We brought in April celebrating my dad's 81st birthday on April 2.
For my 50th birthday, my father-in-law and brother-in-law got me an amazing new suitcase. Loved "breaking it in" on my trip to San Francisco for a ginormous math education conference. We had one afternoon to explore the city a bit...Fisherman's wharf, cable car, a boat ride under the Golden Gate Bridge, sourdough from Boudin, a hot fudge sundae at Ghiradelli - all the touristy things.
Adam has been writing finals this month, and wrote his last one on the 28th. He's getting excited about a short camping trip with new UBC friends early in May. On April 2, he did his final driver's test and now does not need an "N" - another milestone.
Colin has been working at two different Japanese restaurants, got a straight-A report card and has been doing lots of cooking at home and working on his knife skills. He also finally got his official EMR card in the mail.
The weather for much of April here was almost summer-like. Lots of beautiful walks.
April in the garden always means the quince tree in bloom and the lovely bleeding hearts making a short appearance. The potatoes that I neglected to do a final harvest of last year seem to be growing as well - we'll see what happens with those!
On April 27th, I was honoured to attend our school district's 25 year recognition dinner, for those that have served our district for 25 years. It was lovely to see my very first principal and to celebrate with teachers I went to UBC with and who I started my career with, along with current friends and colleagues! It was a very special evening.
And my one second everyday video for April...
And May is off to an amazing start. A deadline met. Sunshine. Flowers in bloom. Yeah May!
