Michael took advantage of the good weather this week to accomplish several outdoor tasks. He cut the tall grass around the bee hives so he could monitor their activity unhindered. He replaced the old broken down steps leading down to the lower level.
And can you guess what he's installing below?
Tuesday and Thursday evening robotics meetings started up again although not many students have ventured back yet after the intense competition season.
The team press release was published in this week's local paper, a two page large spread!
Wednesday, Rebecca came to our tap clsas to "help" her Mommy teach, so a selfie with abuela was in order.
Thursday I drove up to Grace Village to visit Mother and be there Friday for a special lunch with a retired missionary, Alice Peacock. She spoke of the current state of the work, the many new churches. So interesting to hear of the growth of the Grace Brethren mission now totally under national leadership after 100 years, while at the same time reading Aunt Margaret's fascinating letters from the early years.
My visit coincided with an opportunity that opened up for Mother to move into the Assisted Living area. We took her up to see the apartment she will be moving into this coming week.

I was glad to be home again Friday afternoon. Mike was out riding, his longest one yet, and pain-free! I suggested we start tandem-dates again. So today, Sunday was our first of the season (and my last as a 72 year-old.) We rode some 12 miles.
Kayla invited us over for a Mother's Day cookout.
We passed these lovely poppies and picked some other flowers on our way.
Other family updates:
--Elijah broke his wrist last Sunday and is wearing a short cast for about four weeks.
--Kristie still has some very bad days and nights. After the type of surgery she had it takes a long time for the rearranged organs and the digestive system to function normally.
