"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do." -Edward Everett Hale

Tea Time

I always try my best to stretch Mother's Day out as long as possible. 

And the season is off to a great start after a Mother's Day Tea at the girls' school...


Now I wonder what the boys have planned?

F is for Field Trip

It's day F on Piper's ABC countdown. The original plan was to celebrate with Flip-Flop day. 

However, the teachers realized this day coincided with a field trip. So, in the interest of little toes, they decided it might not be the best idea to have 100 first graders clomping around the Newport Aquarium. 

It's a good thing F is for Field Trip too. 

And even better that I was able to tag along. 


There was so much to see and do, but they certainly saved the best for last. 

The Shark Bridge. Did we dare cross it?


Yes we did...


And lived to tell about it.

ABC Countdown

This week marked the beginning of the ABC Countdown to the last day of school.

That's 26 days for anyone who's counting.

I know I am.

And so is this girl, celebrating C day with some pink and Crazy Hair...


Z is in sight and I think we're gonna make it.

Spring Has Sprung

At time for boys to be boys...


And everything to look a little prettier while they're at it...

Easter Excitement

It was the very first egg hunt for a barefoot boy...


An unfortunate disguise for a goofy girl...


And a fight to the finish for every last egg...


And though it may look a little different each year, the main thing never changes...

Jesus is Alive and He's Coming Back!

Until then, on Easter Day, and every day, we wait, we watch, and we pray. 

And we give praise to the One who makes it all worthwhile.

In a loud voice they were saying: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"
Revelation 5:12
