Counting My Chicks

Steel came home today for Spring Break... and he brought a friend. I've written before about how wonderful it is to have everyone under the same roof, but hosting extra friends is even better. Steel's friend Kristen came along on the trip. I'd like to think it's to visit us, but I think the planned trip Disneyland was the real reason. (I'm so jealous.) We met Kristen earlier in the school year when we were in Oregon for a football game... but getting to actually visit with her has been a pleasure.

I also got to indulge in one of very favorite activities... feeding people. It was wonderful to fix a big breakfast for kids again. Today was full of simple graces that I used to take for granted. All of which are amazing.
