As I sit here in beautiful Florida with my sister and her family I have a few moments to update my blog! I promise I'll include some pictures from my time here soon, but for now a Spring Break update!
We had a wonderful week at home highlights included:
A chance to hear author Greg Mortenson speak at Grand Valley. He is the author of the adults books, "Three Cups of Tea" and "Stones into Schools" and children's book "Listen to the Wind". He is the founder of the Pennies for Peace program that we have been working on since last August. The kids made t-shirts and were thrilled to see/hear him in person. A lot of his talk was over their heads, but they were attentive and enthusiastic the entire 2 1/2 hours! It was amazing! If you haven't heard of his work, check it out!
We also got to head in to Grand Rapids to see the 'Big Big Bugs' exhibit!
The kids loved having friends over and playing at home!
More photos soon!!

Hope you're having a wonderful time with Laura and her family! I'm thankful for the extra time with your kids this week :)

p.s. I couldn't figure out that first picture until I read what you wrote about the bug exhibit. Sounds like fun!
