Spring Hodge-Podge

It was fun to see these colorful train engines one day.

A pastor from Papua New Guinea visited our area. M, B, and our pastor showed him around.
He enjoyed seeing a Kansas farm first-hand.

Pastor C takes a break!
This is taken at Alcove Springs, a stop along the Oregon Trail.

They also took him to the dairy where T used to work, checked out the calves, and helped with the milking!


Then it was back to our place for kite flying and our first picnic of the year!

Another Spring day in April the director of a day care in a nearby town asked M to come over and fly kites with the kids. Good thing B, B's sister K, and I went along to help. They've mostly gone back inside now, but there were bunches of kids who tried their hands at flying kites!


We celebrated Easter at K and A's, their first time hosting family for a holiday. They did a fine job!


A trunk back of the van full of Spring!


Sarah Circle handed out the pansies after church for May Day gifts.

Yes, though it took its sweet time getting here, Spring has sprung

A Quest, or Four

I took part in the Kansas Senior Spelling Bee again this year. The sign that greeted us made us smile!


Unfortunately, I didn't make it out of the written round.

But my "Quests" were great support anyway.Thanks for being there K, A, Mom and B.
Maybe next year I can make it to the oral rounds once more!
