It's cold and rainy, Jackson's sick and we're exhausted after a long week of "team therapy" (a tune-up week with Jerry and Gail Heiderich). The incredibly heavy rain is causing all sorts of problems around town, including mudslides and roof collapses. Though our apartment is high and dry, we're struggling to keep the church building from being completely inundated with rainwater. Our roof seems to have decided that it's done and is no longer accepting patch jobs. But it's virtually impossible to do anything about that until the rain lets up for a few days, not to mention the fact that every mason in town is working overtime fixing everyone else's roofs!

I'm still trying to catch up on last month's posts. Here are some pictures from Easter:

The kids following their egg hunt:
Aubry, Jackson, Ceara and Calen

(We called it the first ever "Naked Egg Hunt" because we had stripped the kids down to dye eggs and never bothered to dress them up again.)

Naked Egg Hunt. I *like* it. ;oD

Val, I'm sorry about you and Jackson being so sick! I read on FB about the thrush ickiness. I hope all is well again soon!!!

Medicinal-type hugs,

P.S. Interestingly enough, my word verification letters spell "valling." ;o)
