A wonderful Easter weekend, the nicest weather we have had yet this season.  Busy with family time and dinners.  Ben left on Sunday for his summer co-op job excited to take on his first solo road trip.  It was so strange to see him pack the car, which is now his car, and leave.  James Dad would have been so proud to see him drive away in his old car. Knowing that he would be watching over him made me a little less nervous.

A rare moment...



always a ham!


My beautiful girl...


A little boy sad to see Ben go...



Have a great week!

Wow, another milestone, Tracey... Hard to watch them go away to school, but harder to watch them start real life (co-op) with a job, own accommodations, car and all! I'm checking out your four-of-a-kind projects!

I can imagine how hard it is to wave 'bye to your boy, as I go through the 'sadness' whenever we leave my family. He'll be back before you know it! Your son is a handsome young man; your daughter, gorgeous! Now, your card: lovely! The vellum, the flowers, the colours...swooning!
