What I am seeing these days.
This sculpture outside the Portland Art Museum. It's all language symbols-fantastic.
Eagle Talon marks in the sand.
There were five eagles on the edge of the water. They let us come pretty close...but not too close (see talon marks above!)
This charming little Rufous Towhee and his mate visit us regularly. They are very fun to watch.
We have a community garden plot this summer across the street from the church.
Hilltop nursery-family owned and amazing. Can you see the top of Mt. St. Helen's in the distance?
Flowers on the campus where I work.
Life is full and busy these days. Elisabeth is getting ready to go to the Philippines this summer. She is blogging at http://elbegoes.wordpress.com/ about her trip. She will be regularly updating throughout the summer.
Paul continues to preach and teach at our small Chinese church. I continue to teach ESL at a small program in Portland. Some days are happy and some days are sad. We miss China and our life there. We miss our foster son. We miss our daughter.
We also have days where we are blown away by the beauty that surrounds us. It's just kind of a mixed bag right now.
