Granddaughter Amber is at the house this week and we are doing piano lessons, making singing videos, but mostly she is out and about running the street with her friends. Here is a shot of her on the piano:
I have also been working hard on the yard. Last year we did some extensive planting of 40 some trees, including the ones I put in the common area, 30 some bushes, blueberries, apple trees, and more flowers (bulbs) than I have kept track of. The yard is coming along too, having started as a desert when we arrived in Fall of 2011.
Here is a shot of the tree house the neighbor kids have created. They are so proud of the tree house, offering to show it to anyone who will listen. The tree is huge. I , for one, am glad they found a solution that didn’t involve climbing up in the tree.
Amber’s parents, Josie and Jim, will be visiting this afternoon for a BBQ. Grandson Nick, now 17 will be doing chores for allowance. He usually has his girl friend in tow too. Here’s hoping you get to spend some time with your family and friends.
