Yay, it’s time for another random life!
This last month flew by. So much happening. We welcomed Anna and Mary home on the 17th, and we had just a week before County Fair time! Life has been stuffed to its fullest. We enjoyed a lot of family time before I left last Saturday for a ministry trip to the West Coast.
God has abundantly blessed, and we’re grateful for His mercies which are new every morning.
We were a small group on the 4th! This is all it worked out to be. But fewer means more quality time.
What a sweet threesome!
Missing our girls! 🙂 (Notice Calia sneaking in the picture).
This guy had a birthday, and he and Daddy went for breakfast.
They picked up flowers for Mommy. How thoughtful!
Mom and GiGi went to Science City with Melanie and crew and had a delightful time.
Good job on the selfie, Abby.
Arnold sure likes to pick crazy spots to sit.
We got a new roof recently due to hail damage, and Anna Marie and crew baked cookies for the guys.
Speaking of the new roof, I opted to write at GiGi’s house to keep my concentration.
Anna Marie brought me cookie dough! 🙂 Yep. Cookie dough is wonderful.
Anna Marie and cookie bearers!
A “non” aunties’ playtime Grandpa and Grandma did.
A car race going on here.
The “outdoor” kitties are sure enjoying the inside.
Calia loving her produce she helps mommy with.
Sunday morning Bible time with coffee and my buddy.
Look at this incredible card a blog reader made for us!
Totally beautiful. Thank you!
A day road trip to see old-time friends of Anna Marie.
Arnold loves plants. I caught him
batting at Mom’s basil plant which was supposed to be getting sun.
Helping Grandma with Sunday lunch prep.
Abby made this hat for a blog reader’s baby niece
who we’ve been praying for and was in serious condition.
I guess sometimes life seems better
if you can curl up and put the cares out.
Tina taking the aunts’ place (before they got home)
and reading to the “little kids.”
The welcome home parade.
Family times together with a special dinner out.
Followed by frozen custard
Enjoying a Sunday lunch with the girls back!
The girls have participated in summer Bible bee study.
Calia met the kittens.
Girls’ lunch out and grocery shopping with GiGi.
This happy group enjoyed a walk, playing in the stream, and SNACKS!
Jesse seriously ate all that corn in FIVE bites.
Here Anna is restocking the balloons before another fair night.
Mary painted so many faces (and special requests too!) :)! More on the fair later.
Hello from the West Coast!
“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then
how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace,
wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in
the swelling of Jordan?”
