Dear Grandparents,
The weather has been getting better, but it still rains in the nighttime sometimes. We went on another picnic to the Grassy Hill this week. There were big bushes with tiny white flowers blooming all over the place there, making there look like there were big traces of white paint all over the place. It was really pretty. We had fun. Only a few weeks till Easter!

"Mom, why did you put cucumbers on the shelf?"

No, Abigail. Those aren't cucumbers. They are the greenest bananas I have ever seen.

Dear Grandparents,
The sun has come out, and we went on a picnic today. Yesterday we dyed Easter eggs and used them to make egg salad for our picnic. We still haven't been able to buy food at the grocery store, so we still are ordering it. We've been able to order Parmesan and cheddar cheese, so that was nice too. And for St. Patrick's day we had shamrock shakes with spinach in it and lots of other green food.

These sentences don't make sense, but Abigail is reading all over these days.
