Today I want to share my trip to my friend Ruth's iris garden. Ruth is my "shoe fairy", if you recall the story of her back and leg problems which rendered her unable to wear her many beautiful pairs of shoes. We wear the same size and she gifted and blessed me with 16 lovely pairs of shoes.
I went with the senior group from our church for this "field trip." It pains me to say that I am actually of age to be eligible for this group's activities, but it is true. We had a nice time - there were 4 of us on the younger end of the spectrum. It was a nice day off work.
I wish I knew how many varieties of iris Ruth has planted - she knows the name of each and every one. I took pictures of about 30 of them, and many more had not bloomed yet.
I am repeating the picture I posted of the twins in my last entry. They are doing so well - Emma is 9 pounds and Kate is 10. Kate is very interested in her hands and what they can do. Emma is intent upon rolling over. They are developmentally right on target at 5 months, not their adjusted age with the 7 weeks prematurity taken into account. They are "talking" to each other. Emma was upset and Kate put her hand on her head. So precious! They are such growing miracles.
You've Come a Long Ways, Babies!
