The Bees are Buzzing

...and the ladybugs are appearing. It seems the warm weather we're having is fooling them into thinking that it's spring. There are also some trees in bloom.

We did more house shopping today. We revisited the one we like the most, but it depends where Mom and Dad work whether or not this will be a good location for them. We'll keep looking.

Gabriel made a sign sentence today. He signed "please" and "eat", meaning "Please, may I have some crackers?"

We've added a new permanent link on the right side of the page. It's the 1950-1980 yearbook for the Kapel'a Banduristiw imena Tarac' Shevchenko (not sure about the forms of the last two words), or the Bandurist Choir in the name of Taras Shevchenko, Ukraine's revered poet. His famous work is Kobzar, which is a sort of wandering minstrel bandurist, I think. A bandura is an instrument that is half double bass, half harp. Anyhow, look for Havrylo Machynia, P's grandpa ("did"). His story is really interesting but for another day.

That's it for today. My boys are in bed and I'd like to join them.
