Beginning of July

 Looking back to a couple weeks ago. A friend and family celebration for this young lady.  What a wet day it was but the sun came out right as the party started!

At twelve her life is about friends and her cousins.  It is about learning who she is and figuring out her place in this world. With middle school around the corner I miss that little girl of mine, but she is still there with her heart of gold.

What can I say about these two nieces except I love them so!

She is their first granddaughter.  She love them so much!

Bent's Fort and Friends

A trip to Bent's Fort to see some very special friends and learn through living history.  The story of us meeting started as a virtual friendship which turned into real life meet ups.  How great it is to be with another family that has been created very much like our own.

I love the way Luke is holding hands with this little lady that will steal your heart. Her brother is such a little ham.  This family was waiting for him to come home the same time we waited for Luke.  Many emails were sent as we waited for answers and prayed our boys would be home soon.

These two boys have a lot in common.  They are so amazing  together!

Finding some shade as we waited for the others to be done.  This mama teaches me so much every time we meet up!  Her blog is at quilt-n-mama .  She will inspire you with all that she does!

All of our kids had roles to play at the fort. Katie was a journalist.  What a great role for her. However, she would like to be a trader next year!  Andy was a laborer and built adobe bricks.  He loved it and would like to be a hunter next year! We will see, either way it is at the top of our list to return next summer!

Happy 12th Birthday Bri!

Happy 12th Birthday sweet Brianna.  She is growing up before our eyes.  Middle school will be here soon.  Her summer has been filled with adventures with both family and friends.

As she moves into the teenage part of life I am trying to keep up.  We do have a teenager already but there is a difference with a boy and a girl.  At least that is what I am thinking so far:)  I remember the day I first held her in my arms.  That sweet baby girl. I had dreams that day for her and now her dreams are her own!
