Hello, June!

I am so enjoying the long evenings, sleeping with the windows open, lilacs, peonies...

I've been thinking a lot about community these days. I read a great article in Sunset about making your neighborhood more of a community; take a look! - it's inspiring. And yesterday in church our pastor recounted the story of Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx, a book about community building in a powerful way. I can't wait to read it.

You have a wide array of interests. No wonder your boys like discovering things; they're just like their Mom. :)

Ah...community in a neighborhood...that's a dream of ours that's never come true. Our own neighborhood leans towards the unfriendly side. We're thinking about moving in the next few years because we're ready for better.

Nice new banner! I live in a village community and it's great, but sometimes it does feel a little too small ... Happy June!
