Redflare called the trash pickup company once the snow melted and she had a chance to actually watch what they were (and weren’t) doing but between then and this picture every trash pickup day there would be quite a bit of stuff floating around the neighborhood.
On one such occasion sweet little Newbie picked up an offending item in each hand and walked it home after school to be properly disposed of.
Interestingly the elementary concerts were split up by ages/grades.
Yes, that meant we had to go to the elementary school twice in one week in the evening but at the same time, I appreciated that they weren’t trying to fit _everything_ into one night for the kids’ bedtimes sake.
They both enjoyed waving to us from the risers.
It’s amazing to me that little Newbie there is now in what I think was Little Miss’ first dress.
