drum roll, please

It's time. The baby blades are growing taller and taller. So Greg mowed the back yard for the first time today. We stood and watched like we'd never seen him mow before. Back and forth. Back and forth. I'm sure he appreciated the audience. No one is allowed to play on the grass yet, which is slowly killing the kids, blade by blade. 

After the first mowing, Greg found this little lady by the back porch. 

Heather's heart swelled with love as she saw that her lady bug had indeed stayed in our yard and had even come back to the porch for a visit. Heather put her on her arm and cooed at her. Stephanie counted the spots and determined that she was in fact the same lady bug we let loose last week. Funny, I thought the last one was red. Hmm.

Lady bugs change color with the weather. So that probably is Heather's friend. Say hi to the cute little bug for me. I hope it stays around all summer.
By the way - YAAAAAYYY for the grass! Good work guys.
