Happy May 18th!  What does this day hold for you?  David, Cora and I get to walk over to our neighbors' house two streets over to enjoy muffins in their backyard celebrating the end of school and beginning of summer!  We're really excited.

magical day with the budgies

Towards the end of our trip to the zoo today we went into the budgie feeding area and the experience was really magical with the kids.  They were bold and brave in feeding them and patient in waiting for them.  They delighted in this encounter with nature and I'm so glad I got to be there to see it.  

Thank you, Nana for taking us to the zoo!

"As you make time different this week, may your rest be a sweet surrender from your work, a letting go and leaning in to listen and linger longer. Rest and put a smile on God’s face. Let’s choose presence with Him over business as usual and celebrate enduring faithfulness." - Shelly Miller, Sabbath Society
