Cicada Party!

At the bus stop Monday morning, we shared that the cicadas had come out in full force in our yard. The kids went to school and we went about our day. At the end of the school day, the bus dropped the kids off on the corner of our street just as it does every day, and all of a sudden I started to hear people talking, and it sounded like they were right outside the front door. When I opened the door, this is what I found! There was a party in our front yard. The kids were fascinated with them and I think really the adults were too. Seems like so far, we are the house with the most of these gross bugs hatching on our street. Oh Joy! It is kinda neat to watch them come out of their shell on the tree, but not so much when they fly at you!!! The last picture here is one John apparently got of me while the party was going on, and he likes to call that my "Oh please" look.

The Golf Star!

We've spent many hours following Maison around the golf course! Golf is his thing. He asks to go almost every day after school. John took a picture at his tournament in April and the other is showing off his new hat...I just love that smile! We have lots of great pictures of Maison actually playing golf, so stay tuned for another post!

Kenzie and the Bonnet!

Today, Kenz has a field trip where they will visit a couple Civil War sites. They are supposed to dress up. We borrowed a dress from a friend in the neighborhood and I went about the process of making a bonnet to match. Here's Kenz in her outfit! I think she looks adorable!!!

Salt Map

Kenz had a school project to make a salt map of Tennessee. The first day it was assigned, she came home requesting supplies. For days she asked us when we would get her the large piece of card board she needed. She stayed on us until we had what she needed and then she finished it over a week before it was due! Kenzie did a wonderful job on it and seemed to enjoy getting to use her creativeness in the process. I love that she is loving school!
