Recapping & Playing Catch-Up!

Owen Finds a fun place to hang out!

I really love that most of the time I can post up to the minute events activities, thoughts, etc. When I have to go back it is so much harder. It is like the luster of the moment has faded into memories and the moment at hand is what is on my mind. But since I do this as a journal and a bit of family history I need to fill in the lost days somehow. Here are just some random photos of some of the things we did.

One evening Jen and Lowell had a photo shot with their favorite photographer for the girls. It included four locations and over 2 hours. They were amazing. One place was a corn field way out of town.

I liked this photo of the Y. Jim and Chris and Lowell hiked up to the Y three of the mornings we were there before the boys had to be at work. That is a vertical hike and how Chris prepared for Half Dome!!

Hazie loves Buzz Lightyear but unfortunately
she calls him Bud Light!
Since no one in our
family drinks
we think this is extra funny!


End of the photo shot,
the girls are getting tired.


Lowell is riding Chloe around waiting
for her turn at the portraits.


The big girls force one more smile...
poor babies!


Hazie resting with a beautiful flower
the photographer gave her!

Looks like a homer, Connor!

Dinner at The Communal with the adult kids
and our niece, Erin,
next to Jen who is at the head of the table.


The moon over the Lake one evening
after
Jen and I finally made it to a movie,
Letters to Juliet.
(Loved it!)
I was able to catch the Blue Hour which is hard!
It was actually dark out.

Julia and Piper did the free skating at
the ice rink before Aynslee had her lesson.

Ayns getting ready for her lesson


Aynslee had only had one lesson when we
went to
watch her skate. She is a natural on the ice.
Honestly she was so good,
she took to it like a fish to water.
No fears!

Hazie giving her back a little rest one afternoon.

Waiting for lunch at a fancy restaurant one day.
It was just the big girls, Jen and me.

Zachary lost his first upper tooth
while we were there.

The kids playing on the carpet in
Chris
and Missy's dining area.
Everything is out
of its normal place
due to 1/2 of the house,
the basement, being under construction.

Christopher at the Barbie!

Zach and Chloe enjoying a cookie after dinner!

Hazie swinging at Uncle Chris
and
Aunt Missy's house. Crossing her legs like this
helps her circulation
and balance in a swing.

Uncle Lowell playing Frisbee with the kids.

Missy made three delicious desserts one night!
She loves working in the kitchen, that girl!
And she is an expert in there so why not!

I love your pictures! The girls in the corn field and Hazie with her pink flower tie as #1. I also like the rising moon and the ice skating rink, especially with the snowflakes effect!
Have a blessed day,
Susie

HI BONNIE,
LOVED ALL YOUR PICS,, THEY ARE SO CUTE! THAT IS A WONDERFUL PIC OF YOU AND JIM, GREAT IDEA!!
HOPE YOU ARE GETTING RESTED UP BY NOW, KIND OF A LET DOWN AFTER A TRIP LIKE THAT AND NICE TO HAVE NOTHING YOU REALLY HAVE TO DO FOR A FEW DAYS.
HAVE MISSED YOU GIRLIE, SO LOOKING FORWARD TO YOU GETTING BACK ON TRACK,
COURSE THAT MAY STILL TAKE AWHILE SINCE YOUR JIM IS HOME NOW. SO JUST ENJOY IT. WE ARE REALLY HAVING SO MUCH FUN AND JIM IS REALLY BEGINNING TO WONDER IF HE WANTS TO GO BACK, SO WE ARE GONNA START LOOKING INTO HIS RETIREMENT
AND SOCIAL SECURITY JUST IN CASE.
HE IS STILL FEELING THE LORD MIGHT BE LEADING HIM TO START A BUSINESS
SO HE IS WORKING TOWARDS IT, SO WE WILL SEE, BUT FOR NOW WE ARE WAITING AND DREAMING!! LOL
TAKE CARE SWEETIE,
LOVE YA, NELLIE

Thanks for your help with "You Tube." I was also surprised my You Tube video saved in my video file would not copy to my blog(?)

Our school always starts early because of the State FCAT test. It gives more time for the children to practice for the test. The only problem, the cut off date for kndg. is August 31st. So we have 4 year olds in our class to teach a 5/6 year old curriculum to!!
God helps me get through with the help of our team! We all work together great. They all are a blessing from the LORD!
Blessings on you and yours,
Susie
