a week in review.

A much accomplished week, indeed!

-flowers are planted.
-our composter [a sweet craigslist buy!] is up and running.
-our yard is slightly less jungle-like.
-a birthday party for our buddy, Kirkland...who turned 1!
-a walk through World Vision's AIDS exhibit: truly moving.
-strawberries picked [and devoured]
-a trip to the farmer's market

other exciting news....my tomato plants are growing like champs.

It feels good to be back into the swing of things here. We've had a weekend off together [in Raleigh] for the first time in a long time. There was much to do! [unfortunately, no pictures were taken along the way.]

that's our life.
love to all.

Where have we been?!


Michigan & Florida!
For a birth, a funeral, and a vacation...

Our computer is finally fixed [thanks, Alan!] and at last, I downloaded our pictures! Here is a glimpse into our life the last month! [In reverse order!]

We spent 10 days in Florida, with Brendan and Courtney, visiting my grandparents.
A taste of paradise, indeed!
in our Sunday best...awkward & windy.
We spent endless hours on the seawall...we spotted dolphins, manatee, sea slugs and skate.
We saw alligators...and we ate some too! [it tastes like chicken.]
Dinner at Snook Inn...delicious.
love my bro.
us.


and a few Michigan pictures...
Grandpa and sweet little "B"
The Bonthuis clan...with the newest addition!
We missed you, Jim!

And...that's it!
back to reality...

with LOVE.
