Bunnies and Eggs

The weather has turned!
We now have Spring weather
and you know what that means...


I love looking at the Cumulus clouds. 
These happen when the sun heats the ground.
They are also know as "fair weather" clouds.
They grow in late morning and 
then disappear towards the evening.

The best part is finding different
 things up in the sky.

Today, I found a running rabbit.

I thought of Lulu!
She loves rabbits, especially her white rabbit

Lulu's recovery has been slow and emotional.

This past week Tom and I have had 
two or more grandchildren visiting and
spending the night.

We love it!

Papa BBQ'ing with the boys.
Isaac watching Papa mow the lawn.
Ila May dressing up.
Papa teaching Levi how to tie a Bowline knot.

Isaac playing in the planter
Ila May made a "town" on top of the bed.
Levi took apart the scooter. Then put it back together.
Silas helped with dinner.

Easter was special!

Lulu participated with the other grand kids in an Egg Hunt.
Because Lulu can't bend over, stretch or twist yet,
Papa was her assistant.


"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control, against such things there is no law."

Galatians 5:22-23

                         10 days...
                                      9 nights....
                                                    3 boys...

Tom and I took care of Levi, Silas and Isaac
while Lulu flew back  East for her back surgery.
Kimmy, Mark, Ila May and Nathan, were with
Lulu on this journey.

The boys got to choose where 
they wanted to sleep.
So they chose "Papa's" office.

Here are a few things that we did during their stay.

We did Homeschool

They came up with creative ways of playing.

Laundry room, watching the clothes go around and around.
Coffee table cars.
In an empty tub with cars.

We kept Kimmy's daily schedule.
which included Track practice, twice.

Isaac and I walked the track, while Levi and Silas


I always had a helper in the kitchen!
Silas loves my Taco Rice Casserole
and Silas helped me make a huge batch.

The reward, eating what they made.

Next it was Levi's turn.
He had created a dish called, Pastage.
He was in charge of
making dinner.

Levi was closely supervised by Silas.

Ahhh, the rewards.

Isaac had floor duty.

And more rewards!

Because the boys live so close to us,
we would go back and forth to their home.
After breakfast at our home, we'd
go down to theirs to feed the bunnies, chickens and cat.
We had, Home school, down there and lunch.
Followed by a nap for Issac.

This day, we ate lunch outside.

Levi is reading so well.
I had him read to me as much as possible.
I don't know if he enjoyed it
as much as I did!

We took them to church, twice, during their stay.

Here's proof that Tom and I could do it;
get ourselves ready,
get breakfast for 3 boys,
get 3 sets teeth brushed,
get 3 boys dressed,
get 3 heads of hair combed,
be on time for church!


One of our last days together, Levi
picked me some flowers.
My heart just melted.

Lulu's surgery went really well.
Please check out Kimmy's blog 
for Lulu's updated progress.

Monday evening, we all drove to the airport,
 to pick Lulu and family up!

The excitement was overwhelming!
Words can't even describe the moment 
they came in sight.

The waiting boys!

Even friends came to support 
Lulu and family.

But the waiting was taking so long,
because Lulu was in a wheelchair,
they were the last to disembark.

Here's Isaac seeing them from 
HIS angle.

The doors opened and the hugging began!

My picture taking wasn't the best 
because I was crying and hugging
and just so thrilled to see them!

Lulu's friend came to wish her 
a welcome back home.

It was great to have so many helpers with 
the baggage.

 Nest stop,
HOME !!!...


"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. "

Update On Lulu and Surgery

Many of you have asked about Lulu 
and how she is doing.
I thought I'd let you see for yourself by clicking onto Kimmy's blog.
Tom and I have been busy with three boys and  I don't have time to post much.

Just click on the words up above.

Thank you for the many prayers!
Our family has been blessed over and over with your love and support.


"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." 
 Ephesians 3:20
