First Day-May 2014

First off let me say, PLEASE visit Nicole’s blog and send her your positive thoughts, prayers, etc.  She had a rather unexpected first day which ended up with a hospital admittance for her son Gabe.  The girl is humble as can be but I assure you that she is nothing short of amazing!!!  Thinking of you Nicole!!


Now onto our First Day!  Enjoy!

With Paul’s work schedule, he doesn’t have much time for projects OR with the kids.  We put Hattie to bed and let the oldest two come outside with us while we did some chores.  They walked back in the woods to see how full our ponds were and listened to the frogs and birds settle in for the night.  They were happy as can be.  Sleep can happen any night but these memories with their daddy are priceless!!


I hope you all had a wonderful first day too!!!




  1. Paul looks so different with his hair cut! Thanks for the encouragement. For sure not how I wanted to spend our day, but glad we came in. He is mad at the world today but the fluid is slowing down. He'll be feeling better in no time.

  2. Looks like a fantastic 1st day!! I just might have to join you in the Northwoods soon. Maybe I will take a week day off from work and just come spend the day...
