Random Photos from this Spring!

I have been trying to organize my iPhoto (any tips?) ... of course I didn't get anything organized just enjoyed seeing all that has gone on! Here are a few... that made me smile!

Fishing with Dad! MH's big catch!

Middle School Spring Dance

Spring Break... mmm nothing better than some hot chocolate with whipped cream!

My 9 yr old loves to ride "Cricket"!

My oldest (16) is 6'2' an inch taller than my husband! He loved the fact he could finally "Pin Dad" ... of course he erased all the pictures of Dad "Pinning him!"

My 13 year old got the fine arts award for playing the Tuba! We still laugh he picked the Tuba... always makes me think of Veggie Tales!

My 14 yr old daughter got an "Oscar" for her science video... she was shocked! She thought she bombed it! You never know! : )

Getting Drivers License... yikes... see earlier post!

My Birthday Dinner so fun... they blindfolded me and took me to a fancy dinner!

Scout before summer shave!

****Whoever reads this I HOPE this didn't sound too much like one of those bragging Christmas letters... I think it may have... but I promise that wasn't my intent... these were just some of the Joys we have had this spring and I wanted to share... we never usually get awards... (although I think ATT should give us one for using the most text messages and cell phone minutes!)... and I guess you really don't take a lot of pictures of the trying times (which are many with four kids and well just life)****

Thanks for sharing life with us! Emmy : )

Beautiful pictures!

I'm one of your Siestas, getting to meet you in San Antonio in a couple of months. Just wanted to drop by to say hello!

What a precious family! I love all your pictures, even Cricket and Scout. How darling.

Your family looks very special and I am sure you are one proud mama.

Hi Emmy,
I think you have a precious family and it's a blessing to see each of them in the stage of life they are right now.
Thank you for sharing. What a beautiful family!
It was good to read about Chas and the progress he has made. God is so good!
My daughter and I will be in San Antonio in Aug. Hopefully we'll get to meet up.
Have a great Sun.

I just found your blog from the "Keeping Awake" blog. A joy to look over all of the pictures and achievements of your beautiful family - and I loved looking at them - I did not see at as bragging at all!!!!

My kiddos are just 6 and 9, so it's awesome to see all of the smiles of older kids too - and a happy family. We have a Golden Retriever as well - though not quite so furry!

I read through some of the posts about your nephew - what tragedy already becoming a glorious testimony for the awesome power and love of the Lord.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer....
