We didn't even fill this......
We have been waiting for a half decent day to go strawberry picking....but I think we were a bit early...we found lots of itty bitty strawberries.....I think we'll try another farm next week....the kids had so much fun!

And flowers for our ballerina.
Because I am her mama I can say that she was amazing!!! She is truly a natural at dancing and I am in complete awe that at age 3 she was completely confident in front of hundreds of people! I only wish that I can nurture this amazing talent and support her in whatever will make her heart warm and her soul happy. She is the kind of kid who does everything with such an amazing spirit...she is up for trying anything and usually does very well....a true natural.(I, on the other hand, had to always work twice as hard as everyone and I was always good...not great.) I am a very proud mama.

A peek at Caroline's costume for her ballet recital. I must admit that I am a bit anxious....my 3 year old will be in front of a couple hundred people for her first show on Sunday....and the teacher has put her in the front row of her class!! She is a bit unpredictable (aren't all 3 year olds) and the show is no longer than 10 minutes...... will she pick her nose? will she forget to dance and wave at everyone? will her "attitude" make an appearance? My husband and I have both been brought up participating in sports....so this is way out of our element.....my only advice to Caroline is smile and dance and please listen to Ms. Judy.
To Be Continued...............

When it started to thunder we headed inside.....and Caroline had fun dressing up.
Cooper took his naps when he could...which was in the car going from one place to another.....this left us with a very cranky boy on Sunday when it all caught up to him.
Construction update: No action today.
Words are not enough to tell you how much we love you!!!! You are the best dad, daddy, daddio in the world......thank you for taking such good care of all of us....always having a smile when you come home......swinging on the swingset......reading lots of books......taking walks......and loving us unconditionally!!!!!
love, caroline and cooper

Construction update: The foundation was approved by the inspector but there hasn't been any action all week. The next step is to backfill the mounds of dirt and rebuild the foundation on the side of the house where the screened-in porch will be. Meanwhile, Rob and I are busy picking out windows and doors.....so many choices!!!!!

Two pictures to share this morning.....Because Caroline wakes up with the sun she keeps busy in her room for as long as she can stand it before she hops in bed with me....she makes her bed, puts her books away, makes a visit to the bathroom and gets dressed...I just love going in her room and seeing all of "her friends" neatly placed in a row.
The second picture is from our trip to Boston on Sunday...it was a great change of scenery for us. Caroline loves going to the city!!! We rode on the duck boats, had $4 hotdogs, played on the playground in the Boston Common, checked out Uncle Brian's new condo, and picked up cannoli's at Mike's in the North End (we shared those with the neighbors when we got home).
