us6 for a day

Spring break means a change in routine,
and opportunities to do some special things...

Like becoming a family of six
while Michael's little buddy M spends the day with us!

Michael and M on the way to our house
It's been a very long time since we've had a little man around the house.

Stirring up a batch of pancakes
His little eyes see all that is new and exciting about the world,
challenging us to remember the wonder...

A piggy back ride up the street
Even a ride in a taxi is full of endless delight and excitement.

Counting all the other taxis on the road!
With a little downtime to rest,

and time to play with friends,

A rousing game of Duck Duck Goose
it was a full and wonderful day.
Thanks for sharing it with us, M!

You won my heart by bringing me a beautiful flower!
We're so thankful for the community of family we share,
a true fulfillment of Jesus' promise in Luke:

“Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to them, 
“no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children 
for the sake of the kingdom of God  
will fail to receive many times as much in this age, 
and in the age to come eternal life.”
Luke 18:29-30

Hope you'll enjoy spring break! (or that you DID enjoy it!) Mine is this coming week, and I'm so happy to have a chance of pace, a foretaste of summer!

Michael makes a great buddy. Samuel asked the other day about "Big Michael". He made quite an impression on our little one.
