Little Moments~

The boys are such big helpers with the little girls, especially when it comes to getting our math done on the weekends~

The life of the party don't you know~

A strong brother is good to have in your corner~

And I couldn't keep our house running with little teams of twos and threes~
Little Moments add up to Big Memories!!!

Savannah's School~

We all went out to help Savannah in her classroom on Monday.
It turned out perfect, and we loved being with the boys~
 The kids were thrilled that BC got to come home with us for the night~
Being with my people is always the BEST!!!

Little Girls and Big Things~

Three little girls sure make our days brighter around here!
Someone's always sitting on top of Macy~
 and meeting us right at daybreak to start the day~

Big things would be this BIG mess we've had for a while waiting for our new bookshelves to be installed~

And today was the day!!!
I have to say I cried when I walked around the corner for the first time~

As soon as the cabinet builder left, EK and I worked until evening getting our books shelved~
Trim will be added to give the shelves a built in look!
Calla walked in to say, "We have a Li-Berry!"
I have dreamed of floor to ceiling bookshelves forever!
Now we can enjoy a beautiful reading room with all our books in one place!!!

Our Scrapbooks~

I am hoping our bookshelves will be ready this week, and we have been organizing books like crazy.
I decided it was time to label our scrapbooks and found this clever idea on Pinterest~
 It was wonderful I had the supplies on hand~
Although I did get carried away and Scott had to get more tags.
Just look at those art notebooks though!!!
I can't WAIT to see them lined up on my shelves!

CallaAnne~

Calla is growing and changing so much!
She loves drawing and writing ABCs~
 She loves coloring and talks ALL the time~

She LOVES 'reading' our blog books and looking for herself, asking~ Where Calla?~

We are still working on church.
We went to worship this week and made it through half the service~
Connection over correction~ she is NOT big on MY way but...
It is a process and takes time to trust and obey. Right???

 Have to throw in a few Birth day photos on the 4th of July, 1989~
Happy birthday to our first love!!!
One of the greatest days of lives!

Haircuts~



Lots of Swimming~

It has finally gotten HOT here so we are spending lots of time in the pool~
 We had so much fun with Max, Addie, and Slate too~
Really don't know what we do if we didn't have a pool!!!

Moments to Cherish~

I don't know what I would do without SJoy!
She is quick to help in any capacity, but the kitchen is her favorite~

Loved catching this moment with Calla and her daddy~

We LOVED having Jessie home for a visit all the way from Iowa~

Blueberries are ripe so of course we had to pick~

Some mornings and most afternoons you can find SJ deep in her book~

Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons. ~Unknown 

Spending tons time in the pool and eating popsicles~

There is just something beautiful when they are both able AND willing~

And the sunsets are the perfect endings to long summer days~
And that sweet husband still going until dark keeping our yard beautiful!
