Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Schools Out For summer................................

Yes it is. Half day today. I went to pick up Tristen and it was utter chaos, thank goodness I didn't drive. The van was in for repairs. I walked. Its like 2 blocks at most. The whole school was outside, there was a man playing the bugle and the front was full of kids listening. Grade 5 graduated. Tristen made it through Kindergarden.
Here he is with Mrs Grigle she saw him through some difficult times and gave me good advice. I am gratful to her. I picked flowers from the garden. My van was in the shop being fixed or I would have gone to the store yesterday and got her something.

We walked home and had lunch then Laura and Reina came over. We were going to take the kids to the playground then go for ice cream.
The kids were not really into playing. Both were tired and so were both Laura and myself. So a quiet walk was decided upon. Familiar ground in the woods and shaded. It was getting too warm for me.

Silver Lake park has some nice trails, nothing new but still a nice enough walk.

There were loads of Dragon flys and I tried to get some pictures. The Blue Iris were out.Soon the yellow will be out as well. The ferns were only just unrolling last time we were there but now are lush and thick on the ground.

Damsels are worse, it's really hard to get a good picture. There were several mouthy Chipmunks. We could hear frogs but didnt see any.

The kids were not really into this today but they still managed to enjoy it somewhat. Reina and Laura took naps when they got home. I could have done the same but had to go get my van. It's fixed sort of.

I think it was an emotional day for the kids, getting out of school for summer. They wont see friends for another few months then new teachers and kids.It got pretty warm today after a couple of wet cold days

I was trying to get a picture of Laura but she got one of me instead.

We then went right back to the car, they didnt want to play in the park. Probably because I had said we would go for ice cream after.

So that was how we spent the first half day out of school. The first of many we hope.
