St. Patrick's and Sisters!

 St. Patrick's Day dawned bright and early.  Dawna hoped that the Leprechauns would come visit and leave prizes behind.  She made a four-leaf clover and left out some mini Oreo cookies for them (since they are little people).  She wasn't disappointed in the morning...

 The Leprechauns ate the cookies... and left behind a treasure hunt for each of the kids.  They had to read and follow the clues on the shamrocks to find their "End of the Rainbow" prize. 
Weston Helped Larry read his clues
Larry found his prize under the fish tank!

Their prize was a lunch box!  They all have wanted one for a while to take snacks to the park or Nana's house or whatever... Larry loves taking his to school with a snack in it.  
And actually home schooling goes much smoother when Dawna has snacks in her lunch box to enjoy in between subjects...

 And this last weekend, we had my sister here to visit to celebrate her birthday!  We spent Saturday in Tiburon and on Angel Island.  We loved the boat ride, the hike, and the immigration museum.  I was amazed at the incredible poetry there!  It was quite a story to read and enjoy and learn about.  (Back home that same day, Jon kept the kids for me and taught Larry how to ride a bike!)
The girls had a nail party with Aunt Heather on Sunday after church: Pink and Yellow polish with flower stickers!  So pretty!

In other fun with Heather, we went to the tree house park, got some new clothes, and together we picked 29 pounds of lemons to send home in a duffle bag to uncle Rob :)  So glad Heather got to come visit!  We LOVE her!

Bike riding? That's a cool 5 year old trick.
