And then there's Teeball. This adorable little one from our congregation can barely see from under his batting helmet. They start at 4 years old, and are very entertaining to watch! 21 May 2007.

Ya gotta love Bev-- not only did she play for the AAGPBL and make it to the Michigan Women's Softball Hall of Fame, she can still pound the dust out of a ball at the age of 77. 22 May 2007.

After we checked on the goslings, we stopped with our goddaughter to look for lambs at a farm in Kalamazoo on Sunday (Mother's Day). The lambs were quite adorable, especially as they bounced around the field. 13 May 2007.

I stopped to check on the goslings, and alas, there are now only two. They're still fluffy and cute and are starting to get some darker coloring. Kalamazoo, MI. 13 May 2007.

I have no idea what these tiny (smaller than my little fingernail) flowers are, but a lawn full of them is gorgeous! Parrish Park, Kalamazoo, MI. 24 April 2007.

Not a stunning photograph, but an interesting one-- a shipwreck on Short Sands beach was uncovered by the Patriot's Day storm in April. The beach has to lose about 7 feet (deep) of sand for the shipwreck to be visible. My aunt remembers seeing it after the blizzard of '78, and remembers how quickly the sand came back in to cover it up, too. These top two photos were taken by me a week after the storm. The lower one, by Don Clark, was published in The York Weekly. For the whole story, qlick here. York Beach, Maine. 29 April 2007.

This is reminiscent of a photo I shot back in January just after an ice storm. Although the "dripping" ice was interesting, I'll take the cherry blossoms any day. The Cathedral of Christ the King, Kalamazoo, MI. 3 May 2007.

Each year a trillium blooms in the middle of our pachysandra. Our neighbor says that this year it is the most beautiful he has ever seen it-- I'm inclined to agree. 1 May 2007.
