Questa primavera la piu bella quest anno. Il mondo e tutti fiore. Le bimbe stanno bene e Angelica comminica preperatzione per il primo Communione al primo di Maggio. Noi ancora proviamo trovare un modo per tornare a Gravanga quest anno ma adesso e difficile dire. Come voliamo tutti tornare a videre nostri amici, le montagne, San Barttolomeo!!!!!! Mandiamo i penzieri e preghieri. Ciao e baci!
We have all has a beatiful Easter following a very long and sober Lent. You really only appreciate Easter with Lent before it. The girls were very exited to have our own eggs to color this year and although we had so much wonderful food on Easter Sunday I think all the fasting during Holy week made us have tiny shrunken stomachs and nobody was very hungry.
We are having quite a weekend. We drove in with Ben on the metro to DC to see him off on his New York bolt bus. Ben is in New York this weekend hanging out with his cool publisher friends. I took the girls and a friend with her kids out to the Virginia State Arboretum today for a truly breathtaking experience. We have never had a more blossomy flowery spring ever. The kids all ran throught the feilds of daffodils and narcissus yelling "Paradise! Paradise!" It was beautiful. The old plantation house there is really more beautiful than I remembered too. Add some wine and cheese and fresh bread and that's about as good as things can be with one's husband gone.
