A Non-Video Post...

...but poignant enough to share:  Finn and R-star and I walked Daniel to the bus this morning and on the way back, the boys were lured to the warm south face of the neighbourhood school that was full of dandelions.  I sat on the grass and received the fist-fulls of yellow flowers that my eager sunny haired boys brought to me for 45 minutes.  On one trip, Finn, who was wearing a bright yellow shirt, remarked to me, "Mama, in the Selfish Giant story (by Oscar Wilde), the giant said, 'I have many beautiful flowers, but the children are the most beautiful flowers of all.'"

Finger Lights

A favourite of the Easter basket this year.

Fill 'er up!

Yes, we know the propellant is nitrous oxide, but when did a little laughing gas hurt anyone?  A good use of the first appearance in our home of whipped topping in a can (thanks, Grandad!).
