Hello Again...

It's been a week and a half since my last post.
We are still staying with my mom and grandma
as my mama continues to recover.
It has been a blessing to be here to serve,
help, and visit with family and friends.
We hope to return home within the next week.
We have a 1,000 mile trip ahead of us
and sure do appreciate your prayers.

Since it's been such a while since I last posted,
this post has a lot of photos (again). ;o)
(You can click to enlarge)

We were thrilled last week to hear jets
flying over Grandma's house...




Will and Beth were quite excited
and stood outside to watch a while...



Ally playing guitar and singing with great-grandma...



Beth fiddlin' around with Grandma...



After chasing down the ice cream truck,
they enjoy a cold treat with Aunt and cousins...



Playing with cousins...



Morning snuggles with Grandma...



Morning snuggles with each other...



An afternoon at a local playground
while waiting for Grandma at dialysis...






An afternoon of sewing for self, sisters, and friends...



We spent our Fourth of July afternoon
at my sister's and her husband's home.
My brother and sister-in-law were there, too,
with their two children. We had a lovely time!

My sister and brother-in-law had hidden
little toothpick flags all around the yard
and the children enjoyed searching for them!
Their prize for participating was waterguns
and they spent the afternoon chasing each other...





Even my sister's children (their two black labs)
benefited from the watergun chase...



The children, also, enjoyed playing in the sand.
Here was Carolynne decorating the sand castle...





Patriotic Garb...









Swinging with Great-Grandma...


My Mama...

(She is feeling better... thank you for your prayers!)

Playing on Aunt's piano...
(a delight of her day!)


Later in the evening,
the Grandmas, the children, and I
drove around to see the fireworks.
We found a nice spot to park and watch...


(chilly enough for jackets here in the north)












I hope y'all are enjoying your summer!
Have a great week!

Glad that your mama is doing well and that you are having a nice visit with your family. I will certainly pray for your safe return. Fun pictures - and what a great idea with a flag hunt. We don't have many planes fly over our place either. Your photos brought back fun memories of when the girls were little and we went to my mom's where planes fly over fairly low all the time - they were so scared, they would run to the house. :)

Blessings & Journey Mercies to You and Yours!
