Many people have asked us how we stand the cold and snow for so long every year. It is not always easy, but we love it here. We love our home and the people around us. Today our neighbor helped us with our abri, and that is a really big deal. I spent time playing with the boys and their friends in the front yard of one of our neighbors, chatting with their parents. These opportunities to build relationships are what we pray for. So, while we may still need to wear boots a few more times, spring is here; and God is good!
