Living Life

We are in Oakhurst spending time with Andrew's grandfather and parents. Ellen is doing such a good job of helping Walter through the pain. His spirits are up, but the pain medication definitely sends him to a different place. Although it is not his typical self, I can only hope this other place is one of healing and self-reflection for him. Here are some pictures from the farm. Blake is having a great time running around like a crazy guy.

I am off to go antiquing in Coarsegold for a small break from chasing my kid around this great farm. Hopefully I can share goodies on the next post.
