What We've Been Up To

A Little Allison Krauss and Union Station
Some Trees for the Boys
from the
You know,
THINK that I shall never see 
A poem lovely as a tree. 
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest 
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast; 
A tree that looks at God all day,         
And lifts her leafy arms to pray; 
A tree that may in summer wear 
A nest of robins in her hair; 
Upon whose bosom snow has lain; 
Who intimately lives with rain.  
Poems are made by fools like me, 
But only God can make a tree. 

My hubby is a tree hugger.
While the boys were hiking, the girls took in a little light-weight caving.
And just so you know, this little ol' me is not so fond of enclosed spaces.
I did all right, fresh air, etc. But I was much, much happier once we came up that incredibly deep elevator shaft and I could see the blue sky again.
I'm much more elf and much less dwarf than I even knew.
And some good ol' blue sky action.
After celebrating Christ's resurrection Sunday morning, we spent some good time with my extended family, including the annual egg hunt.
Happy Easter once again.
Please continue to pray for my friends who just lost their 2yo to a tragic accident in the home. Thanks.
