Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Signs of Summer
Mary Frances finished up her first grade year on Friday. It was a good one! Thank goodness ~ at the beginning of the year I was a bit concerned. I am thankful to say you love to learn as much now if not more than when you entered first grade. I love that you always have a smile on your face. I hope you don't ever lose that. You really do love to learn ~ you listen well and have a fantastic ability to retain information . You have become a proficient reader, and I never cease to be amazed with your math skills. You are responsible and take care of your things. I'm proud that you are always willing to try even when you aren't the most comfortable in the given situation. You know what you want, but for a six year old you are remarkably flexible and willing to adapt to changes. That my love will take you far in this world. You seem to get along well with others and have some good friends. That too is a blessing!
As I've stated here before, I'm looking forward to summer and having all of my chickadees close to me. I love watching my children play together. I love watching them interact with each other and their friends. I love watching them look our for each other. They have incredibly vivid imaginations and they learn from one another. Now don't let me give you any false ideas that it is always peaches and cream around here. Trust me is it isn't - they fight just like other siblings, however they love each other so much and that love is evident to all who see them together. If you hear me say it once you'll hear me say a million times, my children will each have their own set of accomplishments, but together they can do anything they set their minds to.
No school year is complete without field day ~
Field day is a fun way to end the year - even for the spectators ~
Summer is in full swing at our house! The signs are everywhere we turn.
