Spring Break

During spring break this year, Marley and I kept busy.
We visited Grandpa D. at his home, and Papaw at his library.  Marley was excited that she knew how to use the programs on Papaw's computer because they have the same one on her computer at preschool.
She got to stay with different friends three days that week, because I had classes.  The local firemen came and flushed the hydrants at our apartment complex, which she thought was incredibly cool.  They brought a couple of fire engines and an ambulance for the kids to see.  Marley wanted her picture taken with the fire Chief (who happens to be the father of one of my friends!).
They handed out coloring books and fire helmets...
...which she promptly filled with dandelions!

It was a great week.  We got to spend a lot of quality time together, and I was blessed by those who reached out to watch her while I was in classes.  Moving to Indiana has been tough at times, and it's nice to know there are people here who, just like in Michigan, have my back when it comes to helping me in a rough patch.  I love you, my friends and family!
That being said~ I think we were both happy to see Monday roll back around with its familiar routines and structure!


  1. It looks like Marley thoroughly enjoyed her spring break, and I'm guessing that her enthusiasm warmed your mama-heart and brought you joy.

    I completely understand Marley's interest in hydrant-flushing. I'm a *bit* older than she is, but I still love to watch--in fact, it's usually the highlight of that week for me. :-)

  2. She always has something she's doing. Such a smart kiddo.


What's on your mind?
