Poppies

Look what showed up in our garden today! Isn't it beautiful? I love the petals, so delicate like crepe paper and they are a deep orange in color!


Tonight, was a parent meeting for all children in our district entering third grade in the fall. Caroline will leave her elementary school(K-2) and go to the intermediate school(3-6)...the school building is HUGE!!!! There are 1200 kids in the school divided into 4 "school houses". She will stay in the same school house her years there and siblings are places in the same school house. The school has 120 teachers and 80 support staff. Now the elementary school is set up the same way and is BIG as well and we have been REALLY happy so far! But, all the numbers and the size of the building overwhelmed me!! Caroline also had a tour of the school this morning. Her reaction...the library is HUGE and you can buy 2 snacks at lunch! I think she will be fine!

That flower is truly breathtaking.

I wish life wasn't so fast. It feels like just yesterday that my oldest was a newborn. He will be entering the 2nd grade next year and I wonder where the time went.
