All in a week....

Last night was one of those great neighborhood evenings in Angola. It was such a beautiful day and everyone was out milling around...biking...walking. Aaron and Jonah came over, and we all just sat out on the stoop for the longest time. Everyone stopped by to chat as we sat there...puppies, babies, old folks, young'uns (as Philip would say!). Jonah loved them all!

As we sat the full moon began to rise in the East..shrouded with bare treetops and wispy clouds, it was a stunning moment.

As darkness fell, the streets became quiet as we all attended our own households...supper on the table...homework to be done...stories to be read.
