Spring is here!

It's official, spring is here on the Trail.  We have had rain, big thunderstorms, and some beautiful, unexpected sunshine sprinkled in this week. Our iris are just starting to bloom and they remind me of God's creativity and ability to make a masterpiece out of nothing but black dirt.  The colors of spring always make me happy and I try and bring as much of it inside as possible or spend as much time outside as possible.  

There were some crazy storms this week and luckily the worst of them missed us. Luke is a tad bit scared of thunder aka 'boomers', as is our precious ridiculous dog, Abel, so it was an interesting week of midnight soothings. Poor Kevin is in charge of both Luke and Abel, so he hasn't had many full nights of sleep this week.  He is surely my better half.

This week we had a lot of 'to dos', but found time for some trips to the library, a picnic, and time with friends.  I even snuck away to Cooking Club, which is one of my absolute favorite days every month.  Today we are heading to Ottumwa to watch my nephew's baseball game.  We have never seen him play and are grateful to have the opportunity to spend some extra time with him and show our kiddos a game they will probably never play unless they really really really really want to.  #summersaresacred  

Hooray for Friday and another spring weekend.  Isn't it just the best time of year?!  Hope you all have a blessed weekend!
