Last Highschool Week for Melissa

This week Melissa finishes up her Year End Tests and then she will graduate from Highschool so to speak. This photo was taken on her first day of school (Kindergarden) 12 years ago. Where did the time go?? But I remember when I took the picture I thought already, time will fly and soon she will be out of school. Well ... the day is here. She is happy ... on to bigger and better things...

Butterfly Heaven!

This morning we came out of the house and our lawn was covered with butterflies, like I have never seen it before. They were flying all around and it was really neat to see! They must like the dandelions.

Found Something New!

On my walk yesterday I noticed this little flower, that I have never seen before and it seems to be the only one around! After some research we found out that is is a "Trout Lily".  Very happy about this find!

Thank you for the cross Lord...

...thank you for the price you paid... this is from a song, I am always reminded of the cross when I walk by here in our little forest.
