My, How Time Flies...

Well, THAT sure took a little longer than I expected....

What was supposed to be a short break of a week or so from blogging...quickly turned into one fast month,  thanks to the stomach flu, bronchitis, sinus infections & the accompanying doctor visits and sleepless nights....along with a house that really needed a good cleaning when all was said and done...meanwhile trying to keep up with the homeschooling and all our spring projects...

**whew**  am I glad that's over!

And yet, in the midst of all the chaos and crabbiness and cabin fever - there were as many good moments mingled in, too.  Sometimes it's works out alright to have a good reason to unplug from life-as-usual and slow down a bit.

Just a few pics to catch up a little.

starting seeds for the garden...

Cold finches!  Although, they are beginning to turn gold once again, too...

My Little Monkey turned 3!!
Daddy surprised him when he woke up with a big nerf gun, all his own!  I think he's still half-asleep in this pic.

General and Rose worked so hard to make it a special day for their little brother...thankfully he still takes good naps!

...and a little help from Mom, too...

More signs of spring...

 April showers bring May flowers, right?

Little Monkey's 'new' workboots - just like Daddy's...they actually used to be Geberal's, back from when he was just a little guy himself :)

That's enough for now!  More to come....boy, it's good to be back. :)


  1. I'm so sorry to hear you've had all that sickness, Collette! That isn't fun. But as you said, it looks like you've also had some beautiful moments as well.

    I love all the photos of your children planting and creating things.

    I really like your new blog design, as well. It looks very earthy and homey. :)

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Things are pretty busy around our house, so I can't always leave as many replies as I would like to. But please know that I look forward to reading every note you send my way - they brighten my day! Blessings,Collette
