Signs of Spring
Spring is coming at last to the Midwest! I love winter weather, but once spring starts to come around, we're all ready for it!
Last night the sun was still up and it was still above freezing after dinner so we took advantage of the lovely weather and went for a family walk. It was so good to be outside again - and to not be bundled up too thickly! All around us things are starting to drip. What used to be sheets of ice are turning into the rivers of waters. It is now actually possible to drive somewhere around here and see clear pavement the entire way! Jeanine spent some time here today and Winston and I sat out on the front deck for awhile listening to the birds and watching the flocks of geese fly north. Oh, and one other sure sign of spring - Bambi is out and about again. Drivers beware! We had an encounter this morning, but thankfully it wasn't as close of an encounter as some of the others we've had...

The Erberanteys rehearsing. I feel sorry for everyone who only gets to see the performances. The rehearsals are so much fun!! On Sunday the 2nd Virginia Convention cast also had a rehearsal. Each year a little more personality comes out - during the rehearsals and the performance - but especially during the rehearsals!
