I am in Louisiana visiting my daughter that just had twins - a girl and a boy.

Ice Cream

I bought popsicles and ice cream for the kids the other day hoping that the weather would warm up and they could all have ice cream outside. That is one of my favorite things to do -- give the kids ice cream in a cone on a hot day and watch them sit on the porch and enjoy. Well, it was kind of warm and my grandson Asher seemed to really love his ice cream.

MRI Canceled

I had asked for prayer for Joey since he was having his MRI on Thursday, but he got a call today that it had to be canceled and rescheduled. I'm not sure when it will be now, but please continue to  remember him in your prayers. 

We have gotten back into our nature studies this spring and all of us really enjoy reading and discussing our nature books. Tess and Bethany seem to especially enjoy our study and have some big plans for projects. This is something they all love and it is good to see them enjoy it so much. Learning can be difficult for some of my children, but when you are really interested and you can have some hands on learning it makes it a lot easier and more fun. 

Pictures of the girls making cornbread again and then a chocolate cake -- Sarah's favorite. Then they did some drawings from our nature study today. 










































































































































































































































































Caroline ended up taking so long that she finished up her picture as we read our new book The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall. I think this book is going to be a hit. It is one I have never read to the kids before and that is unusual.
