She's Back!

We have a pet turtle that lives in our pond. When we went to retrieve her for winter hibernation in November, we couldn't find her. We concluded that she had moved on to greener pastures. Imagine our delight in finding "Gertrude" on the edge of our pond this week. The grandchildren are thrilled to know the turtle is back. The minute they hit the door last summer they were in the backyard looking for Gertrude and wanting to feed her. Between the turtle and the chickens, the kids love to come to visit. I wouldn't want it any other way.

Mr. Funk,
Your grandchildren may love the chickens and the turtle, but I imagine that what they love most is being with you and their grandmother.

There's no doubt that you would have a rich environment for them to experience no matter where you are.

Still, it is a special blessing to share an ever-expanding interaction with nature by the next generation.
