I'M BACK

Wow! I have been busy since Easter. Where does the time go?
My Mom went back home Tuesday, after visiting for a week. It was so great to spend time with her. We went to lunch together, shopped, read magazines, made bracelets, and enjoyed each other's company immensely. Oh, and of course the kids loved having Grandma at the house to play with! I was so sad to see her go. I will miss her terribly. I look forward to the next time, when my Dad can come as well. Thanks for everything Mom, I love you!


On the day my mom left, I went on a school field trip with these two characters! The art club raised money for a trip to the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
I loved to watch Abby and Jacob take in all the beautiful art. There were so many things to
see---


Like this---



and this-----


and that!
But, of course there wasn't time to see it all. We'll just have to make a point to go back and experience it as a whole family.
I studied many of these paintings in college, but when you see them in person, the colors, the layers upon layers of paint, the stories that are told through each piece--- it is a whole other experience! It was absolutely breathtaking!
Thank you Abby and Jacob, for sharing your day with me!

Gorgeous little kidsters you got there Kel! I've never been to the art museum here. Thanks for the reminder that I need to go. I'm sure it doesn't compare with anything around there though!

Hey! We'll be driving to the MD Sheep & Wool Festival in style! I traded one of my kids, oops, I mean my old van, for a new van! We are so looking forward to going. As usual, the pictures are beautiful. Abby and Jacob look so happy. It must've been dad's homemade bread!
