Floating in Iowa

Just a quick update....I'm not sure if I'll be able to post pictures on the road. We made it safely to Iowa and it is flooding everywhere! I think the Midwest is going to float away. We had a great trip....Pennsylvania to Chicago; Chicago to Belle Plaine, Iowa; then up to Hawkeye, Iowa where we will be until June 20th. We've spent precious time with Aunt Sue and Uncle Lyle, who were fresh from a trip to Israel so we got to hear wonderful trip stories. We've spent a wonderful couple of days spoiling our niece, Isabelle (Izzy, I like to call her) and cuddling, feeding, and changing the diapers of our twin nephews, Will and Wade, who are now 3 1/2 months old. I'm so proud of my sister, Carla, and how she has grown as a mother to a new three year old and identical twin newborn boys. It's so neat to see the changes and to experience a day of the busyness of it all.

Now, if it will only stop raining here.......
