Road to Spring - February Snow

Faces of Cousins

Abijah and Havilah

A series of snapshots, portraying the blended role of biggest sis and littlest mommy.


Thad is at such a fun age of playfulness, drooling grins and chuckles, serious crawling, and showing off new sharp teeth. I took the kids to Grammy's to meet up with sister-in-law Janelle and nephew Thad last week. My brother Seth drove in after a late afternoon flight to the absolute surprise of Mom, sisters, and brother Luke at home. It was stupendous joy! Thanks Seth and Janelle for the gift of three days with you and precious Thad!

Remote Control Boat

Gabe has been enthralled with remote control boats for two and a half years since waiting his turn to captain one at the state home-school convention. "Santa" saw this vessel on clearance last year and knew whose name to put on it. This was Gabe's second cruise with it. We had nearly given up on a safe launch point yesterday afternoon, but then realized the new city fountain we had come upon last week was the perfect answer to the day's dilemma. It was fifteen minutes of complete fulfillment for Gabe in the gathering dusk.


Resting and content in the contours of life.
