Mount Sherman Family Picture

I’ll be sharing a report soon on Mount Sherman’s hike,
but for the moment, here’s the family picture.
Have a beautiful Monday!

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness,
and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
Psalm 107:8

    1. I love the photo too even though the “family” part shrinks as more are married. We never did do a family 14er hike before Nathan was married. I was back with younger children. One year Steve hiked Yale with Nathan, Christopher, Joseph, and John.

  1. Lovely photo of a truly blessed family. It’s too bad Nathan, Christopher, Joseph and John aren’t in it for a ‘true’ family picture!

  2. Beautiful photo!! Lovely family time! Looks like you all were having such a fun and blessed time together that I see in your smiles. Have a wonderful time together!

    1. After as hard as Steve and I work to get up to the top of those 14ers, I am so glad that we have smiles on our faces. We truly do enjoy the beauty, praising God for and in His creation, our family fellowship, and the challenge of the hike.

    1. Thank you, Dessiree. The only reason we can accomplish it now is because the children are all adults and the Lord has allowed Steve and I to have the strength and stamina to do it. When the children were little, Steve climbed Mt. Yale, a 14er, with my dad, Nathan, and Christopher. Then we weren’t in Colorado for a few years, and the next time we went I think, Joseph and John were old enough to make it up. I believe I was 57 or 58 the first time I climbed a 14er with Steve and the family. They picked an easy one because I really didn’t think I could do it. Now I love it!

      1. Thank you so much for sharing this! I think it’s easy sometimes to see the end result of something and think that’s the way it’s always been, like seeing the top of the mountain but not seeing the “journey up.” But as you shared, it reminded me that there’s always that “journey up” in family life and in all areas of life!

        1. That’s a good way to put it Dessiree – a “journey up” in family life and in all areas of life. I like to share some history of our hiking in Colorado because 14er hiking isn’t for little children. One year when Mary was probably 7 or 8, we started up Mt. Antero. She got altitude sickness fairly soon so I went back to the van with her. The others went on, but just Christopher, Joseph, and John summited. Steve and Sarah stayed with Anna and Jesse’s pace.

  3. Great picture! I haven’t been through your blog much, however we do have a lot of your books, and hope to buy the children’s books soon, as my kids love the “Summer With the Moodys” book. 🙂 I hope to explore your blog soon…finding time seems to be the issue, ha, ha.
