New theme!

I am not sure about the new peacock theme I have going on here. I let Hannah choose any design she wanted for the background here, and this is what she chose. That girl loves peacocks!
New design goes with new direction I'll be taking here starting whenever I have a chance to get on here and write....more of a chronicle of our daily life so family/friends can keep up with us and see what's going on now that we are further away, but same old, same old as usual.

Butterflies everywhere!

Over the past few days, our backyard, which is surrounded by a field and woods with wildflowers and grasses, has become flooded with butterflies. The kids are amazed by how many they are and we spent nearly an hour this afternoon watching them. Lucille chased them and tried to eat them, but I'm happy to report she did not get any. The kids suggested we become "nature photographers" so we grabbed the camera and got a few shots in. Our next step is to pull out our handy dandy butterfly book and identify these little beauties!
