Daniel and James having a Race



MY GRANDSONS ARE FINALLY PLAYING TOGETHER

I thought that you would enjoy seeing James and Daniel playing together.
James used to push Daniel down but since Daniel has learned to walk, he's been having more respect for his little brother. The other evening they were playing and Joe picked up Daniel and James said, "Put Daniel down Daddy, we're playing.

To keep you updated on our flood situation, the water level went down about a foot over night and we are pleased.

Thanks for all your prayers and concerns.
Hugs,
JB

ON THE EDGE OF THE MIGHTY ST JOHN RIVER

Yesterday on our quiet street, there was a constant parade of curious car drivers driving through to see the river level. It happens every spring..... An update on our flood situation just after lunch.


The water level is at the very edge of the road in front of our house.


There are about 2 feet of water on the road at the upper end of the Lane and he city has put a small barricade. We can use the other Lane but it has about 8 inches of water on the road.


This is level with our road. The water level is holding it's own.


The milk truck driver  has to be rerouted in the other Lane  and my husband went to meet him with the tractor.


This is the pasture in the back of our barn, along side of the Lane looks like a lake.

We pretty well go through this every spring and all is well at the moment.
Take care and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.
Hugs,
JB
