Warm weather.......

Finally - a day in which you could be outside at 8am and enjoy the warmth of the sun! Sunday morning - finally got out out to finish cleaning the dead stuff out of the perennial beds. Moved around and rearranged a few perennials.

We've been having some ROBINS trying to nest in the basement well near the water faucet. Tried cardboard to keep them out, but they were persistent. Yucky bird poop mess, finally purchased a plastic well cover to keep them out.

Will post some of the early Spring flower beds later this week.

Ryan had the priviledge of meeting Coach Hanlon from U-M's football team. Coach Hanlon was the offensive coach for U of M under Bo Schembechler for 24 years. He provided some words of wisdom for the boys today.

Ryan's dealing with a bit of an issue right now - he has an Osteochondritis Dissecans Lesion (OCD) on his right knee. Have been in to Medsport and had xrays done, MRI was done last Thursday - we won't have conclusive prognosis until we meet with the Physicians Assistant this coming Thursday and ultimately, the determination of what to do next will wait until his June 23rd (yes, we wait that long!) appt. We are praying it does not hinder his hopes for starting as a defensive lineman for the 2008 Football Season. For now, he's been resting the knee and just working out in the weight room with upper body weights.

Sad news, too - Don's sister, Arlene has passed away this weekend. Please say a prayer for Don and his family. His sister, Arlene, had been a resident of Billings, Montana for many years.

Lots of love to the family.
