Zoo Stick Animals

My sister is a paediatrician and last August she mailed me her lab coat so I could paint on it for her. Well, it never got done, and since I'm going to visit her on Wednesday, I thought I had
better do it. I'm not sure if she reads my blog, so I'm
posting it in the hopes that I can surprise her. She designed
the lion on the left, and I did the rest with the help of the
internet. Painting on material is the hardest thing I have done. Hope she likes it.

I'm so excited about my trip. She lives in Mississippi so the weather will be warm. It will be a busy time because she have five children under 13 and the four oldest are boys who spend most of their spare time on the all star baseball and soccer fields, as well as local sports teams. My oldest nephew is in a musical and I'm so excited about seeing him.

My mom, my sister and her two children will be visiting for a brief period while I'm there. They are travelling from Atlanta. I feel so blessed to be able to see my family a couple of times a year. When I lived on Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, I would go years and years without seeing them.

Family is very important to me, and I have my mother to thank because she instilled that in me and my sisters.
