Ben's new apprentice.
I just had to smile watching them
and then watching the other boys in the living room. I found Evan reading one of his library books to Carter. It was so sweet, I had to snap a picture.
Then they saw O-Man and Derek with the headlamps and had to try it out themselves.
Turns out, they are also very useful for reading books in poorly lit living rooms.

My first born had his first field trip, and his first visit to the library today. We live in a small town, and the library is actually located in an old house, which is kind of neat. I had to help him focus....even though it's a small library, he was overwhelmed by all the choices and didn't know where to start. But he finally made his choices, and he wasted no time after we got home and had lunch, reading all 4 of them right away. He can't wait to go back and get more books. As his mom and his teacher, I'm thrilled to see his love of reading. And he's feeling so accomplished to be able to pick up books and read them.
I read alot when I was a kid, and I always had a hard time putting a book down. Maybe he's inheriting my love of a good book.

"Up from the grave he arose, with a mighty triumph o'er His foes. He arose a victor from the dark domain and He lives forever with His saints to reign. Hallelujah! Christ arose!"
My precious family
after a great day celebrating Christ's resurrection with our special church family
(we were minus a few smiles....apparently, the sunshine was just too bright on this beautiful day!)
Carter (3 1/2)
Owen (2 1/2) with his Aunt KK. He loves her.
We had a nice ham dinner with Nana and Papa, and my sister Kristin. Then my sister, Dad and I took a walk to walk it all off while Evan lead on his bike. Such a beautiful Easter Day, almost feels like summer!
Thank you Lord for giving your life for me, forgiving me of my sin, and in your resurrection, giving me a purpose to live, and providing the certain hope of eternity with You. "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Life is worth living just because He lives."
