A brief glimpse of Spring

Grace just hangin' out.

Playing 'follow the leader.' He follows Grace pretty much everywhere.

Grace on a bridge that's in a park in our town.

Exactly a week ago today Spring arrived very briefly and it got up into the 60's. I let Grace and Will go without jackets which they loved and we went to 2 different parks last Friday afternoon to play. Winter is back this week, it's snowed once and has been very cold....such is the nature of Wisconsin. I know Spring will be back...hoping sooner than later.
This week Grace is the 'Star Student' for her class and today she dressed in one of her pretty red traditional Chinese dresses and wore it to school. I'm going in to speak to her Kindergarten class about Grace's birth country of China and a little bit about adoption...she is very excited.
This weekend will be another busy one for us with our regular activities plus these 2 will be getting their pictures taken by a professional photographer and also be going to another friend's birthday party. Have a great one!

I love these pictures of the kids...sooo sweet! Congrats to Grace on being star student. I'll be anxious to hear how your presentation goes...soo special!

Now why are you going out and getting these babies pics taken professionally, when you are a professional yourself? Girl, your pics rock!!!

Perspective! It's been in the 60s and 50s here and we are breaking out the coats!! LOL

Glad you were able to enjoy some "spring-like" weather with your two treasures -the pictures are precious as always!

I'm sure you have something fun and creative to share with the Kindy class!

We had a little spring here last week as well....wasn't it wonderful?! However, I now have one child with poison ivy because he enjoyed it so much! :)

Your pics are amazing. I love the last one of Grace on the bridge and the one of the purple flower is really nice too. Looks like the kids are really having fun together now.
