a little update...

One of highlights of our year has come and gone...much quicker than we would have liked, I might add. We hosted three families, Dr. Sproul, Jr and a friend of my mom's during the week and had a lovely time getting to know each family better. Jared left for his summer semester at school on Sunday afternoon and the last of our company left on Thursday, so we've been kind of lonely. :) Christa and Joshua arrive on Wednesday to spend some time with us, so please be in prayer for safe travels for them, and for Daniel as he'll be home alone. :)

Now for the pictures...after picking through the photos we ended up with close to 1,000 photos from the whole event and we decided that we couldn't post that many on our blogs or even web albums, so here are just a few that highlight our week. The rest can be viewed by clicking the photo below...

Brown Sugar and William enjoying the outdoors.

Some of our church family and Presbytery friends went to see Prince Caspian on Monday evening.

It was so delightful to get to know Red and her family in person! We can't wait until next time!

I know this one is blurry, but having Goose in the house was like having another wonderful brother! I think he whooped Lil' Cowboy and Caleb in this wrestling match. :)

And the day our dear friends had to leave, we remembered to get a group shot. It's amazing how the Lord knits the hearts of His people together and how knowing some people for a few days feels like you've known them for years.

And the group shot with two other families...and these are just the kids! :) There were so many more photos that I wanted to post, but we've been having computer issues and this computer doesn't appear to have the photos, so stay tuned for the slide show...

  2. Thanks for the photos!

    Did you go camping??

  3. Elizabeth,

    Thanks...we had a blast. :)


    Me?!?! Go camping?!?!? :) No, we went for the food and fellowship, but drove home to sleep in our warm, dry beds...:)

  4. Well, I would be shocked if you went camping( ok, not too shocked!)

    Will Jared be there for the 4th of July?

  5. lol...I'm not really the camping type, although I must admit, their campsite was kind of cute. :)

    I'm hoping he'll be here for the 4th! :)

  6. I miss you, and y'all, but you especially.
