Last week my dad had a serious health scare, but he is doing well now. My mom is faced with the fairly difficult job of trying to get him to take it easy for awhile. This is the first day it has felt okay to think about anything else except all of this. I guess I am just noting all this here for sake of my personal timeline. Last week was like a time warp.
The boys and I are making a few small trips here and there over the next few days. I will be back to posting here in about a week.
I am still working on the redbud leaves and I think something is about to happen with these patchwork stars.
