A New Season

Erik and I both feel like breathing a sigh of relief at the end of this week. Life has been really busy for us over the past 2 months. It was mostly due to our involvements with TREK leadership which sometimes took up 3 evenings a week. As of this week, the TREK-ers have departed on their various assignments and our duties as leadership are officially finished. What a great experience, but the busy-ness has been taxing on us and on the kids, so we're glad to enter this next season which will hopefully be a little less hectic.

And speaking of seasons, I saw some definite signs of spring in the backyard this afternoon...


Micah and I haven't played outside together much since Keziah was born, but we took advantage of a few moments of sunshine (or more accurately, no rain) this afternoon while Keziah was napping.



Keziah was being a fussy-pants yesterday so I tried putting on one of our Baby Einstein videos. She was interested in it for a short while and then that was it. I love this new shirt that her Auntie Rosanna gave her. It's size 6-12 months!! I'm sure it must've shrunk in the laundry when I washed it the other day... I'm hoping it'll last until summer time, but with the way she's growing who knows!

Jamie - these pictures are incredible. I love all of them! They look professional. Micah looks so handsome and grown up and Keziah looks perfect in that little shirt. Spring or summer... a girl has got to look good! Your kids are so perfect!

I am so jealous of the flowers already popping out there. That is one thing about BC....we've been having great weather (it's supposed to be 19 on Sunday!!), but it will be a while yet before we get blossoms or leaves on the trees. It gets too cold at night :( Great pictures of your kids. They are just so darn cute!

I like the flowers in your garden. I found a sign the other day too. Robins were in the yard so I took a few pictures. Those pictures are so neat.
