July Check-In

 Last Saturday morning, our friends Nate and Joanna were married in a lovely outdoor ceremony behind our church.  Annesley was the flower girl, and Sam, the ring-bearer.  I was pretty nervous about Sam's performance, but it went okay.  I did, however, end up walking down the aisle with the two of them! 

Kevin's Mom was here over the Fourth of July, and we had a fun visit.  I didn't get any pictures of her, but do have lots of the kids' water fight!

Our kind neighbor, Debra, often shares flowers with us from her gorgeous garden.

Friday the thirteenth was 'Cow Appreciation Day' at Chick-Fil-A.  What won't we do for free food?!

Here are more wedding-morning pictures....

This is the happy couple, about a week before their big day.  I kept having to ask Nate to look at the camera--he could hardly take his eyes off his sweetheart!  :)

I picked up this little chair for $3 at a garage sale for Lily's doll.  We had fun sitting Elijah in it.  Just his size.  This little guy is on the verge of crawling, loves to coo and 'talk', and makes us all very happy.

Keely has been helping guide some crafts with the littles this summer...

Just one more flower-girl pic!  I love the curls on her little neck!

At first I thought the kids added the last item on their own, but later discovered that Daddy put them up to it.  Somehow, that doesn't surprise me.  :)

As you can see, Noah avoids having his picture taken.  He's been working on moving a large gravel pile in our backyard.

We are heading to Kentucky to visit the Creation Museum later this week, which we are all very excited about!  After that, we'll spend the following week in Indiana at our denomination's international conference.  I'm surrounded by piles and piles of laundry here, and lists and plans are swirling around in my brain!

Hope you all are also enjoying a fun-filled month!
