In lieu of trying to belong to any number of societies: Chesterton, Sherlock Holmes, the Inklings, and so on: I propose and establish one of my own. Don your intelligence cap at the door; dust off your logic and imagination; did you bring your inspiration and encouragement? We are shapers, my friends; lit lamps; light-bringers. Bring quotes*; poetry should be uplifting and thoughtful, or witty and clever, (or both). Humor is encouraged; laughter is invited back. Pull up a chair. Anyone for tea?

* C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN, SHERLOCK HOLMES, G.K. CHESTERTON, N.D. WILSON, AND P.G. WODEHOUSE, ARE ENCOURAGED

Gardens

 These are the two gardens Dad put in this year, and they are pretty cool, I must say.

 And this is the first butterfly I saw this season--a Red-Admiral--so I had to take its picture, even through screen.
I have lots more pictures to post, so I hope to be back here soon!

I LOVE to sing...

"We sing for God"

I recently got the opportunity to sing in a choir for the first time.  I enjoyed it so much.  The concert was on the evening of March 24th, and we enjoyed the day rehearsing and spending time with some of our dear friends...

Emily and Will :)
Best Friends

Caleb and Will sang in it too.......                   ......{brother and sister}
