The greatest poem ever known
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.
~Christopher Morley, To a Child

"You be the princess Mommy, and I'll be the Queen"


Kerry said this yesterday as she re-discovered her dress up trunk.  Gotta love a girl that sets her sights high =).

Easter 2012!

We had such a nice Easter.  We started with a fantastic service at church celebrating the risen Savior.  Kerry was looking so spring-y in her new dress, shoes and flowery headband.



I love bright saturated colors on my girl and there's just something so sweet about little white ruffly socks.


Of course there was the after lunch  egg hunt =)





And some Papaw time...


And some good old fashioned play time.

My huge azalea bush is in full bloom so I convinced Kerry to stand still in front of it for just long enough to snap a couple of quick shots.  Then I was reminded of some things I'd read about how azaleas grow wild in Ji An, the city she is from in Jiangxi.

Physical Features: Ji'an lies in the middle section of the Luoxiao Mountains on the middle reaches of Ganjiang River. Mountainous and hilly regions occupy more than seventy percent of its territory. Plains and hillocks make up a percentage of twenty-three of the city's land area.

Climate: Enjoying a subtropical humid monsoon climate, the city is bleak in winter and spring, hot in summer and dry in autumn. It usually rains in early summer. The annual average temperature maintains around 17.1-18.6℃ (62.8-65.5℉).

When to Go: April to October is favorable period to visit Ji'an, especially in April and May. The hillsides in Jinggangshan City are aflame with azaleas at that time.

I've been happily married to my wonderful husband for 15 years. Two year ago we were blessed to welcome our first child, a Daughter from China and are absolutely in love with her.
