The Last of the Beach Photos

Ah, he loves his Mama. Kelly 'wands' some bubbles at sunset for Marcus's pleasure.

Melissa frolics with Brianna. She is a fairly serious mother, so watching her PLAY filled me with unspeakable joy!

Alana LOVES her mood ring.

We all love to feed the squirrels.

I'm unendingly grateful to have had this significant time with Kelly and his family before he goes off to war.
My heart wavers sometimes when I think about it, so I don't often think about it.
My son-in-law is home from Iraq and is weaving his family together with some time off before he goes back to the job his boss saved for him.
In fact Chris was offered a $3/hour raise,
a cushy route. and some ready cash to sustain him until May 10 when he returns to work.
We serve an awesome God!

God is so good to line things up for your son like that. Awesome! So glad he is making his family priority. Those kids will have so many good memories that will carry them through the deployment.

That is so awesome about Chris! Wow!

My mom always says the same thing to me when I play with my children. It tenders her heart when she sees it. I wish I could be more of a fun mom. I feel like I have to keep those boys in line. If I give an inch they seem to take a mile.

I love the picture of you and Kelly.

Such a lovely time!! And feeding squirrels?? lol hmmmm just not at home. ;)
Pete was feeding them on our side porch, untill he realized by my frantic shooing of said squirrels because they were tearing up our porch furniture cushions for their nests. Stinking cute and agrivating little pests.
Love you!! And I am so excited to see what you do with all of that lovely fabric.
