It's getting warmer

 It's getting warmer, and so the little people start coming out in droves again. :) For the last week or two, these kids have been playing together most afternoons. Two of our neighbors have 4 year olds, so Miaya has plenty of play friends. They alternate between houses, usually all in the same afternoon. Good times.
And here is little Sarah, wanting to color too.The big kids like to play with her too, so it's fun times to be had for everyone.

Interestingly enough, on Saturday it was like 70 degrees, and then on Sunday it was only in the 30s. We also got quite a bit of snow. It was awesome. The snow is all gone now. Dustin even mowed the lawn for the first time this year, yesterday. Our garden in growing slowly but surely. Lettuce and peas for everyone! It's supposed to rain for the next week or so, but right now it's sunny and breezy. There are huge gray clouds rolling in, though, so we shall see.

Enough with my weather report.

Spring cleaning, and all sorts of meeting new people in the next week or so for the Bakers: My cousin Russell is in town, and there is to be a large gathering of cousins and aunties; Melisa's brother in law and wife are here, and so we are going to try to meet up with them somehow; Mamma's friend is coming down with stuff for my sisters and I, and I also need to send things along with her. It shall be crazy and interesing.

Oh, and did I mention that I am nervous about each and every one of those encounters? I am. blerg.

Hey I just planted some peas and do I need to stick something in there so they can grow upways? I know nothing about this. I bought some tomato plants, pepper plant and snapping peas and know nothing about it.
