With no “heads up” to the family of my plan, I came in from working on my book, and grabbed my camera. I found the first two in the living room.
We haven’t unveiled this until now, but we’ll spill the beans. Mom has been working hard on a writing project over the last six weeks. The new book is due out sometime in September. Dad believes that her new book will have a greater impact than Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit, which has been phenomenal. When we have a book cover next month, we’ll probably post that. I wholeheartedly agree with Dad’s thoughts–this book is amazing.
Anna was studying her HTML book. What you don’t see is the delicious dinner Anna had prepared. It was in the fridge waiting to bake: Chicken Enchiladas. She made enough to take to elderly neighbors too; the wife just came home from recovering in a nursing home from a broken hip. Anna also baked them blueberry pies, which they were delighted with too.
Joseph was taking a 10 minute break from work to chat with Dad about something.
Dad at his desk.
Okay, John heard me coming, so he did have a little heads up. Here he is at his computer.
I was told Mary was at Christopher and Anna Marie’s. So, I headed over with my camera in hand.
Jesse was also gone. He was at GiGi and Grandad’s house. GiGi needed to run an errand, so Jesse sat with Grandad and worked on his computer.
I’ve been out in the bus quite a bit, working on Winter Days. This was taken a bit later in the afternoon (thanks, Anna!).
So, there you have it! A summer afternoon at the Maxwells.
