Carpe Spring

Sprinklers.



Parks.





T-ball is ongoing: the last regular season game is tomorrow afternoon, and the playoffs start Saturday.






And the final week of school: I got a locker shot on the way to chaperone a trip to the Garfield Park Conservatory.


I had a group of kids I was escorting around, and I rounded a corner and found the boys giggling next to this statue.  Ha, sweetie, joke's on you, I'm going to take a picture despite your obvious disgust!  Um, that might be good for a year or two of therapy.  Oops.


And thus ends first grade!  Spencer was recognized in the little end-of-year ceremony for "Being Friendly", which strikes me as exactly right.  When his pediatrician asked if he had problems at school, I mentioned that he had gotten in more frequent trouble recently for talking during class.  She smiled, and wrote down "Doing fine socially."  Provides a little perspective, I guess.

And in the first couple weeks of summer vacation:

First goal in soccer!!!!! (Spencer is the celebratory # 6.)


And more parks:





The monkey bars are definitely Lizzie's thing right now.

"Lizzie you want me to do that??!?  That's crazy!"


"Hah, watch!"



 


Teddy's occasional reaction to all this park nonsense:



And, just for variety, a little chess.  In how many households can the pre-schoolers play chess (um, sort of) and wave wands yelling "Wingardium Levios-a!" before they've mastered the potty training thing?  (On the potty training thing: progress!  But I don't want to jinx it.  Shhhh!)


More mini golf, on Navy Pier:



And finally, a bit of gardening.  Don't they look thrilled?



Right then.  Consider spring seized.
