I have long wanted to visit Carlsbad Caverns and see the bats. Well, I got half my wish–I finally had the opportunity to see the cave but there weren’t any bats.
We went on the self-guided tour through the Big Room. It was absolutely stunning. I was so glad to finally see it for myself, and that my family was getting the opportunity to see it too.
Now you can take a photo tour of the cave with us, thanks to my husband and his camera.
Which one is your favorite? Now don’t you want to go there too? It really is one of the amazing natural wonders of this country.
The three big kids also earned their Junior Ranger Badges. So we were able to count this as a good solid school day! Here are three proud Junior Rangers with their books, certificates and badges.
Well, with snow hanging around all the way into Spring, gardening is presenting it’s challenges. Here is a view of our garden boxes in the snow.
In spite of the snow, thanks to the tender loving care that my brother has been giving to our garden, we have been continuing to bring in greens about once a week from the garden. It’s pretty special to be eating garden greens when snow is all over the ground.
We also are getting our tomatoes off to a start in the dining room.
You should see how often the boys in this home check on these plants. I have been enjoying watching the plants too, but watching how much the boys love the plants is even more rewarding.
This is what it looked like at our house on the first day of Spring. It was a little hard to take.
These pictures were taken a few days earlier, but the snow hung around and kept returning until March 21. We hope that the real Spring has arrived.
Scholastic is having another one of their Dollar Deals. I had fun shopping the sale yesterday. Here is one of the things I purchased.
This is from the book: File-Folder Games in Color: Alphabet. It is game to practice matching lowercase letters with uppercase letters. My kindergartener and I have been having fun playing it.
The sale only lasts until March 28. So get over there and check it out.
