The Countdown Begins

It's the beginning of the end. That's right... only about two weeks of school left for us! Our goal is to be done by the end of next week, in time for the Birthday Bash/ End of the Year Recital.

This past Saturday we had Spring Cleaning over at the church in the a.m., then a picnic, then another couple and our family went to get flowers to plant in the boxes and alongside the walkway. We ended working some in the rain, but when we got done we were pleased. We used that reddish mulch and it really set things off. As we stood at the end of the walkway looking up towards the church, it looked very warm and welcoming... until you got TO the church. We need to put up a couple of cheerful wreaths or a big viney swag or something.

We also got some plantings for our Memorial garden, and some tomato plants for the veggie garden. We got the plaque in the mail Saturday as well. If it wasn't raining when we got done over at church I would have gone ahead and done more work in the memorial garden, but the weather didn't permit that.

Today is another rainy day, so it won't get done today. Hopefully tomorrow will clear up a bit. Apparently we are getting all the rain we should have had in April, now.

Yesterday at church we had a special speaker, Tom Simcox, from Friends of Isreal in. He brought his wife Lorena, who is "pure" Jewish, converted. She wrote a book about her conversion, and they gave our family a copy, so I will be reading that soon. He is very informative, and knowledgable, and it was a great blessing to have them in. Unfortunately, they couldn't stay for the evening service, but had to leave after our Fellowship Dinner to drive 5 or 6 hours.

Today's agenda is simple... schoolwork, and a ton of laundry!
