Symmetrical Purple, Bundt Muffins, Colored Eggs
I published a blog post here every single day from January 24th until March 4th (that's exactly 40 days in a row, hmmm).
Then it petered out. Now I haven't posted in 11 days. And the first thing I have to present is yet another lovely crocus photo from our garden, so prepare yourself:
I love the symmetry of this one, and the shadows.
In the past 11 days:
• Jason came in 2nd place in his high school lunchtimes-all-week chess tournament (out of about 18) - I like that position, because it means you're doing really well, but you still have things to shoot for! Go, Jason!
• Jason also performed as "Garvin" in his high school musical, Footloose. A very fun show to watch, with lots of dancing, singing, and good acting. A local reporter even attended the dress rehearsal and published an article about it. We think Jason's hand made it into the photo, but one can't be sure... :-)
• I made fun shapes of muffins in my new silicone muffin moulds
• We colored Easter eggs with a new type of dye we will not use again - it involved using thin gloves, pouring a few drops of dye onto the gloves, and rolling the eggs around in our hands. Gooey, messy, strange. Next year we'll go back to the regular dye-in-the-bowl-and-dip-with-spoons stuff.
We're getting ready to go on a college tour trip for Jason over Spring break. Hard to believe he'll be applying in the autumn. It's going to be a short, packed and focused trip, sadly without time to visit people along the way. Hopefully Jason will get some insight into what sort of place he'll like to spend four years of his life.

I do wish you safe travels and much insight into the choices Jason must make, with special God-given wisdom for all of you. Wish we were going to be on your itinerary, but I'll see you in a few weeks, Lord willing!
I want to find some of those fun muffin molds when I visit!
