So sorry for the delay in posts! Daddy gave our computer a "spring cleaning," and I've just got the photo-related stuff back up. :)
It's so charming to have Bluebirds!

 And even more so to have Scissor-tailed Flycatchers!

 A gorgeous misty morning not too long ago...

 One of the cats caught this adorable snake and brought him inside -- Micah carefully removed him to the outdoors, where he belonged. :)

 The guys got a lot of stuff cleaned up around the shop!

 Stepping outside to go for an evening walk, I noticed our three cats -- then did a double-take. For there were four cats -- all of them matching!!!!
 Can you tell which one doesn't belong to us?

This one is the "imposter."
We haven't seen him again, but it sure was funny that he found the one house in miles (maybe in the world ;) that has three cats of his color! ;)

 This Spring has been SO beautiful!

 I love how lush, thick green grass looks!

N. C. Wyeth has long been a favorite of mine for his vivid, strikingly-posed illustrations. Here are a few patriotic-themed ones I came across recently (I was going to wait for July 4th to post them, but didn't want to wait that long!):

Sunday afternoon, some of us visited an older neighbor, Mr. S., to tell him Nathaniel's happy news!

The lilies Daddy gave me for my birthday are still beautiful!

Green springs up everywhere...

A puddle of gold. :)

And... my new camera!!!! Canon very nicely gave me this upgrade since my almost-a-year-old camera broke! I am very happy! :)


Daddy was up when the lunar eclipse happened, so all these marvelous pics were taken by him! :)

Really quite good, don't you think?!?!

And this was the next morning, when I woke up. ;)

Sherman symphony -- Ben and the principal of the 2nd violins. The SSO concert is coming up next weekend!

The Weekend :)

Deborah made this little design on my plate on my birthday...how cute!

The flowers Dad gave me! :)

Ben's present to me...

And other presents. Everyone was so sweet and generous!

"Boating" on our pond!

Need your windows washed, anyone? Micah does a good job!

We played a fun writing game

Deborah & Ben collaborated on my birthday cake :)

How grateful I am for the many, many blessings God has given me! It is all far more than I deserve.

Some of us went to the Bonham Library Book Sale! It's always so fun!

Kolton A. came over, and had fun in the pond with Debs and Stephen

Some girls at church decided to match this Sunday, and curl their hair -- and were sweet enough to invite me to join them! It was fun! :) :)

Caroline, Debs, Katherine, Anna, & me

We had fun talking at church...

Micah & Andrew Y. are having fun!

Two little girls talking... ;)
