April left a little quickly but was filled with excitement!

I'm working on a graduation party for Teenage Boy. His lab school is closing which has caused him to reevaluate and graduate early. Wow. That's a lot to take in.
After attending many grad parties in the past we knew we wanted to make less of an earthly impact. We didn't want a huge garbage can to be filled up with paper plates, cups, and streamers. After searching local party stores I ended up ordering compost-able plates and cups from Amazon. I feel ecstatically happy about this decision. We are having root beer floats, Bugles (TB favorite snack-so not healthy), popcorn popped by me, and turkey hot dogs roasted over our fire pit.
I read three good books in April:
1. The Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich.
2. The Clockwork Three by Matthew J. Kirby.
3. Crossed by Allie Condie.
I went to only one movie, Bully, but it was life-changing. I recommend it to everyone, 4th grade and above. Even Groovy Girl saw it and she made it through the few bad words. We went as a family and had a great discussion afterwards. I cried continuously and have felt moved to talk to everyone about it.
