hello there, friends!
we have just returned from our annual trip to kentucky to visit my brother and his family.
adventures were had.
good, good times.
we painted t-shirts.
above are all the grandsons and my mom.
she's the bomb-dizzle.
we went to the zoo.
above are all the grandkids from our branch of the family.
it's a lot easier to get a pic of all their backs than to get a good picture of everyone from the front.
i'm sneaky like that.
it takes the boys and i a day to get up to my parents' house and then two days to get to my brother's.
this year my sis (which i'm just realizing i don't have a pic to show you) came up with the fun idea to stop at an underground cave tour on our way up.
the boys had a great time flexing their muscles and being manly.
we went to the louisville zoo and this is a commemorative pic to prove it. see asher trying to run away?
my sister was trying to get a picture too, so she's missing. i assure you she is lovely though.
anyway, we are back in our new home now and have spent a large portion of the weekend trying to get things done but hitting obstacle after obstacle.
God is working on me. --helping me learn how to let go. i haven't quite mastered that one yet.
especially with boxes and packing paper everywhere, plants dying due to drought, and a family reunion that we will be hosting coming up in a few short weeks.
but if we follow pollyanna's "glad game" example (we watched a lot of old movies on our trip) we would see that:
boxes and paper mean we have a new beautiful home and the move is over.
even though there's a drought we can still care for our home and yard. and i'm thankful for AC.
and we have a family that loves us and we love them and we can't wait to have everyone for a visit.
i'm glad to be home.
