I just wanted to share this photo after a surprise hail storm May 25.  I ran like a crazy woman out into the storm to collect the rare big white blobs falling from the sky!  Getting pelted hurt!  It was worth it!  Many years ago when we were new to Idaho a hail storm hit Nampa.  A Dr. at the clinic looked out the window and said, “oh no, there are white ball popping out of the ground.”  Of course a couple seconds later his brain told him it was hail the size of golf balls!  Funny!  Not funny were all the damaged cars and roofs in the valley!




Mother and Two Daughters “Happy Mother’s Day”!

Happy Mother’s Day all you amazing moms out there!  Aren’t we the luckiest to have this privilege!

I loved the cards, flowers, phone calls and hugs today!

A proud father sent me this photo of his girls today for Mother’s Day!  He wanted me to see them posing like their new present of “Mommy, Carry Me Too” framed in the background!  How precious is this!  Thank you Andrew for sharing!
