I know this speaks very poorly of my dusting skills, but this little "I love Mama and Pa" note in the dust blessed my heart this week.
It's the little things...
|Look at all these sweet girls!|
|Hailey painting her girl's group tote bag to carry her binder.|
|My dear friend, Lisa was the inspiration behind starting the group. Thanks, Lis!|
|Our wonderful friend, Danielle with a couple of her little girls.|
|Our little niece, Mercy, age 8.|
|Our dear Michaela, age 15.|
|Sweet girls working on memorizing the Beatitudes.|
|Ellie's sweet tote.|
|I can't believe it's Back to School time already!|
|Back to school packs. Each kiddo had their own color. And a chocolate. Because|
really-- everything is better with chocolate, right?
|Getting our hands dirty harvesting the last of the garden spoils.|
|All packed and ready for a last little slice of summer-- a day at the lake.|
|We had a private beach for hours to play and rest.|
|Tada! Sister love. They played for hours in the lake.|
|Smiling at my honey (see me in his glasses?)|
|Dog surfer by Michaela.|
|Faithie soaking up the heat and the chance to read.|
|I love this man like crazy. We just celebrated 23 years of marriage.|
|Goodbye sweet Summer...|
|It's been great to visit on the porch with dear long-time friends.|
|Back to School we go!|
