Spring has sprung since my last post! We are enjoying the warmer temperatures and have been fascinated watching the drainage ditches filling with water. Of course, if there is flooding in the area it won't be fun, but for now it's just amazing to see all the water running!

Kevin and Kaleb had a rather ingenious idea for a raft, which they finally got to float today. Thanks to the extra weeks of cold weather they've had time to collect a LOT of empty bottles to float a pallet Garry picked up for them. This afternoon an older gentleman stopped by when they were playing in the ditches and told them that was the kind of fun he remembered having as a boy!

Another exciting thing that's happened since my last post is that we got a new computer! This little machine is quite a bit faster than our old computer and we are so thankful for it! However, most days I find out there's something I still don't know how to do. Today when I imported my pictures from my camera I realized there is a new program for that.

thanks for the great idea on how to solve my issues, but I don't think it's going to happen quite like you are imagining.

it's an age thing. you'll understand one day!
