Here's a peak at what we've been up to...
A great breeze yesterday brought out the kite.
A little bit o' badminton.
A lot of this.
"Is this really okay, Mom?"

who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion,

The LORD will lay bare his holy arm
in the sight of all the nations,
and all the ends of the earth will see
the salvation of our God."
