It has been a full five days. We have:
- Watched two of our kids perform in Tom Sawyer. I heard secondhand about this conversation: My son cornered the director of the homeschool theater group and told her that he wanted a bigger part in next year’s production. “Can you remember your lines?” Good question.
- We had a party!
- My sister and her boyfriend stayed with us for a few days. So much joy when they visit; my son was kissing his aunt the entire time.
- We celebrated my son’s birthday. Seven!
I intentionally abstained from blogging, but boy oh boy have I missed being here. Here are some photos of our hike. We found marsh marigold, buttercups, peppermint, solomon’s seal, trilliums and mayapples all in bloom. Enjoy spring in Michigan.
