Since becoming nearly complete shut-ins, family outings are challenging. No, they are nearly impossible. We always have to look for ways to take the family out to experience the world, yet be safe from illnesses around us.
This past weekend presented us with one of those rare opportunities where getting out and keeping safe were both possible. ClovisFest begins their days with a hot air balloon launch early each morning. So Sunday morning, we gathered up the kids at 5:30 and headed up to Clovis to see the launch.
We watched the sunrise over the mountains as we drove up. Paige found that really fascinating. Here we are all bundled up waiting for the balloons to inflate.
It was fun to teach Paige how the balloons worked. She loved to see the fire go into the balloons.
Eli sat and watched quietly, yet completely engaged He was fascinated with the balloons.
We had a great time watching the balloons! Someday, I'd love to go for a ride in one.

You're sure to have noticed the complete lack of updates over the last few weeks. Life has been extremely busy, and keeping everyone updated has taken a back seat to other priorities. So... the most important news of the last few weeks:
it stuck. If it was to be a boy, his name would be Samuel Joseph. And that's exactly what happened. Paige officially named her youngest brother.
Paige: 4 years, Eli: 18 months, Samuel: 34 hours
