 I just can't help it!  When the sun rises, my eyes it was 5:57.
 By 8 it was brilliant.

 Lorrie and I picked the big pasture....

 Seymour is into modeling lately.

Chorus, lunch and then watched Lorrie's first driving lesson since she moved here.  Moon had not been driven since last fall and she was a DOLL.

 She was long lined for about twenty minutes....
 and she stood perfectly as she was hooked.

 Elisabeth, the instructor, did a great job with both.  Her calm energy was felt by Moon.

 Spring is springin' all over the place.

 Over the past two days we have been removing several huge bushes that were in front of our porch.  It sure looks different.  Can't wait to have a pristine little garden instead.
 We took the boys out for dinner tonight.

 As predicted, they both had breakfast.

 While we were finishing, Jenny was able to join us.
 Coop worked on his math and was given special treats by the restaurant owner for finishing it.
Finn also got the ice cream plus.....
 Home in time to do chores.  The girls never got off the grass today.

 Lovin' this weather.
Night all.
