On Wednesday, our (Matthew's) cousin Amy came for a visit. My kids LOVED her...she played and read with them, helped bathe and feed them, and was great company for all of us! What a treat it was for us to have her here and how sad we were this morning to take her to the airport! Caroline has been asking for her all day long!

Great Find

For the last two or three weeks, a bird had been trying to build a nest on our front window sill (at the top of the window). Unfortunately, there is nothing to hold it in place. It is a flat piece and the wind blows it down daily. All that is resulting is a mess for me and frustration for her. My mom had a nest this year with three chicks and I was hoping that this bird would get it's act together so Caroline would have babies to check on, but no such luck...until yesterday.

We found his sweet little nest near her new swing set. It was complete with egg shell pieces! We might have missed the full eggs and little birds, but we sure enjoyed finding this!
