My brother, Louie's granddaughter Chelsea, and her graduation announcement.

I placed a picture recently of the bird's nest. They hatched yesterday and thanks to Judy this is what they look like. She said that the mother Wren fussed at her the whole time she was trying to get the picture. Later in the week she will try again, after they have gained a little weight.

This picture is one that Judy took this afternoon of the eggs in the birds nest under the grill. The following picture is one that I took earlier, but with her tiny camera she could get a much better shot.

I had a really big surprise this morning when I was getting flower pots out. A Wren had built a nest under the grill. Guess we won't be using it for awhile. Will try to get pictures of the birds when they hatch. (Judy came later and was able to get in a little closer with her camera, so she got some good pictures of the eggs - see www.themews.blogspot.com)

Mother Wren sitting on nest. I had to take this a good distance back, since each time I tried to get in close, she would fly.

Alice and Casie playing Chinese checkers. Had to watch Cassie to keep her from cheating...

Faith seeing her Grandma coming up the steps. She had been so fussy until then.

Spent a wonderful time with my friend Christropher on Tuesday taking pictures. He KNOWS a whole lot more than I ever will know. Hopefully someday when he's back in town we can do this again.
