Deborah has been giving tea parties every month this year, and April's theme was our solar system!
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19
It is so sweet of Deborah to work so hard to make a fun and relaxing time for all us to spend together! (And everything so yummy too!)
Kathryn can already read being only 4 (!), and Daniel thinks that since he just turned 3, he can read now too!
A very happy David!
"Here, you can eat some too..."
( We truly didn't let him eat any!)
(One of my favorites!)
Ruth is teething and loves to suck on ice when her gums are bothering her--it is awfully cute!
I will end with the quote from which this rose is named...
"This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."
--William Shakespeare, "King Richard II", Act 2 scene 1
