To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring. ~George Santayana
We are very accustomed to the quick altered state of weather in Michigan. However, it is a bit more rare to see such rapid change in a single day.
Auntie Karen arrived from Illinois to hang out with Cam again due to our volunteer wheelchair costume building event at Mary Free Bed.
Saturday began pleasantly enough with a beautiful sunrise and direct sunlight through the windows. As Ms. Ann traveled over to Cam's, it began to hail and sleet.
After it stopped, the three of them spent the remainder of the day running errands and then cooking a most delicious homemade dinner and dessert for Cam's exhausted parents.
Upon arrival home, Chris and Jane were treated to pot roast with potatoes, carrots, celery and onions, along with crescent rolls. Cam was quite unsure of eating the roast but after taste-testing, declared it incredibly good! He also made certain the rolls were warm and timed perfectly. And for dessert, a fresh-out-of-the-oven homemade apple pie complete with Hudsonville ice cream appeared for all to partake.
Chris and Jane are most thankful for wonderful, sweet friends who are there to support and help when we need it most.
As a family, our hearts are full of thanks for our community of volunteers who continue to give their time and energy to build costume creations for families who least expect it.
Cam is a big fan of hearing people tell stories, especially ones about others he knows. He also loves tales about kids who might be known to do some outrageous things. Ms. Ann told Cam she had a story to share about the shenanigans of her two-year-old granddaughter, Ella.
"Ohhh, noooo. This can't be good!"
