Can You Believe It????

We have been having some weird things happen lately with the weather. The TV stations all say we are in a "Spring Monsoon" which usually happens in July and August. So, ok we're getting alot of rain. that is not the usual scenario her for May. Its always sunny and warm during the day and cool at night. So Tuesday, when it started to rain I thought, "No big deal, just another crappy afternoon." then things got really ugly. the hail started coming down and would not quit.Hail is a big thing here because, 1) we usually don't get any and 2) when it comes, it just beats down everybody's fields and destroys crops and anything in its way. Hail came down from at least 20 minutes. As you can see by the pictures, it looks like snow! I had to run home and check my plants and luckily, they didn't get damaged. Terry was worried about his jalapeno peppers, but they were ok too. Please let there be some warm weather here soon!

His Hands...

I want to show this to my Seminary students as the finale for this year's study of the New Testament. What do you think?

Happy Mothers Day...

I had a great Mother's Day this year. Devin and Angela went to denver and left Sarah with us. she was so much fun to be with! She is growing up so fast and wants to be everywhere and in everything. She loves the climbing wall and learned pretty quickly how to open the door to get outside. She is such a big girl!
