sorry y’all.  i got nothin’.  i’ve been wracking my brain for a few days, knowing i want to post.  i have almost 0 pictures since last post, and nothing is really going on.  day-to-day as normal for the most part.

well, except that we are sad that we had to remove one of our big trees from the yard.  the grand tree at the entrance. the maple that produced the little helicopters so that we could tell Jovie about the times Aunt Stacey would tell The Mr. to eat them and he could fly.  (he tried it.  it didn’t work)

the driveway now is empty.

gosh, we miss this tree:

we sorely miss you, tree.

jovie’s already trying to think of another place where we can hide the classroom easter eggs we always bring home each year.  we always have a lot of fun having our own egg hunt for a week or so afterwards.

it was well-loved.
