On our first official day of 'summer', we took an early run/walk to "The Woods"- a little stretch of 1/4 mile path that meanders through a gently forested area that has been allowed to remain (somewhat) untouched by the housing development around it.
Later on, we attended Alex's Kindergarten Picnic-- our annual viewing of a puppet play followed by a potluck feast. It was so fun to visit with all of our friends. After lunch, we poked our heads behind the kindergarten cottage to check on Alex's iris. It is ALMOST blooming! We donated a few bulbs from our garden two years ago, and it finally felt strong enough to produce some blooms this year.
