We're so proud of all her accomplishments and wonderful friends.

Over the weekend, my sister gave me several new toadstool solar lights for my backyard gnome garden.
With all my new backyard accessories, the gnome house and all the plantings received a good spring cleaning. Yes. I might have taken some of these pictures in my pajamas. I realize I am a dork and it's a good thing that my gnome garden is in the backyard woods and that only a few birds and small creatures witnessed this photo shoot.
I promise to try and catch up on blog reading. May is my hectic month of faculty development and spring semester classes. I haven't had much blogging time lately. Don't give up on me!

Over the weekend, we celebrated Emma's very last high school prom. Sigh. Such a beautiful girl, even if I'm a bit biased.
I also spent some time cleaning out my garden shed (which is more like an adult playhouse than a garden shed). I chased out all the spiders and washed linens. Now, I just wish our weather would stay warm enough to enjoy it!
On Sunday, my mom, sister and I attended season opener of the Allegan Antique market. Of course, I found another Chinese Checkerboard to add to my growing collection. I'm addicted, I tell ya!
Lastly, if you are out shopping this weekend and near a Dollar Tree, they are selling the prettiest paper lanterns and they even light up! Wouldn't they be really festive as birthday party or Mother's day decorations? I hope you find time to play this weekend.

We've still got all kinds of spring cleaning to do in the yard.

We've never traveled to Florida during the typical K-12 spring break.
Chris did some investigating into condo rentals and found us a lovely unit near Laguna beach at the far west end of Panama city.
We couldn't have asked for better weather.
One of our favorite activities was renting a pontoon and spending the day at Shell Island.
St. Andrews State Park, even though we didn't spot any alligators.
On the way home, we stopped in Tennessee and explored Rock city Fairyland Caverns.Lookout Mountain, just 6 miles from downtown Chattanooga.
