The Putnam


Last fall, Edward took part in the Putnam Mathematical Competition for the 2nd year in a row. He didn't do as well this year as last, but still turned in a noteworthy score. The math program at Calvin was featured in this article and they even quoted what Professor Mosely had to say about him. Last year he scored in the top 500 in North America! Needless to say, we are proud of him :)

He is Risen!

I admit, I was just a wee bit disappointed when John brought home a tight-budded lily on Saturday. I never had one before, but you know, by night time, it was starting to show some promise.

Then on Easter morning...

Love Thursday

I can't quite explain why I love to take pictures of cats... I just do.

Oh, and happy birthday today to our funny Leo!

Soon, the Flowers are Coming

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sell-song on our roof at night--
And I love the rain.
- Langston Hughes, 1902-1967, April Rain Song

The people who went to enjoy Panama City with me

I showed all the beautiful things in Panama City, but I neglected to show the beautiful people who went with me!

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Always Good

We are back from a very relaxing week at in Florida. Yes, it is always good to have a week to rest and read and behold the ocean. And even to take some long exposures at the beach.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
