It occurred to me that I am grossly behind in keeping my blog up to date, perhaps because I mostly use Instagram or Facebook for such things now, but here we are, my family, all up-to-date and beaming for the camera.

Mother's Day


Another Mother's Day under my belt without my Mother. Only this year another loss...Ashley. It was a pretty day, but I had to keep busy to keep myself from thinking too much. I had to teach the kids lesson in sunday school. And then a big lunch for Jon's Mother. Then off to work in the flower gardens. Busy hands.

There is just no use asking "Why?" We already know the answer...this is the price we pay for living in a cursed world. And I am ever thankful for the remedy in our savior Jesus Christ. I have many blessings, like my husband and children. And that keeps me going. I miss you Mom. I miss you Ashley. And there are so many others...Angie, Aunt Joyce, Grandma, Grandpa. I will try to be strong until we meet again.

Day in the creek

We finally got a good sunny day to play in the creek...so long overdue. Aubrey and Reese were busy catching salamanders, crawdads, and finding pretty rocks.
Its difficult for me to enjoy these things right now as I grieve my friend Ashley...I almost feel guilty that I get to enjoy all this and she isn't here doing the same with her family, because I know they need her, like Aubrey and Reese need me.

Cox Arboretum and the butterfly house...lots to see and learn. Reese, Aubrey & Titus take a break on a lakeside boulder.

Visit from Grandpa Powell


The kids were really wound up because Grandpa Powell was in from Minnesota. He and his dog Taz stayed in the RV for a whole week. Our cat Belle and Taz got along marvelously. We all had a great visit!

Father's Day 2008


It's all about the Dads today. It was a gorgeous day and the perfect temp to eat outside even.
