Last week was one of those weeks where I didn’t know if I was coming or going! Just busy with everything. Getting the girls ready for their recital, quilting, gardening, getting the house ready for visitors, graduation open houses….oh and the list goes on. It seems like it’ll be a little quieter for about a month…I hope!
Flowers are finally starting to look nice. It always takes them a few weeks to take off.
This is one of my driveway planters. The flowers finally have blooms again! All the severe weather we had made them lose every single bloom. Looked like a pot of greenery for a while!
Garden is starting to take off too.
I already have beans and tomatoes. The beans are ready to pick too!! I usually never cook any of the beans we grow. The girls eat them before they ever see the cook top! 🙂 I have a ton of tomato plants that seeded themselves from last year. I have little tomato plants growing all over my garden. Like 50!! Actually at the base of the bean plant you can see one growing. I planted 6 tomato plants this year, but it looks like I may have a whole lot more!!
The girls had their recital Saturday night. It was a long day because the dress rehearsal was that morning. We had to be up super early, so I could do their hair and makeup. We had a few hours to rest and then the show. The girls needed their hair redone because it had fallen out by Saturday night. Thank goodness my sister and her friend were here to help me. They did the girls hair, so I could get ready. My mom was in town from New Mexico for the performance. It was so nice to have her here too. She left for a trip Sunday, but we’ll see her again briefly in July.
The girls’ performance was magical. I enjoyed every second. They danced in two numbers the first half of the show and three in the second. I almost cried during their ballet performance. The looked like angels.
Scott and I were just amazed at how they could remember to do 5 different dances!! They didn’t seem nervous at all. I was a nervous wreck for them! The award ceremony happens at the end of the recital. The girls were awarded 2 out of 4 dance scholarships given!!! We were so excited!!! It was a complete surprise when their names were announced. Again, I had to choke back tears. The scholarship covers tuition to go to a dance camp. The girls were just thrilled! It was the perfect ending to a perfect evening.
I should have some quilting pics to show soon!!
