Maximilian and Philip's First Easter at Home. Stephen's 6th Grade Graduation. On the beach. Nicholas' birthday.

Things slowly started to get resolved. It didn't happen from one day to another. I was still terribly worried--but I knew I was protected from Above. I knew I had all the help that so many times I had resented having on this soil when thinking that my parents and grandparents were giving me too much. I'm not talking about just too many toys or too many comforts, but most of all about too much love, too much care, too much selflessness even to the point of self-denial on their part. Yet, during those trying weeks of constant anguish, I felt God's help and protection even more vividly because I had my very own constant advocates next to Him.

Easter photos. Warning: there are lots of them.

Catherine had bought lots and lots of things--including that basketball set!

She had a little statute of the Virgin Mary for me

The hula-hoops had been Catherine's presents as well.

Watch out, Nicholas!!! Look what your sister is about to do!!! Actually, Nicholas is trying to get up and run as fast as he can.

Catherine is approaching Philip with two buckets now!!! Her face says what she's about to do.

And she is doing it!

Nicholas is getting his revenge.
