Jump into Spring

Tim and Abbie's Easter photo shoot
I am taking a "5 Minute Friday" break this lovely spring morning before preparing for our Mother/Daughter Brunch at church. We used to have a Mother/Daughter Tea in May, but we live in Cottonwood, CA and some cowboy with a very odd sense of humor created the "Mother's Day Rodeo" and that includes parade and the "whole nine yards". So, through the years our brunch/tea has gotten farther and farther into April.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat on the prompt “After” with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog’s footer}.
3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you. Every writer longs to feel heard.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:



As Abbie and Tim jumped into the puddle, no bones were broken in the making of this photo,it is time to do some serious spring cleaning.
Today the window coverings, tomorrow the world.

Mary is 22 years old

Mary was 22 on Wednesday  Her second birthday away from home. She came by on Sunday for a "photo shoot" and cake. (It is nice to have an in house photographer.)

Johanna's new home

Last Friday Johanna and Abbie went to Humbolt and saw her "New Home".

Many changes are in store for our family in the next few months.

Time to jump into the program for the day with both feet.
Abbie went to Archaeology today with Tim for  BLM.
Ian went to hike a Shasta Bally with his friends.
Mary is in a pit crew for the Drag Races for Cool April Nights.

Poor little JR just has to stay home and watch every one come and go.

Even JR gets photo shots
