Not exactly the varmint Kim intended to trap...

Taken somewhere in the state of North Carolina...first time I've ever seen this!

I guess even truck drivers have to learn how to maneuver a big rig somehow......

How is it even possible that my little Karterman is starting kindergarten in just 10 days?!

Yesterday his new llbean backpack came in the mail and he couldn't wait to walk through the orchard to show Gramaw.  He couldn't be any cuter!  And I couldn't help but feel a bit nostalgic watching him walk back home looking so grown up.  Where did my baby boy go?  I hope he always wants to walk through the orchard to share the "big" things in his life.  

I do SO LOVE that child!!!

What a growing season God has blessed us with this year!

The corn is mighty, might tall...tallest I ever remember!  I'm guessing it reaches 12 feet or more.

Kaden and Karter are going to look small beside any cornfield...



...but Mama (who's 5' 8" herself!) looks small too!

But Kim reminds me that the proof is in the ears, not how tall the stalks are.    But still...I'm optimistic that Indiana will have a bumper harvest this year!

Mama's sister Rachel lives near Emerald Isle, so Kim and I took the twins over to visit her one morning. 

Aunt Rachel is a twin herself...she is a twin to my Aunt Ruth, who passed away last month.  It is said that twins have a special bond, and Aunt Rachel hadn't seen the girls in person yet.  She got very emotional when she saw them.  I guess it triggered a whole lot of memories for her, having just lost her twin sister.

I love this photo of the three of them checking each other out!



We had a wonderful visit, and I'm so glad Dana let us have the girls for the morning.

A couple of new blogs in the sure to check them out from the links on the right sidebar of this website.  --------------------->

Dana and Kristoffer have started a new blog about their crazy, busy family life, and Kamaron also has a new one where he shares about his outreach ministry, sharing the gospel with others. 

Emily and Zach keep adding updates about their new home-in-progress (it's going up FAST with plans to close in late August!) and Kyler and Kara also have a blog from their Cincinnati life.



I'm one blessed mama!!

Thanks for making the move with me to my new blog...I plan to post daily except for Sundays and holidays (and unless unforeseen circumstances prevent me!).

Enjoy the weekend...and I'll catch you on Monday!
