First Harvest of 2014!

2 Jaune Flamme tomatoes
Handful of Green Arrow peas

Jaune Flamme tomatoes are an orange heirloom from France. They are about 4 oz, salad size, sweet with a bit of a zing. Pretty tasty!

I had apparently not published this post, sorry about that! Scroll down for 4th of July!

Connor's finished with his first soccer season! We hope to do the fall season!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

We had our friends, Dan and Jane, over today to celebrate the 4th. We did burgers and brats on the grill, my dill potato salad and other goodies, including a chocolate eclair "cake". The chickens got some watermelon that disappeared quickly.

Jon and Dan did some fireworks. Usually we can see big ones from here, but no one seemed to be doing any this year. We hear lots of booming, but none up in the air. Connor did his first sparklers. I was thrilled to find out they don't burn you anymore!

Pre-K Graduation!

Yes, I know. I haven't updated in a long time. So again, you'll get a bunch of updates at once! Lucky you!

Connor has graduated Pre-Kindergarten!

It was a really cute program. They sang lots of songs. The teachers brought up each student individually and gave them a "quality" and said something about them. Connor's was Curiousity because he kept his teacher on her toes with all of his questions. And... "When Connor grows up, he wants to be a horse trainer." !!!

5th Birthday!

Connor celebrated his 5th birthday on Easter this year! I figured it out and he will have an Easter birthday for his 16th, 78th and 89th. I can't picture him at 16, let alone 89!

We had a small dinosaur themed family party on Saturday.

2 layer cake, Funfetti and chocolate

Connor helped decorate

Easter, he was so excited to do an Easter egg hunt on his birthday! I was happy it was nice weather.

I loved his cake! Easter M&Ms, Peeps, chocolate cake

The Easter bunny left a message on the driveway.

And fun goodies in his basket!

Connor brought home a new friend on Wednesday. Max is the Pre-K class monkey. He goes back to school tomorrow. Max came with a diary that we had to fill out. We had to take him everywhere with his. He went out to eat, grocery shopping, to soccer practice and outside to play.
