Mom birthed & reared 5 kids which = a lot of long days, laundry, home-cooked meals, birthday cakes, nights of homework help & argument difussers between siblings!! I don't EVER remember hearing mom complain about the daily duties which she kept up with like a pro. Our home was ALWAYS perfectly in order and mom was always on her feet doing something! Her art though is displayed through her garden! She has such a wonderful touch in knowing exactly how to place colors and types of plants to make a beautiful display. Anything she puts her hand to do, she does it well!!!
I feel like I am just beginning to understand the great sacrifices Mom has made over the years! She is such a hard worker and gave everything to our home and us kids. I don't know how to thank you enough, mom, for everything you are and give to us & for never giving up on us! :)
I LOVE YOU, MOM!!

One of the local farms
And, yes, buffalo!!
[oops, my husband just informed me these are NOT buffalo. he thinks they are long horned steer, or something. guess which one of us is the city slicker!]
This is downtown Pittsfield, north street. The significance of this picture is that my husband designed those awnings! I wish I had a before picture because they were so run down.
It is cool to see something that was once up on our computer screen in its finished state.
Some sweet possibility of bouldering rock down our road.
