What Have We Been Doing?

Well, we must have been busy, cause it's been quiet on the blog! Sorry about that. Here's an overview of our June (and a little of May)...

We went to a couple of graduations.
This one is our nephew "DA" with his mom and dad.

This is one of our Youth Group guys, Andrew.


My sister had her FORTIETH birthday! I made her a cake that was Gluten-free and sugar-free. It tasted a little better than it sounds. A little.

Sisters at the party!


We also put in our garden.
Abby planting onions.


Billy working hard... on his lunch break.


Abby's all wet after playing in the sprinkler.


Does it get any cuter than this?


Cousin Woody came for a visit and we took him strawberry picking. It was his first time. Boy, was it hot that morning!!
Relaxing in the shade!


We also did a lot of just hanging out.


A couple of my nephews were in a production of "Oliver." They did great!



And last but not least, I ran another 5k last weekend. As you can see, the time is a little better than last time.


Next up, Abby's swimming lessons!!

Hi Linda,

This is Ceci, from the far lands of Texas!! I just wanted to let you know, that I have been reading your blog for a few months now... I know I probably should have said so sooner, but I sometimes just have enough time so skim through blogs, so I don't leave comments. Any way, I have really enjoyed reading about you and your family, Abby is so big and beautiful and it's nice to see you all are doing great!

I've especially been intrigued by your running. I started running a few months ago, and I really like it, but have not yet worked up the courage to sign up for a race. Although, my runs have been shorter I think I can only do 1.5 mil straight through, so I am still a beginner, but I guess not bad for not ever running before in my life.

Ok I better stop now, just wanted to let you know I've been reading along and have really enjoyed it.

Say hi to Billy, and a kiss to beautiful Abby.

Love ya

Ceci
