US Capitol

One of Benjamin's winter projects was putting together a model of the US Capitol Building.  He & Russell found it to be quite challenging yet fun.  I love the end result....especially with the lights on inside.

South Padre Island

Once Trevin recovered (rather quickly) from his sickness during the break, we escaped south to the beach.  It was lovely to have the place nearly to ourselves!  I find it quite therapeutic to listen to waves & dig my toes in the sand.

Sweet times

My heart aches when I see these pictures and yet I have deep joy because of this time together with Russell's family.  I'm so, so thankful we made this trip!  I linger over these photos and remember little tidbits of conversations, visits, laughs & even the tears that flowed. This was a trip filled with firsts & lasts.  Reminds me again that we don't know when our 'last' experiences will take place.  The most important thing is to keep our next step faithful, because it could be our last.

Kitchen time

Having a kitchen helper always makes tasks in the kitchen more fun.  Loved spending time in the kitchen with Ben this past week.  He can add another dish to his "I've made it" list:  cornbread. 

The grin says it all....something is about to happen & I may need to duck for cover.
