More biking

Riding bikes with TT is always an adventure. He has a wonderful eye for detail and often stops to pick up "treasures" along the way. A few days ago, he found a small blue egg.

Last Days of School

This week there were only 3 days of school. Now, I am officially the mother of a 4th and 6th grader.
On Monday, the kids performed in their school musical, "The Granny Awards." S was Granny and TT was Jack (as in Jack and Jill.) I love that our school does a musical every year, it is one of the many things I value about our school.

Tuesday was the 5th grade graduation. I cried just a little bit.

NAGA Dallas

We spent the weekend in Dallas, Texas at a NAGA tournament. TT has been training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for the last few months and we felt he was ready to test his skills. He fought a total of three times in two divisions. He came in third place in the gi competition for his weight. The medal is huge and shiny.
We are so proud of his hard work. He has the heart and intelligence of a warrior.

River Fest

Oh, how I love my bike.

Saturday, I rode the 5.5 miles from my house to Panera for breakfast with my knitting friends. Then,Lanora and I headed out to the farmer's market. Douglas was closed for the River Run; it was so fun to ride down the middle of the street ringing our bicycle bells.

Tuesday, I rode over to the Garden Gala at Botanica. This is one of the River Festival events I look forward to every year. The gardens are beautiful and calming.

Just a couple of happy pictures for you. I only have two days of student teaching left and I will be walking at graduation on Saturday, May 15th at 11am. I am very excited to be finished and wearing my cap and gown - proudly.

I found this wonderful vintage Columbine plant on a hike, last week. I am thinking it will be a wonderful inspiration for a crochet blanket. I love the yellow middle, the five white petals and the five lilac petals.
