And M has been hard at work trying to master jump-roping. :)jumping rope

I hope you are all having a wonderful spring!

Have a beautiful day! :)


  1. Oh, I didn't know you lived in MN! My sister used to live there. It was beautiful in spring when I went to visit!

  2. Love the shots of M walking down the road! How cool to have a duck couple nest in your yatd

  3. Yay, spring. It looks lovely there right now! Love the ducks. We have a cardinal couple that comes to eat here most days. The male flies right in my face to announce that he is ready for breakfast. Then he goes to get the female and he feeds her seed by seed. It is the sweetest thing I've seen! Sam loves it too, and tries to keep our small feeder full for them.

  4. What wonderful Spring weather you have been having!!

  5. Your pictures mirror our afternoon. We went for a lovely nature walk this arvo and later on Savvy used a torn sheet (of all things) to show me that she "did one skip" (I really need to buy her a skipping rope).

    Precious times with M enjoying that glorious weather and scenery.

    I was excitied to see the sequencing cards on your blog - I have just printed them. Thank you for sharing these.

    It's always a delight to stop by here.
