Lily's Guest Post: Stuff

Let's start this post off with our cooking class finale. We have been taking a cooking class, it's very basic and we didn't learn much, but it was still awesome and we had tons of fun! Every Tuesday we got to go. We got to learn about different food groups and stuff like that. My favorite dish of all was probably the vegetable stir-fry. It was savory, warm, and tasty!For my job I got to cut the chicken and fry it. Before we cooked this meal, Katherina (our teacher), told us how dangerous raw meat can be, and then I got stuck on chicken duty. But I'm still alive, so hip-hip-hooray! Finale pictures:




 We have a garden, and we have already gotten some plants ready to eat such as radishes, chives, and garlic; and it's only May!

Our flowering chives

 We have recently had some flooding in our front yard. And it was deep! By deep I mean that in the middle it was like, a foot and a half down. I know this because Amara took off her shoes and waded in the freezing mud-water.

It has happened before though too:


My dad loves taking photos, he is an AMAZING photographer. Here's him and his pictures:




This next photo is my favorite. My dad spots the best photos. He was at the perfect angle and spot and he found a beautiful reflection of a cloud in this puddle. It's NOT photo shopped, NOT fake, and HE took it, not anyone else. It's so amazing, isn't it?

Softball season has begun and ended. I must say that I have improved a lot with the help of my coach, my teammates, and my dad! Here's Amara being catcher!

 And me batting:

 Me and Madi have matching shirts and team names! I'm Hawks, she's Hawks. I'm yellow, so is she! I'm #1, she's #1 too! I'm not kidding!



Our neighbors/BFFs  love having concerts. Madi loves singing and she is so sweet! Jax, her brother, is helpful and likes helping with our garden. Madi gardens with us only to be nice, she doesn't love pulling up weeds and watering like Jax. They are both super awesome!
 These next pictures are of my Aunt's dog, Ellie. She is nice, playful, and gets super excited when we visit. That means jumping, running in circles, barking, playful growling, and being super crazy. She is one of my favorite dogs, she is a sweetheart.
