I can hardly believe it's May, already. Elliot just turned 4 and today marks Amelia’s 1st day of her fifth month. May is the time we begin getting the house and yard ready for summer. It’s time to hose down the porch and porch furniture. Lay down a piece of indoor/outdoor carpet for bare feet to walk across. Time to plant the outdoor gardens, throw out a few flower seeds, pull out the water table, fill the sand box and line the yard with Elliot’s collection of bikes, cars and big wheels.
This year we will need to purchase new chair and glider pads and I’d like to string outdoor lights across our porch. I crocheted a few lightweight lap blankets for cuddling during thunderstorms (a favorite pastime for us, besides running in the rain). We will carry-on our tradition of porch picnics, eating watermelon and multiple games of pounce.
How will you prepare for summer??
