Easter egg decorating
Days together at home
Egg hunting (and the kids who still love it)
Sailing for a boy who has been anxious to get back on the water
Lamb loving
Chick preparations
Fresh bread
Maple syrup (our own)
Walks through new territory
Sun and the first warm breeze

It is good to remind ourselves of the goodness in each day, in every weekend and prepare ourselves for the week ahead.

After an evening of games, food and all out celebrating with friend and grandparents, Joseph and Audrey set off for an afternoon of fishing. Although no fish were caught, the discovery of a ditch full of fish eggs was reward enough. Happy Birthday Joseph!

It has been almost a year since the last post here and I have been trying to figure out how to start again. Starting with where we are today would be too easy. We have done so much, seen so much and accomplished more than seems possible. we are! After a year of camping, building, working, building, playing, building and generally living, we are in a house. There was a lot of camping. Six months actually, but even more building. Every step was exciting. Who knew that walls could make me smile and doors could make a kid's day. We were all thrilled to have an indoor toilet not to mention a shower! We are happy to be here.
