Spring is in the air! The weather has been beautiful. The doors are open to let in fresh air. The kids can play outside again (although Clark still begs for a movie every day!). And the new chicks have arrived. We know they'll grow up to be . . . um, well, . . . not so cute. But for now, they are so adorable. Here's a picture of Gracie holding a couple of them.
As Roger mentioned in his last post, it is also much quieter here. The crowing of all the roosters is gone. We had a great dinner of chicken and dumplings the other night, plus we have a couple in the freezer. Now, if I could just get Gloria to sleep for more than 6 hours at night, I'd be set. (Not just a 6 hour stretch, but a total of 6 hours--thankfully all in one stretch most of the time.) On the bright side, when I'm up with her, I no longer have to listen to the annoying chorus of crowing roosters!
Most likely we'll still have a winterish day or so still to come. But God is so good to give us breaks from the hard winter. I love Texas where the winters are short and the summers are long and warm. Remind me of this in August when a glass of ice water can help me cool off. A hot cup of tea never helps me. I just seem to burn my tongue!
