April has come and gone in a flash, and I can't believe that in another day or two May will arrive (day or two, as in, when will I finish this post?!). We've had a busy month of fun in the sunshine with family and friends we haven't seen in a while. My dear friends Heather and Ben, with their cute little Kinley, came for a visit, followed by my favorite sister, Kristen. We trekked through the zoo, took in a ball game, learned some US history by touring Teddy Roosevelt's home on the North Shore, played in the sand at the beach, and loved the spring sunshine through it all. Now that it's just the three of us again, I miss the company and conversation of my dear friends (that includes you, too, Kristen). Isn't it amazing how even though time and distance separate loved ones, you pick up right where you left off when you're together again. I think it's pretty neat.
