Vacation 2019

We are back home from our vacation. We had a great time.

The ocean was beautiful. I have so many pictures to share.

I love watching the waves!

It feels so good when the water splashes on your feet.

The house we stayed in was very nice and only a few minutes walking distance to the beach.

We are so glad we got to have this experience.

I will have many more pictures in future posts. God bless.

Vacation 2019

We have been blessed to go to the beach! This is our first picnic on our way there.We stayed over at a motel on the way down. The kids(young and old) enjoyed the time at the pool.While they were swimming, Grace and I took a little nature walk. We stayed over at Walterboro SC. The place we walked at was called Wildlife Sanctuary.It was a really nice walk. Most of it was boardwalk.Some of it was nice open trails.

Grace made a cute little Sparky video.More to come on this great adventure. God bless.

Pretty Skies and Garden Update

Hello everyone! I hope all of you have been having a good week so far.

We have been busy doing the usual things here. Gardening, canning, things like that.

Teaching Daniel how to work up beans. He seemed to enjoy it and wants to help more. I’m glad. I think it is important for children to learn the art of gardening and canning. So far, we have about 60 quarts of beans canned, with hopefully more to do.

One of my first tomatoes and just look how big it is. It has been so dry here at my house. It amazes me that the garden is producing at all. Jess, who lives 10 minutes from us, has rain almost every day.

A carrot I pulled the other day to add to our slaw. I haven’t had much success with carrots in years past but they have done very well this year.

We have had some beautiful night skies here.

The moon has been so pretty.

That’s all for now. I hope you all have a great Friday. God bless.

Blueberry Picking

Grace and I took the kiddos blueberry picking today. We had so much fun!

Nap time! I love it.

They did such a good job picking.

They each had their own bucket.

All together they picked a half gallon of berries. Impressive!

Then we celebrated our hard work with a pizza picnic.

After we ate, play time!

I love the fact that they still love playgrounds!

Thank you Lord for such a good day!

Big News

So yesterday, I said I would be having big news in this post. Grace’s art work will be on display for the months of July and August at our local library.

We are all so proud of her and so happy for her.

She draws every day. Constantly improving her skills.

This is a really BIG step for her.

I LOVE the picture and the write up she did about herself to go with the display.

I love you, Grace!

Garden

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a grest weekend. Ours was nice. We spent the day yesterday with the Horns. We had a great time.

I thought I would show you all a few garden pictures. These are some purple beans we grew for the first time this year. The germination wasn’t very good but there will be enough to have something different. I love the color.

Beautiful green tomatoes.

Our blueberries. They are not very big but they taste really good.

And a picture of my ever faithful Ezzie. She is always with me when I am outside. She sits outside the gate to the garden, waiting on me to come out so we can play.

I have also been enjoying my little fireplace. It is the perfect size for my campfires.

That’s all for now. I have big news coming in my next post. God bless.
