Hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend. We had beautiful weather with little humidity.  That makes for a nice time to be outside, cookouts, swimming, fishing or whatever is fun to you.  

Leigh took Grayce and a friend to Lake Winnepesaukah for the day and said it was lots of fun for them.  It is our big amusement park, which also has a water park included.
Harv and Aryn went to Kentucky for a showcase of basketball.  Coaches from colleges all over the country come to these to see prospects for their schools. The rules say that no college coach can contact a student until September of her Jr. year, and that is what Aryn will be this fall.  
Murphy and his family went to spend the weekend with his in-laws.  They live on a lake on top of a mountain and her Dad is in charge of the cabins surrounding the lake, and that is where they stay. They fish, cookout, etc.  Jesse seems to love fishing.........and swimming!

All in all, it was a good weekend for everybody but we stayed low key and hopefully will feel better as the day goes on.

Moments in Time!

Some days are hard.  Some days are amazing.  Some days I want to go back to bed and the day hasn’t even begun.  The days are long but the years are short.  I think about this a lot. I don’t want to take these moments for granted. I don’t want to waste these precious moments. I don’t want to wish away this season even though it’s hard. The grass isn’t greener on the other side, even if it looks more vibrant from where we’re sitting. And if I need this reminder today, maybe you do too.


  1. Good morning, Linda! I looks like your family had a fun holiday weekend! I love the much joy in them! I have no doubt that Aryn will be contacted this fall by a college coach! This is going to be an exciting year for her! Have a wonderful week!

  2. Awesome pics!! Thanks for sharing. Have a great Monday!! (monsoonal here, under severe weather threats, the pics on my blog were taken yesteday). Blessings

  3. I don't want to waste away this season either. My blog I just posted was almost on the same note. I think we're feeling and thinking the same things today.
    The pictures of the kids are good. Looks like they all had a great holiday. You take care. Hope you're feeling better. [Hugs]

  4. Looks like everyone had a great time, wherever they were spending the holiday! We enjoyed our very lazy weekend! Good friends for lunch on Friday, and then nothing much else the rest of the weekend. Nice. Love & hugs!

  5. I really enjoyed your pictures. Looks like everyone had a good time.
    You're right about the years. They go by too quickly and keep speeding up.

  6. Really good pictures. Now I want a pool again. Just what I need, something else to take care of. NOT! *ha ha* It's dried out here. I wish it would rain. I'm pretty content where I am ... at the moment ... God bless. ~:)
