Here are 3 kids doing something that they love, spending time with Grampy and going to camp! It was school vacation week last week and Thursday afternoon Grampy loaded up the 3 eldest and headed for the woods. Thanks Dad!

So this little part of the country up here we call New England is a little on edge after yesterdays bombings at the Boston Marathon. What makes it so scary is that it happened on the streets I have walked down before. The ones I'd go bar hopping with friends who went to College just a short distance away. I thought back to those good times and now feel sadness because those streets are now scarred and will never be the same... I texted my friend Becky last night, I told her I wanted to give her a hug, for her and for her beloved Beantown. She now lives outside the city with her husband and two children and commutes to work, but these are her streets and I feel so sad that someone has broken them.

Finally Asa is feeling better! It has been a tough 7 days and now ending in pneumonia but thankfully antibiotics are doing the trick! As crummy as he felt he still really wanted to play outside.

|What a cute Red Sox fan :) Don't mind the brooder box in the background. Warmer weather needs to hurry up cause I'm tired of chickens in my dining room!|

Both boys were up throughout the night Monday. Gracyn has rallied, Asa has not. Poor guy gets to coughing, then gagging, then throwing up. He wasn't been able to keep anything down yesterday but did guzzle some pedialyte last evening and had some toast and cranberry juice this morning. So far it's stayed put!
|This is where he laid for 6 hours :(|

We did our final run of sap this weekend. Time to clean up and get ready for blooming things. We had a fun crowd and good food.

The Easter Bunny was tired the next morning but he managed to make it to our house.

- My name is Jackie and I am a mother, wife, friend, sister, daughter, cousin to many, and a dreamer of sorts. I dream of many things and one is a life full of acceptance, achievement and success for my Super Hero son Asa. He's got extra good stuff that comes with a little thing called Down syndrome. We live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire with our 2 Bulldogs; Rosie, Frankie and 36 chickens.
