April was a busy month for us. It was filled with lots of company and lots of work around the homestead while we tend the ground God has given us. My sister and her large family visited us during Spring Break and the next week Michael's niece, Crystal and her two boys visited us on their Spring Break. My in-laws also came up to see her while she was here. It was so fun having everyone.
I had a fun 39th birthday, even though Michael wasn't home for it. Mom and Larry made me dinner, took me shopping for a parasol to go with my Civil War outfit, and then they watched the kids for me so I could go to a contra dance. Oh, did I dance, too! So much fun to kick up my heels with old friends. Missed my hubby though, but the nice thing about contra dancing is you don't need to go with a partner.
Michael was gone all of March and half of April for a military training, so he missed out on all the company. However, he got to come home to a newly built shop! In the picture above, Hailey is sweeping out the shop in preparation for her Daddy to come home and see it for the first time.
Hailey is pointing out their hand prints in the cement. I didn't even have to tell Michael to smile for the camera. He was in heaven! As you can see behind Michael, there is a lot of landscaping and seeding that needs to be done, and we are working on it, a little at a time. Seeing more green every day.
So good to have Michael home again!
I am one blessed lady! I got to the children's museum and realized I had forgotten my cellphone. All of a sudden I remembered I had left it on the top of the truck at home while taking care of a child's misbehavior. For some reason I felt led to look at the winch on the front of the truck and there it was riding, all the way from my house to downtown. Whew!!!
God Bless, Jackie
