When we got back from California I noticed almost all of my garlic had sprouted Scapes.
I cut most of them off because I’ve read that you do that so all the plants energy goes to growing bigger bulbs.
Now I’ve just got to figure out how to eat them.
Lily thought it sounded fun to put this sticker on her face.
Lily’s buddies are set up for a picnic or eating at a restaurant. I can’t remember which.

This picture is of my Grandparents; my Dad’s parents, my newborn sisters and myself. My Grandpa; Papaw passed away when I was in 7th grade. Mamaw passed away two weeks ago and she’s the reason we were in California last week.
A few weeks ago we decided to go to the Boise Botanical Garden before going to the zoo. Our season pass is was almost up and we wanted to get one more trip in before we had to pay again. I didn’t go into this planning to take a ton of pictures, but by the end of our 90 minutes or so there I’d taken almost 300 pictures. I just love the Botanical Garden, it’s so beautiful and peaceful. Not a lot of the flowers were blooming yet, but it was still very lush and there were enough flowers to make me happy.
We saw a little snake while looking in the rose garden. It was tiny and wanted to have nothing to do with us.
In February (I know, I’m so behind) Lily had her last ballet classes from her second attempt at dance class. She loved it so much. It was just 3 other girls, two were sisters and the third was the daughter of the teacher. Lily really worked at listening and participating, she’s a little uncoordinated (my fault I’m sure), but she was getting there. I was never able to leave the room though. I tried a few times and it resulted in major meltdowns. Oh well. I’ll try again next time.
Lily was the first girl to master levitation.
I love how Lily does her ‘rockstar walk’, it cracks me up.
These next pictures are from the last class. They call it a recital, but really they just have the normal class and all the parents watch. The girls do a little dance they have been practicing at the end, but that lasted all of 2 minutes.
A few days ago I was sitting on my bed reading while Lily was getting dressed. Lil looked at me and said, “Mama your face looks sad, are you reading a sad book AGAIN?” I told her that my book was a little sad, but I’d be ok. She walks over to me and hooks her arm around my shoulder and says “I’ll give you some love so you will feel better”. I kissed her cheek and told her “Thank you, I already feel better”. She scolded me and said “I’m giving YOU love, you don’t give me love, just take mine.”
I scooper her up into my lap and hugged her for a few minutes. While I did this she kissed me all over my face. I told her “I don’t know how I got so lucky with you”. She kissed me again and asked if I had gotten enough Love yet, I told her no and continued to hug her a little longer. God I love this kid.
