I babysat tonight for a few hours. Those kids kept me in a sweat all evening! :o) Tried to get Easter egg pictures, but Grace was the only one who cooperated, and only for a second. Then I forgot to open my flash! So, the photo is grainy and not as nice as I was hoping. Oh well, I'll try again another day.
The snow is melting and it is "mud city" everywhere. Today I could see where Greg gouged the yard with the Bobcat. Argh. Under the snow, the grass is bright green. This has been great moisture that was badly needed.
Better get to bed. Another busy day tomorrow...

My coworker and friend, Kathleen Gierhart, slipped away early yesterday evening. She'd fought a brain tumor since last summer and found out two weeks ago that her battle was lost. I last saw her an hour before she passed and take comfort in knowing she went peacefully.
I knew her for 10 years. Kathy was a friend and caregiver to everyone, always ready with a hug, or funny story, or a homemade goodie of some kind. She took good care of us at Head Start, loving when the kids called her "Kaffy". She so enjoyed renovating whatever home she and Russell were living in, making it a warm and welcoming place to visit. Even so, she never stayed home! They were always gone visiting family or friends on the weekends, having fun and making wonderful memories.
Rest well, my friend. May the loving arms of our Lord wrap around you and keep you in peace until we meet again.
