Everyday Moments

These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from the last couple weeks.

Last week I attended Savannah's student-led conference in her classroom:

Savannah and I worked together to practice some skills, including nonfiction text features and adding 3-digit numbers, that she has been mastering during 4th quarter: 

While our family was in Myrtle Beach last weekend, Savannah and Harper got mermaid dolls as souvenirs from the Pirates Voyage show. I made the mistake of not getting a mermaid for Hadley, so Savannah and Hadley have been fighting over Savannah's mermaid doll:

I solved the problem by ordering this mermaid doll for Hadley from Amazon:

Hadley is happy to have her own mermaid doll...
and keeps saying "mine, mine, mine:"

I know it's hard to see in the photo below...but Hadley got her first two freckles on her nose while we were in the sun in Myrtle Beach last weekend:

On May 6, Savannah and Hadley made these flower pots at Home Depot and planted some flowers. Check out how much the girls' flowers have grown over the last 3 weeks. Savannah and Hadley are so excited!

This is our family's first damaged library book. This is what happened when Savannah left her school library book outside in our backyard for a couple days. It got wet and dirty. Savannah had to pay her school librarian (me) $4 from her piggy bank. 

Over the last couple weeks, we've gotten a lot of rain, and weeds took over our flower beds.Yesterday Tal and I spent four hours working in our flower beds in our front yard. I trimmed the bushes, while Tal scraped the weeds with a shovel. 

Then,Tal cut the grass, while Hadley and I went to the landscape landfill and got a truckload of mulch for $27:

Tal shoveled the mulch out of the truck... 

...while I spread it around the flower beds:

Now our yard looks neat and well-maintained!

While Tal and I were working outside, Hadley enjoyed playing with the hose and filling her pink pool and buckets with water:
