spring pictures

I haven't posted pictures of the kids in a while, so here are a few from the last month or so. Nor of the exciting updates to the vegetable garden! (my other baby) Here are Teresa, Maya, and Georgia playing:

(that one's from Teresa's birthday, I guess that's more than a month ago)

Here's the veggie garden in back, doubled in size from last year and neatened up to look more potager and less caterpillar-shaped dirt pile.

Here it is from the other direction: partially planted, fenced, and snowed on (last Sunday). The seedlings there are broccoli, cabbage and raspberries so they didn't mind the snow at all.

Here are the first sprouts of the veggies we planted from seed. It will be lettuce when it grows up and even in its babyhood it doesn't mind a little snow either.

Here's my favorite spring flower, the mysterious fritilaria.

And the other big mystery of life: how to get my kids to not get crazy when asked to smile for a picture. Oh well. They're happy.

Addendum: We're having a no TV and no computer games week this week, alternately called The Baker Family Unplugged and Little Bakers on the Prairie. Happily, writing on the computer is not prohibited. We started out whiny and disordered, but it's the third day now and I think we have a more creative, interactive vibe going.

These are gorgeous, especially the girls making silly faces. My young friends are growing so fast! Much love~

LOVE the garden! You must be a happy camper with the babies showing their loveliness. Never mind the group photo. Absolutely the kind I must have in my wallet.

Also enamored of the week's titles. You're something else. Anybody want to go to Michigan this weekend with Sushi, Lucy, and me? (Say Sushi Lucy fast five times. You'll see what I'm up against at home when I'm calling for a pet and grandchild's attention. Mostly, it just comes out as Lushi.)

Love you all a bunch
