Lilies blooming!


These guys just popped out over the past week! It’s getting pretty warm here, a sure sign that summer is around the corner. Just a few more days of school left, and it feels like we’re going out with a bang. May and June are always frenetic, but we’re finding time to just be together between the spurts of frenzy. I finally got a good night’s sleep last night so I’m ready for this week 🙂 I’m also looking ahead to the summer – lots of unscripted time, as well as time to focus on neat projects we don’t have as much time for as we’d like during the year. The boys are very lucky to have teen mentors who will be working with them (and a few friends) on hockey and skating, maybe learning how to skateboard (Ben and me), programming and robotics and indulging in the card/board games they love. The teens benefit from being paid to do things they love to do anyway, while mentoring the younger guys. And they get paid about twice minimum wage. Good for everyone! This is my second summer coordinating this informal co-op of neighborhood boys. Wish me luck! 🙂

Hope you’re all having a good weekend!

    They are just beautiful! Love “tiger” lilies – I think that’s what they are. You do have a green thumb.

    Thank you for the email notification — I always do exactly what my InBox says!! I bet the fragrance is nearly intoxicating! I can’t wait for the rest of them to pop their flowers. 🙂
