district-wide concert

Jane and a few of her friends volunteered to learn to sing some extra songs and participate in a district-wide concert at the high school. It was fun to see all the different ages of students singing!

lego contest

The kids entered the lego contest again this year. Jane did a beach scene and Malcolm made a guy holding ice cream!

The prize was a coupon for a free slushie (which are gross), so Dad had them trade them in for homemade chocolate ice cream instead!

new nest!

Some birds built a nest outside our house again, but this year it's orioles!

mother's day 2018

We headed up to Manchester, New Hampshire for mother's day. Our first stop was the SEE Science Center housed in an old mill building.

They have a minifigure-scaled model of the old mill, built with 3 million legos!

We went out for lunch, then to the Currier Art Museum. Jane made blondies with chocolate chips for dessert!

cat cuddles

Westie was in a cozy mood the other day!

planting time

Jane came with me to pick out plants and she convinced me to buy her a tiny aloe plant.

lego robotics

Malcolm got a chance to try out a lego WeDo 2.0 kit at the library. He loved it! He built a robot and programmed it to move in different ways.
