Fifteen

It’s really hard to believe that this little guy here…

 is now 15.

His birthday was officially on June 1, where we almost had to call the fire brigade for his cake.

He’s also wearing a new shirt he got. Themed from Arrow, a TV series that he enjoys a lot.

I think he had a good birthday weekend though. School let out on the 2nd, where he got to go to a sleepover, and while the weekend was hot, they mostly got to relax around the house.

Our annual Red Lobster trip had to be postponed, but now that it’s summer, we can go during the week too.

Caturday? Bird Lessons

It’s quite clearly spring now. Mother birds are out teaching their own younglings the ways of the world.

We were blessed with three robin nests this year. I think one got hit, but as far as I know, the other two are still active with little ones, soon ready to learn to fly.

The cats have been highly valuing looking out the windows at these feathered feasts, swishing their tails and pondering what they would do if they were outside.

Strawberry Promises

We just planted these! Here they are, already blossoming and possibly going to bear tiny strawberries their first season in the ground.

We bought quite a few little plants. It’s our hope that they all make it so that we have scads of strawberries soon™.

Dancing Newbie

I’m sure this will become a standard reaction GIF for me, but I wanted to share the origins.

They had a slingshot station set up for the little ones. Some of them, like Newbie, I wondered if she would accidentally slingshot herself.

The first time she was… up at bat? and let the ball go she accidentally beaned one of the ladies that was holding one end of the slingshot.

Her next attempt was this one, and she was very happy that it went flying as far as it did.

This is the Newbie victory dance.
