There is almost nothing that makes my day happier than when my phone “chirps” to indicate a new text message and it’s NOT from Joann Fabrics alerting me to their latest super coupon or from SONIC letting me know that I can get half off corn dogs all day, but rather from one of my kids! And when that text includes a picture, well, this traveling Gramma’s heart sings. In the last week I’ve heard from all of them – and all of them have sent pictures!
From Lara –
“We stopped by the park and there was a 3 yr old birthday party happening and we knew the little girl a bit so they invited us to join. It was all Daniel Tiger. :)” (Alexandra’s favorite!!)
“We got our nails done today for a belated Mother’s Day 🙂 ”
From Toby –
“Reis playing tball and Maddie’s team won the championship for the season today!” (Maddie’s third from the right in the front row!)
And from Josiah (well, technically from Abigail, but we’re still counting it!)
(This one came without caption – but then again, does it really need one?)
and finally –
“He loves his quilt!”
Those little snippets from the busy lives of our kids are treasured beyond words. SO – If you have young children and your parents don’t live close by (or even if they do, for that matter!): Quick – snap a picture with that fancy phone of yours, and send it off to them! It’ll do their hearts good!
Have a good weekend, everyone!
Well, it stumped Gary again, so how’d you do? He did guess Montana, so I suppose he was generally right. Probably if I had shared some of these photos from the same location it would have been more obvious.
For sure you’d recognize this ‘faithful’ guy!
Yep – it’s Yellowstone National Park.
We visited there in August of 2009, and it was spectacular! Here’s the whole album if you’d like to reminisce with me!
It was a cool rainy day here in Montrose, PA.
But the rest of the week is looking up!
Hope your week is filled with sunshine too!
(Remember, I said “A Post A Day”. I never said “A Meaningful Post A Day”. 😉 )
Since this is our sixth (!!!) summer here at Montrose Bible Conference, I thought I’d take a look back to a post from the very first time we worked here in July 2006! (Oh my, 12 years ago!)
July 20, 2006 – More Fun to Come
What a fun project this was! Even though many mornings were spent on bed stripping/making duty (and some of those started at 6AM to beat the heat!), I also got to spend plenty of time in the kitchen. Although I don’t mind any other work, I must admit that kitchen time is my favorite. (And I pick up some great tips- the kitchen manager has a scampi sauce, etc. business – check out his website – www.mazarcuisine.com . His stuff is great!).
