When the sun is shining, the farmers are planting fast and furiously. Farmers keep very close watch on the weather, and are always ready to share weather predictions, weather sayings, and weather history. They can actually remember the year it rained, the year it didn't rain, and a every possible variety of combinations. Farming is the definition of faith.
Jim took a step of faith when he signed up for the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. With very little training, he picked up his packet on Friday, and picked out a running outfit later that evening.
I was happy, however, to join little Miss Ella to celebrate her 2nd birthday later that afternoon.
Ella Kate had her 2 year old checkup this week, and her mom sent me this cute picture.
On Monday, I went to help Jennifer and Bryan with some painting as they get the room ready for the new baby. They wanted horizontal stripes on one wall, so Bryan and I got busy taping and caulking the wall. All the measuring and taping made Jennifer nervous, so she excused herself to bake cookies. When in doubt, bake cookies!
The room is coming together, and of course, we rewarded ourselves with some delicious home-baked cookies. I'll be sure to post pictures of the finished product. (The room, not the cookies.)
On Wednesday, I enjoyed eating my lunch outside on a beautiful day in downtown Indianapolis.
