This week is spring break for my teenagers and last week was spring break for my daughter and her boyfriend, (college kids) so they came up to visit us for the week...and so did their laundry! I really enjoyed their company and they had fun with little brother and sister, playing board games, video games (ugh!) watching movies, enjoying my cooking, and even installed a new car stereo together. They also had some fun with my camera so I thought I would share some of these photos today. I have a feeling I will see my teenagers in this position most of this week too, enjoying their time off school. As for me, I'm still looking forward to spring...first signs are showing up finally and that restores my spirit, but nothing compares to sharing time with my kids.

Birds and trees are two of my favorite things and we were honored by another sunny morning (wow! 2 in a row!) so capturing the moment of these two little birds in the redbud tree was really something special today. I don't know which generation of these pretty birds are, but we usually see a nest near the door about this time of year and soon will have 4 little babies in the nest to watch, and Emily is always interested in this event. Listen to the beautiful sounds of nature! After such a strangely cold and snowy winter (for the South and the rest of the country) it's wonderful to see signs of Spring and to notice these beautiful fingerprints of God today...the birds nesting, the redbud tree with new buds that will bloom by next month and look absolutely beautiful with its pink flowers, and of course, the bright blue sky that is so inviting to enjoy with a walk through nature.
