a special place

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!

Fresh air and lots of walking in the woods does only one thing...

Scary Things

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.

Please pray for Boston! Thankfully the best hospitals in the world are in the Boston area. You will overcome Beantown!

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.
It was sunny but chilly on Saturday. We finally got out their x-mas present that they hadn't been able to use yet! Gracyn just chills and really likes being along for the ride. He sits back with his arm up on the door riding shotgun and playing DJ with the radio.

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!

under the weather

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 :(

Easter Weekend

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.

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

Bubble Gun! The Easter Bunny brings a new one every year because some little boy leaves his outside and it gets ruined...

Hunting for eggs

This one is for the big kids

Oh that scowl!

Hello Easter Bunny :) Are you tired from hiding eggs?

Looking for those elusive last eggs that the Easter Bunny doesn't remember where they are.

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.
