Lilacs are one of my favorites, along with peonies, and ranunculus. With the warm weather we experienced a few weeks ago, these beauties bloomed early, almost a month early. I love to bring huge bouquets into the house, you can smell the sweet smell as soon as you open the door....what a treat.
Seems like it has been really busy around here lately. The boys are all in track this Spring and have started off their season well. The girls are doing great. June has been learning about Easter at preschool and can tell the whole Easter story. Her teachers made Resurrection eggs and shared how to pray The Stations of the Cross. What a blessing it has been to see her embrace and begin to understand the beauty of Easter. Kendall has been on a different journey this week, LOL! My strong spirited little one has learned how to get out of the house, quietly I might add. Needless to say, we now have door chimes on all the doors. I keep trying to embrace her zest for life and nurture it, some days are hard. Yesterday, while at TJ's track meet, she kept running towards the pole vaulters (no doubt trying to get to her brother). When I would finally catch her, she runs really fast, she would yell, "HELP ME"! Yep, "HELP ME", loud and strong....how does she come up with this stuff?
Russ and I are trying to go with the flow. We are still trying to sell our house and buy a different one. It has been a long and stressful journey and seems to consume lots of my time and energy. One of my friends once said, "Buying houses is not for sissies", she was right! Whatever the end, I am holding tight to the fact that God's plan is better than mine and the journey we are on will bring us to the best possible place for our family. All I have to do is be patient. Did I mention patience is not one of my strengths.......
Wishing you a Blessed Easter weekend!
