Geographica: European Rivers

     We had a wonderful Easter, filled with friends from morning to night, and a few quiet moments to remember our Savior and the empty tomb.  Always remember, even if it wasn't a good day...we celebrate the resurrection far more often than one Sunday of the year!  Every Lord's Day, every Sunday, we celebrate a Living Savior. One bad holiday won't drag us down or diminish our hope.  We've seen a fair bit of rain here.  Arden describes our yard as a marsh.  Bryan's wisdom regarding the weather is, "Some days it's nice to know you're on the top of the hill and not the bottom."  Monday again and another Geography quiz written by Ally.  I will say that Berwick-upon-Tweed is like a fairy tale land and tomorrow (when I have a little time) I will post a couple pictures and prove it to you.  Until then, trust me that it is well worth knowing.
