Hello Spring!!

finally!

and the rain has finally stopped…and everything is so green!

as i read other blogs…i am amazed that everyone is already talking about summer…..but here in the Northeast we are still in Spring mode….slowly coming out of hibernation after a long winter.

kids are not out of school until June 20th here…i am savoring every minute till…you see…these are the last days that I have Cooper home with me….so bitter sweet…as he goes through Kindergarten orientation and is full of excitement….I am watching him grow up right before my eyes…….and the days of being home with my kiddos is coming to an end….I will be a basket case in August when i put them both on the bus.

springpaperwhite but for now… we are enjoying our mornings together….early morning walks in the yard to check out the flowers, walks to the coffee shop, running errands, baking, cleaning, laundry….he is right by my side at all times….being so helpful, asking a gazillion questions, singing silly songs..i can’t even imagine my mornings without him!

Beautiful pictures! Don't feel bad about your cold weather out here in California it has been pretty cold compared to usual so I'm just hoping we actually get a summer because last year are summer was quite cold and cloudy.

Hey Jess!
Your pics are beautiful, I only wish I could grow flowers as lovely, I have to stick to succulents lol.
Enjoy and cherish the last days before Cooper starts school, I know exactly where you are coming from. You will move to the next stage and adjust and find 'new' things to cherish together...I wish you loads of wonderful memories now and even more then...

I agree, we have had so much rain that it is ridiculous. I will be glad to have some sun also. Hope you have a nice memorial day weekend.

yay, the lilacs have just bloomed here as well - don't they smell so beautiful?! btw, I love that 2nd shot (close up) of the lily of the valley, wowza!

i know exactly what you're going thru btw about cooper - when my littlest went off to KG I was a MESS, cried and cried and cried ... they grow so quickly! now i'm going thru it all over again as my ladybugs are both leaving the elementary school phase, they're about to finish 4th and 6th grades - yikes - HOW did that happen?!

I wish we had lilacs in Alabama, but it is too hot for them! Lovely post. Your kids get out of school so late!!! Mine are out *squee* I am so happy!

Looks like you are right on track with us in Wisconsin. . .I love Lilies of the Valley too and they just finished bloomibg here. Now the peonies are ready to pop another fav.

We have one more week of school. Enjoy your time with your little man!

We just had a week of temps nearing 100 degrees. It was brutal. So spring seems long gone here. Today was in the upper 70's and it felt like fall! Crazy.
