Thought #1: It never ceases to amaze me how the beauty of nature (even tiny, bright golden birds) can remind us of how God watches out for even the small.
Thought #2: Oddly, after all we went through to get this little tree here, it doesn't seem to be making it in our yard. Hmmm....Spider revenge?
Thought #3: A couch is an excellent stage, especially when your cousin is accompanying you on the piano. (this shot was taken "unawares"...I love doing that to the kids!)
Thought #4: What is he thinking about?
Thought #5: Never knew how handy a stool could be for entertaining small children. Here you can see it in use as a chair/desk combo.
Thought #6: Girls have more shoes than boys. Even when they are only three. Sorry, boys.
(Ellie's shoes are the back row. Can you see Josh's three shoes at the other end? Second row? Waaay down there?)
ps. only because I can't help myself... just so you don't think I bought all these shoes....95% of them are hand-me-downs or garage sale finds. Em, recognize any of these?
Thought # 7: I love swings. Warm spring evenings. And a Hubs who actually thinks to capture a quiet, sweet moment between Mom and her baby.
