Number Five's final college piano recital

Yesterday Husband and I drove to St. Paul to attend Number Five's final college piano recital. Next year she will be student teaching in the spring semester and getting ready to graduate! Of all of the years watching her recitals, this was very much the crowning of it all. She played confidently, and passionately, and oh so beautifully! Talking to her professors and friends afterwards was a joy!

Snapshots from early spring in the backyard

We are betting against time... hoping this rainy week will bring warmth and sun until we out of the danger of frost. I went ahead and planted the herbs and some tomatoes and eggplant and zucchini, they were ready to go!



Can't get enough of the weeds... before we mowed I picked another bouquet!





Our dear Cirrus had two kittens!





The Raspberry--a gift from Mary and John Ruane we planted last fall--took!




And the squirrel proof baffle works! I have never seen so many birds so close as it is right in front of the kitchen window. I am finally beginning to learn their names!

Number Four's Last Choir Concert

Number Four is graduating with a Music minor as well as his double major, and a huge part of his college days has been singing in these two choirs everyday! Last night we enjoyed his last concert on the Performing Arts Center. They will sing one more time on Thursday for a farewell event for the departing Provost.

So handsome, so proud!

With dear choir directors Dr. Diddle and Dr. Robinette

With good friend and choir buddy James


We took some videos:
