'Tis the season.

Things are very busy around here. It seems that every committee or group to which I belong is having an end-of-year turnover meeting, happy hour celebration or some such get together. Today, for example, in addition to worship and Sunday School this morning, we have an end-of-season party for the travel hockey team, separate orientations for the missions trips Hockey Boy and Dots are participating in this summer (Jamaica for him, rural Mississippi for her) and one of our infamous block parties.

All of this to say, that though I have a lot going on, not too much of is inspiring blog fodder. Thank goodness for Vivian!

This morning I heard Vivian giggling away in her bed. I thought she was sleeping so I went in to check on her. Sure enough, she had her eyes closed, but she was smiling and laughing her cutest laugh.

I asked, "Vivian, what is so funny?"

She answered in her sleep, "I am playing basketball!"

"Are you dreaming?" I queried.

"Not anymore!" was her sweet reply.

I know what you mean, Eloise! It is crazy around here too. Vivian reminds you of what really matters, doesn't she? How exciting for the kids to prepare for their summer missions trips! Can't wait to hear about your summer!
