Really Random Thursday, 5/5/22

Let's begin with some cute little pansies. I find pansies to be some of the happiest little flowers.

I particularly adore the little ruffly ones.

Just when they are really blooming, it's time to take them out and plant begonias that will bloom through the summer. It's important to get them started before the heat really sets in.

Saturday I attended Levi's championship swimming meet.

He did well individually, and his school got first place.

Best friend, Mason.

On Sunday, my brother and sister-in-law arrived from Washington DC. They had picked up their daughter, Elizabeth, who lives in San Francisco. At about the same time they pulled up, Aaron and Christa arrived with the kids to drop them off through Tuesday. Christa is finishing a residency which is part of her master's program. She graduates on Saturday with a master's in ministry, culture and leadership after a long three-year program. Aaron was able to attend with her for the first couple of days, and they were headed off to San Francisco. They got a chance to chat with Jeff, Gracie and Elizabeth for about 15 minutes, and we took a selfie.

Their three dogs were along with them, and the kids had so much fun hanging out with Hailey, Moose and Esteban.

My favorite photo.

Finally, books I read in April. I'm still really enjoying the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths. The Kite Runner was haunting. My least favorite was The Chocolatier--the story line was interesting but I was not fond of the writing style. Iron Lake is also the first in a series and I will be continuing that one as well. 

Until next Thursday...

Levi posed for photos!!! Congrats to him and his swim team. Congrats to Christa as well on her masters. Enjoy your time with family. I can't imagine traveling with 3 dogs. Are they all staying with you?
