The kids are so healthy and bright and sweet.........and they pick at each other constantly as siblings will do. Kelley and Tim seem really comfortable and happy together and doing well. It was sad to see the hail dents in their nice hybrid car, but insurance is going to take care of that, and make lots of nice changes on their home as well, so the hail storm was actually a blessing in disguise, as often happens. Thank you, LORD !
I've decided to post a few pics of my flowers again. Tonight I'm going to start with a plant for which my favorite neighbor, Rose, gave me seed. It's called Moonflower, and is supposed to be a member of the Morning Glory family, but is not a climbing plant.......it's a small/medium, bush-like plant. This specific one I grew here, from her seed, by my mailbox last year, and part of the stem remained all Winter. This Spring, it began to regrow. The blooms open in the evening around sunset and go away when the new day's sun starts getting high and hot. They put out a round, prickly seed pod that dries just full-to-bursting with seed.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the best news. Tim's deployment has been cancelled........WE THINK !
Please pray that it's true and not a fluke !
