fairy houses

C11 makes these amazing fairy people out of flowers and garden ... clippings, I guess.

This is her fairy house in front of our house, with the ladies and their clothes. This was all earlier in May, before the endless rain started, I think. Because now I'm sure they are ruined with 16 straight days of rain, and then one day off, and another 8 days of rain since then. Gah.


Details. Azalea flower skirts.


and these. Look at that hair made out of flower petals.

Random family photos

Just so we don't forget.

Unfortunate family photos:

Birthday lounging:

Sisterly affection (once in a blue moon?):

Oh, and I found this. I like the photo, it looks like the computer took it.

Youth Environmental Converence

This was great. Q10 and S9 submitted an application to be keynote speakers at this youth environmental conference. They GOT it. They host a weekly "trash talk" show on the HES morning announcements that they started because of all the trash on the playground.

They were good. We got there early, so at first they were upset, thinking they'd be presenting in front of HES students only (25 kids). Nope. It was more like 300-400 kids. They are FEARLESS.

Waiting to present:

Q10 has had a busy spring.
