Eternal Increase

I love this picture. It is rare for all of the grandchildren to be together. They look like they could all be from one family. Missing kisses!

What Is Age?

I wonder what it is like having no beginning and no end, where age isn't an issue. A couple of days ago a young student of Ashley's told your father and me that she couldn't wait until she was old so she could just sell her house and move anywhere she wanted. Then in choir on Sunday I was late, actually I completely forgot choir practice or that we were singing, and quickly ran up to the stand to sit with the choir. I told the lady next to me that I really spaced it. She said, "I can't wait until I am 50 so I can say that." Well, really. So the above picture is how I really feel. I used to think I felt like I was 25 but that is no longer true. I feel like I am that short banged little girl. I am just spacey and moving where I want. That is all.

Is Summer Over?

We woke up to these images this morning--snow on Y mountain as well as Squaw Peak. BURRRRR! But it is warming up today and as you can see below the flowers survived and everything is squeaky clean. Life is good!

My Father's Other Life

This is a photo of Virginia Driggs Clark, my father's first wife who died of breast cancer. I am anxious to meet her some day. I have read many of her writings before she died. I was not only impressed with her great testimony and courage in the face of death but also her optimism. She left behind five children, two of whom were very young. It changed everyone's life because of her death, especially mine. Below is a story written by Carol when my father was principal in a very small town in Arizona.

Finally we have the new battery for the camera so here are the much requested photos of the new floor. Ben is fixing lunch on the new stove. Kurt painted these chair bright green to temporarily tide us over until we move.

Here is a view of the former piano room with our new Fidalis painting.

We moved the piano into the living since there isn't a lot of furniture in this room now. It looks nice with the black furniture.
