2010 Week 17: Home again!

Sunday we spent most of the day above the clouds or in airports, our spirits flying sky high too.

Fun times at Monday Meal
Grandson Malachi and friend David, both wearing glasses now.

Malachi recited the eight verses from Hebrews worth $40 coupon toward Miracle Camp. Skye earned his also, he and I have been memorizing them together and review each day on the way to the Red Barn.
I go to the Gray Barn every Tuesday and Friday for an exercise class run by Taylor University exercise science majors. 

This cardinal kept flying into our solarium window insistently e.v.e.r.y day, no kidding. Someone suggested we cut out the outline of a predator bird and put it on the glass. Since coming back from our trip, no sign of the cardinal. Maybe he knocked himself out.

Last bouquet of the season of all varieties of daffodils/narcissus/jonquils.

We submitted our last writing for the Focus on Memoir online course. Far from finished, but hopefully we are all moving in the right direction and will keep on working on our projects.

I ran a 5K again after a very long time. My time was 41:35. I was the last one in. But I was just glad to have hung in there jogging s.l.o.w.l.y but not walking. Placed second in my age group and won a door prize worth as much as the registration fee! Not a bad way to start the day. Plus I got to hang out with my DIL.

Watched the grandboys so Sam and Kristie could get away for a few hours. They went to see "Letters to God" and highly recommend it, true story, sad but inspirational.

The older boys got some archery practice in

 Zion is five months old today!

I love your cloud picture - that is my favorite thing about flying!
Great pictures of the cardinal (hope he is ok!) and daffodils!
You'll have to let me know how that worm tea works out!

Are you so glad to be home again?

Memorizing scripture is important for any age. Way to take the opportunity to not only benefit yourself, but also show your grandbabies that it's necessary no matter what age!

To reply to your comment - I really enjoy making the cards but I am not good at all at selling my cards. The best thing is anyone interested can email me and let me know what they are looking for and I can put a card package together for them... I do need to make some misc/random packs and post them on my Etsy store...

Wonderful photos! I really like the one of the cardinal; pretty enough to frame!
Way to go with the 5K!
What a chubby chunk of little boy Zion is :-)
Haven't had time yet to look at what you sent via e-mail but hope to today!

Where do you find your time???? A 5k run????? Your photos are wonderful, yes indeed. And going back to your last entry, I love the story from your mother's letter about Evita. Fantastic! This is why we save letters! I think Malachi looks like you.

Wow! You had an adventure-filled week, didn't you?

Cardinals' red feathers contrast so nicely with the greenery around them. I LOVE watching our cardinals...

I'm impressed with your 5K Run! You go!!!
