One September Day

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

This is where we are..

Life since having our new baby has had it's ups & down's...
it's going and coming..
it's changes and moving forward!
Here is a small glimpse into what we have been up to...

Here is the new play gym that Dan and his employees spent hours putting together.
This is the 1st new swing set that we have purchased in 20 years of having children!

Sarah painting the deck after it was power-sprayed and in very rough shape.
Looking MUCH better now!

She was covered in paint after rolling it for so may hours... her big graduation party is this weekend,, and so this is one summer project that will be done!

  Very common around here... two mis-matched shoes and ALWAYS on the wrong feet!  Still enjoying life though!

1st Day of Summer wouldn't be complete without a lemonade stand
( back country roads do not bring in a large profit..   lol..
more fun than any thing!)

The BIG Graduation Night... Sarah Kathryn turned 18 and graduated all in the same weekend.

Walking the aisle towards her diploma.

I cannot believe this day has arrived.  So surreal.

Our happy, beautiful baby - that we will be graduating in another 18 years!  This really put life in perspective.

Want a Cookie and Lemonade?  They made $13 6 hours.  They were happy.

More painting on the porch!

She just keeps plugging away at it!


Sarah took this picture on her Senior Trip and it is also her Life Verse that we chose for her when she was a Toddler.

    Hi September. Goodness the baby is sure growing and changing a lot. She is so cute in this picture... and I just love the family picture too. You have a beautiful family.

    Glad you found time to do a blog post. I always enjoy them.

    Wow...that is a lot of deck to paint. Did Sarah do it all by herself? It is looking great!
    I hope she has a nice party. I know you are so proud of her.

    God is so good! He loves us all so much, and he directs our paths. Yes time does fly, and I know the same feelings happened to me with Abigail graduating. I was like "how did this moment arrive...our little Abigail is all grown up." (:>) And we also have another granddaughter doing the same this year too. (I am kind of feeling old!)

    Life is fun though...and it is a blessing to see these kids growing up.

    I am enjoying our 11 and 12 year old granddaughters this week while they are staying with us and going to VBS. They are so full of energy. We are having fun.

    You are a blessing to so many of us here in blogland. Keep the posts coming.

    Love, Linda

    Okay, I'm not really dead. Sorry if I scared you. I loved seeing these pictures. Your family is beautiful. Your smile is beautiful. Audrey is beautiful (and is wearing the dress we bought her - made me feel sort of good). :) Life is beautiful. Our friendship is beautiful. Okay, I'm done.

    Love you much friend.
