As I flipped through the normal junk mail and bills, I was so excited to find this post card from one of my former students. I have had a first day of school ever since kindergarten! I don’t miss the stress and busyness that first day brings, but I do miss those sweet little kindergarten faces coming through my door on that first day. School started this week and I am constantly wondering how my teacher-friends and former students are doing this year. I loved hearing from this sweet little girl. Now, back to my new job of being mom…which I LOVE!
There is nothing more refreshing than being in the mountains. We just got back from a vacation in Colorado. It is so beautiful there and the weather was fabulous (it sure beat the 100 degree heat here)!
This post is dedicated to Joel…who is 28 today.
In my family Joel is known as the “fun guy” and I am known as the “fun-hater”. They all claim that before I was married I was pretty boring. I know Joel is fun, but I think their description of me might be a little exaggerated. Don’t you think? Anyway, Joel has brought a lot of joy into my life. He is constantly making me laugh. This is what happened one day when I left my camera unattended. You never know what you will find when Joel gets his hands on something. You need to scroll down quickly to get the full affect of his photography.
**disclaimer** My sister was a willing participant in this photo shoot and was not severely injured.
This is the third year we have hosted the “young marrieds” Fourth of July party at our house. It is always so fun to have everyone come to our house way out in the country. We ate, played games outside, and ended the evening by watching fireworks. It was the perfect evening…the weather was beautiful. Thanks for coming friends!
