Flowerpot from Adam (with chocolate kisses inside!)
Bound writing book with reflections from Olivia
Note from Elizabeth
Card from Daddy and the kids
Flowers from the little boys (below)
HAIKU from Olivia
The slender, scrawny
tree sways while -- almost -- silent
cool wind rattles leaves
Olivia Marie Salonen Stout
Would not take the garbage out!
She'd vacume her room and do the dishes
Fold her clothes and feed the fishes
And though her dad would scream and shout
She would not take the garbage out!
And one more, from my friend, Donna Marie, who today added the sidebars from her article that appeared in Our Sunday Visitor this week to her blog, Embracing Motherhood. Enjoy!
