First Post-Solar Enery Bill

We finally got our first post-solar electric bill.  It is fantastic!  For the month and a half that we've had the panels, we have generated 482 kWh over what we used.  This will be very helpful during the winter!  So from the past two months, our electric bill has been $40 (and that's only because we didn't have the panels on for the first half of March).

On Saturday, I participated in the Color Run in Baltimore.  It is a 5K run where there are "color zones" where people throw colored corn starch on you.  It was a lot of fun - and I came home very dirty!

Mother's Day was nice and low key.  Chris made me multiple meals and a bunch of cupcakes - it was a yummy day!

Chris also spent part of the weekend working in the yard - cleaning up branches, cutting the grass, etc.

During the week, Samantha and I had a lot of fun.  She had her first snowball and we went to the Howard County Conservancy.  Of course she had to wear her new shades since it was so nice out.

We also got to play at the playground near the airport - Samantha really enjoyed watching the planes land.  After that, we went to Clark's Elioak Farm where she had fun with some friends and got to check out all the goats, cows, sheep, and horses. 

She has really been such a joy - her personality is really starting to come out.  She is almost always happy and very silly too.  She had a good time trying on Daddy's running shoes (and work gloves) last week.

She absolutely loves books.  Here is a video of her "reading" to herself this afternoon.

 I'll leave you with a fun photo of her "chillin" in the den.
