On Wednesday morning, we visited the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, GA.
|The many geese on the property excited the children.|
|"Don't fall into the fountain, girls!"|
We were unable to tour the monastery museum because it turns out that the cafeteria was temporarily closed: we had planned to tour the grounds, eat lunch, and tour the museum. Without food to fuel my little ones, we had to leave to find a restaurant. Another trip will have to be made in the future!

In the late afternoon, we went to visit Chris' brother, sister-in-law, and our children's three cousins.

|Joseph's tummy time|
|I think the humor of babies in adult glasses never gets old.|
|So happy, even with her many wounds!|
|Mary trying to juggle with one ball: note the bandages on her forearms.|
|John really enjoyed walking the dog around the yard.|
|Juggling gone awry|
|As I watched Chris give Mary a ride on the riding lawn mower for entertainment, |
I realized that we really have become Southerners.

Hard to believe she was an itty bitty flower girl in my wedding and now she is an elegant young lady.
