Final 2016 Colorado Post

Okay, so I want to wrap up our time in Colorado with these delightful campfire pictures. We were especially glad that it worked out during the time Joseph, Elissa, and Calia were with us.

And yes, time for some games of SpikeBall.

and he that hath it shall abide satisfied;
he shall not be visited with evil.”
Proverbs 19:23

Remembering 9/11

Fifteen years ago, the unthinkable and horrible happened. Thousands of lives were lost. Our hearts ache with you. We still remember, and we care. Praying for those affected today! We are standing with you.

Love,
The Maxwells

put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?”

Mom’s Birthday Report, A Little Belated

Mom’s birthday week was busy since we were trying to get work things wrapped up and prepare for going to Colorado. I didn’t get to posting pictures from her party just then, but I am now. The little cousins’ personalities are coming out and are so adorable. This house rings with lots of activity when everyone gathers!

We had a delightful evening celebrating God’s gift of Mom to us.

Love,
Sarah

A Restful Hike

After our 14er hike, we took a more restful day and just went for a short climb. The weather was delightful and the company enjoyable.

A Smile for Your Day

As many of you know, the Moodys went to Colorado in Book #10. So, since Sarah Maxwell, the Moodys, and the blog are all sort of mixed together, you’re going to love this e-mail we received from a mom.

ME: Do you know what Sarah Maxwell and her family did at Colorado?

MY FIRSTBORN: Visit Aunt Olga, of course. And oh! MR Delome.

🙂 said from a boy who read all the Moody books and kept asking when is the next one coming.
