April Snow

Yesterday Nick put up his window decorations to celebrate the arrival of spring.  But this morning we woke up to a surprise, instead of April Showers, we have April Snow!

Mom looked online and said the snow should stop in the afternoon.  Mom said, "that's good news, we bought some spring flowers this week and we don't want them to get too cold.  Also, I put the shovels and the salt away on Saturday!"

Happy Easter!

On Easter Sunday, Liza gave Nick a card, it was created by his classmates at school. Liza said, "I love supporting your class and buying you cards for all the holidays!"

Planting Pansies

Today there was no AHRC, so mom said to Nick, "let's go to the garden center and get some flowers to plant."

We went to the garden center and picked out pansies to put in our flower boxes.
As soon as we got back to the house Nick opened the trunk and took out the flowers and put them on the lawn.  Mom went to get our gloves and garden tools to do the work.
First we had to toss the soil and mix it up so it was fresh for the flowers.
Nick was very happy, he kept taking breaks to jump and clap his hands.  He had a big smile on his face.
Mom was very happy that Nick helped with the planting. 

Here he is putting the flowers in the soil. 

Nick has done this since he was a little boy, and now he is big and a great helper in the garden.

FaceTime with Grammy

Tonight we did FaceTime with grammy.  She took Nick on a tour of her apartment, and showed Nick his artwork hanging on the walls.  Nick was very quiet and curious to see his work framed and displayed!  Grammy said, "I love your artwork and enjoy seeing it every day!"
