There was a cloud over the week as we processed the loss of Shaun's grandfather. But spring still arrived (yay!!) and we got up each day and did the things that life asks of us. And there was joy in the sorrow and beauty in the mundane.
DQ helped us celebrate the first day of spring with free cones!
And the snow was not a deterrent for the kids to play in the park.
When Gavin's mom gave him to me, she told me he has lots of new tricks on the floor if we wanted to see. Without her saying something, the baby might have been 3 years-old before he was out of arms long enough to show us his stuff. :) As it happened, the kids took great delight in watching him move.
WAY too much slime in my life these days....its all the rage in 5th grade.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.
Pausing in the crazy to snuggle with my girl who continues to grow and age right before my eyes.
Two super sweet, super handsome boys at Great-Grandpa's wake.
Just the three.
Cousins...so blessed to have known their great-grandpa!
My crew...looking their best for the funeral.
