After 82 degrees yesterday, we were lucky to make it to 55 today. I am REALLY not liking the Spring we have been having. Although I see that by the weekend, we are back up into the high 70's.

But my garden is planted (except for a few things), my flowers are done, and we had a wonderful Memorial Day.

We went to the parade in our little Village - honestly, 10 minutes and it was over - but the kids enjoyed it.

I finished up most of my flowers - a half a flat left to stick in the ground somewhere and I am DONE.

Hopefully my tomatoes and other veggies will survive the night. I don't think they are calling for heavy frost (or any sort of frost - the low is like 42) but I worry. I had to cheat - I grew my seedlings in the basement under a grow light since mid-March/early April - and the danged things died on me - I set them out in the dappled shade on Saturday to try and get them acclimated, and they croaked on me after about an hour. I'm not sure if the spring breeze was too much, or if it had been to cold in our basement (we have no heat down there and they were teeny tiny compared to what I brought at the greenhouses) so fortunately I had brought enough seedlings from one of the greenhouses and we will be fine (if they don't freeze out).

And Tyler learned how to swing ALL BY HIMSELF this weekend - I wasn't really pushing the issue, as I want my little boy for as long as possible, but he did it. Next he says the training wheels are coming off.

They grow up entirely too fast, don't they???

Yes, they sure do grow up fast. But there's always something new around the corner, so that's fun too.

Yup, they do. I can't believe mine are almost out on their own.
Swinging by yourself...that's a big deal!

Kris, OMG, how old is your little boy?? My little boy just learned who to swing by himself last week. He is 5. I was so proud of him, but like you, I don't want him to grow up too fast. I am so enjoying him being little.

They do grow up way too fast!! I can't believe mine are 7 and 4 already!! And I am totally with you on the spring thing. I'm ready for it to warm up and stay warm.

Turn around and they're grown, there used to be a song like that.

Yeah for swinging without pushes!
