1. Our friend Leslie let us catch some polliwogs from her pond, and then helped the kids find some water plants to feed them. They’re all doing well in a jar in the kitchen windowsill, and we’re looking forward to watching them grow arms and legs.
3. See how good the chairs look filled with friends? We really enjoyed having our new neighbors, Dan and Amber and their girls, next door for the last month-and-a-half. Many good conversations, shared dreams, and games played.
6. It’s really neat to watch storms from our place. One night recently there was a big one going on east of us and another one going on north of us at the same time. While we watched under blue skies, we could see lightning coming out of the clouds in these pictures, and the people in those areas were getting hail the size of quarters. We got a storm at our place a few days later and I captured one of the lightning flashes, which lit up the yard almost like daytime.
