Mahna Mahna

Dear Friends and Family,

The women at church are fans of Little Brother.  They wanted to tell Sweetheart and I how close he is to crawling.  Little Brother can get into the push-up position and he can rock back and forth on his knees.  Big Brother's baseball is coming to a close next week.  This summer he is to work on his circus skills.  He has some stilts named "Crazy Legs" and a juggling set.  Sweetheart has begun the restoration of the yard pond.  She is determined to beautify our lives here on the Moraine.  I am so thankful for my wife.

Mamo visited last weekend.  There are so many great moments to celebrate but my favorite is taking her photograph with Little and Big.  Every time she visits us, she tells me that this life was meant for me.  Thank you Grandma!

Everything is protected except the house mice.  Alley Cat is earning her keep.
