The Reverend Samuel "Billy" Kyles

We had the honor this week of spending time with Reverend Kyles a close friend to the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. He gave a powerful presentation at the University. I think we were all moved to tears.

Tuesday we had the pleasure of having Rev. Kyles in our home. He played cards with Elias and discussed the last moments of Dr. Kings life with us. We hope to meet up with him in Memphis sometime soon. What a powerful experience.

Also, We celebrated Elias's 3rd birthday recently. He loved having all of his friends at the swimming pool to play with him especially Grandpa Lamb.

Goldie and Elias are best buds. Goldie lives on the next block so we get to play a lot.

Nana bug also came out to celebrate Elias's birthday! Fun times!

Mommy's Best Helper

Elias is such a good boy when I have client. I usually work for an hour a day. I put a movie on for him and he engages and watches it. It is his only TV time so he usually is pretty interested.

Well... Kipper the Dog movie ended 15 minutes early! So he made breakfast!
A whole dozen eggs for the two of us!

He is quite proficient at getting the yolk and egg white in the pan, shells on the counter top and very proud of himself, as you can see.

My baby boy turned 3 this week. Boo hoo! He will always be my baby though. He gives the best hugs and kisses. Eric and I are totally enjoying this fun new stage of development and discovery. He makes us smile everyday!

Eric (far left) really enjoys teaching and being actively involved at University.

Eric and Elias both love being outside. And good news! Sacajewia, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, and Oprah all made it through the Minnesota winter!
