in a window of a shop that was closed. Aren't they awesome?! Orange sneakers. With LIFT!
On Saturday, Daphne colored Easter eggs with her cousins. Guess who made the one with the giant orange "D" on it?
Then we put on out Easter Best and went to New Paltz for Easter dinner with the Fowxes.
It was a really nice day. There was soccer...
...and marshmallow shooters, and food and dessert and lots of fun with aunts and uncles and cousins and friends.
On Easter morning, there were lots of treats and gifts, and a big egg hunt in the yard.
And finally a short visit with Nana before heading back home. Whew!
Monday, we hit the ground running. Even though there was an extra day off from school, Daphne and I went anyway for an event to welcome new students. Daphne was a "tour guide" and she was awesome. She guided people along, introducing them to the counselor and librarian, and showing them where various rooms are. Today, was piano and art, and finally back to school for Daphne. This afternoon is our Daisy meeting. The whole troop is coming to my house to make garden stones and plant seeds. It's going to be interesting.
My house is a DISASTER, but there's no time to clean. Maybe tomorrow. At least the Daisy meeting is outside.
My brother mistook some green rubbing alcohol for mouthwash yesterday! His tongue is numb, and I don't think he can taste food. I hope that goes away.
I need a nap, but I think I need to go start mixing cement soon. I never thought I would be typing such a thing.
