Ivy is off to Kindergarten in September. It's really hitting us now that May is disappearing and the summer will go quickly. She's a beautiful character these days, astounding us with her curiosity, thoughtfulness and grace.
I also forgot to post the Mother's Day card she made for Tannis a couple of weeks ago. It's a poster, actually, with big bold pictures and text -- she painted it in secret the day before and revealed it on the big day. Ella, not to be outdone, painted her own with an abstract flair, taped to the wall above Ivy's. Oh, and one more photo: sisters running on the boardwalk.
