Family Visit

I needed to go to the eye doctor because my glasses were horribly misadjusted.  They hurt to put them on. I called to see if my parents were home today and found my brother and Grandma were there too.  So we skipped school and went to visit family.

My Grandma is very special. She taught me to sew and how to rip out my sewing mistakes. She taught me how to french braid hair. She still helps me with sewing questions. I always enjoy the time I can talk with her.

Every spring she comes to live with Mom and Dad for the summer. My brother Joe brought her up after enjoying her at his house for awhile. I enjoyed being able to talk to him today and watch him read “Green Eggs and Ham” to Adrian.

What a great way to spend a warm morning, visiting with family!


I was attempting to get some good pictures of the girls in the dresses that I made for them.  However, even with the flash they were in too much shade.  I will have to try again.  But, this picture captured what Adrian thought of it.

Bluebird Babies

Today we went to check on our bluebird babies.  Three of the four eggs have hatched.  It was so neat!  Mark took the picture of the hungry babies.


Adrian kept asking if we saw “Scouts” while we were out.  I said that I did not see any and he insisted “yes, you DID.”  He saw this picture of the Tree Swallow watching and said “see, there’s the Scout Bird”.  I guess I did see some Scouts today.

All Boy

Adrian asked if he could have a candy cane for snack today.  I forgot where I put them and said yes.  Knowing where they were, Adrian helped himself to one and then got some to share.

I remembered where the candy was “hidden” in time to get a picture and help Adrian down because his hands (and mouth) were full holding the candy.
