Exciting Day!

There has been lots going on lately.
I've been subbing in different schools now that my long term position is up. I had a wonderful 1st grade class Thursday afternoon and got to see them Friday when I subbed in music.
Tim's brother and sister (Mark and Grace) came up Wednesday and will be with us through Thursday. Monday, his other brothers and their families will come hang out for Memorial Day.

I have been emailing back and forth with a girl from my long term position. She will be in 7th grade next year and of age for our youth group, so I sent her our summer schedule and her mom said she can come to some of it! I am so excited to hopefully get her plugged in to the church. Plus this will be a great way for her to meet more people who will be at the middle school. She is coming from a really small school, so this should help her feel more comfortable. I can't wait for our summer schedule to start and see her again.

Scroll through the pictures to see what else is happening.

It is almost June and our apple tree is finally showing signs of Spring. The apple blossoms were in full bloom in time for Mother's Day last year.

This is our plum bush. I didn't even know it existed until Fall last year when it had fruit. There are tons of these plum bushes. I can't wait to eat them this year!

Grace and I were walking around finding things to photograph. This little guy was doing different poses for us; this is my favorite.

And finally, Tim's iMac came by FedEx today. We had a grad party to go to this afternoon, and when we got home the package was on the porch. He hasn't moved from this spot since he set it up. We'll see if he steps away any time before bedtime.

Look close and you can notice Tim's short hair. I gave him a haircut this morning. I think I'm getting better each time. He's such a good sport about it! :)


  1. Your chipmunk picture is adorable. We have a lot of them around our house and we have enjoyed watching them but I am feeling a little peeved at them just now as they have been eating my strawberries.
