catching up

I have been wanting to post on here for a long time, but time has been scarce around here lately. Here are some pictures from our fun summer:

We had a trip to the beach with Meme, Allison, Alinda and most of the cousins in July.











We took in our first Pike Road 4th of July parade... lots of fun! Lots of candy! A few strands of beads. And one poor, patriotic goat.




My sweet, crazy Milesy turned four in June. Hard to believe in some ways. Sad, too, because it's going so quickly but also because the older Miles gets, the longer Dad has been gone. He talks about Dad like he remembers him sometimes, although that's impossible. He was 9 months old when Dad died. He recently said, "I've never met your dad, Mom. Do you think he could come down from heaven and have lunch with us?" That would be so nice.birthday doughnut!

Me with the two just-a-likes! All I did for Miles was carry him in my tummy and give him blue eyes. Other than that he's all daddy.

Poor (sweet) Grandaddy had a tough job on such a hot day! The kids loved it!

They also enjoyed the balloon swords!

It was a fun and busy summer. Now it's school time!

Wow! I enjoyed your updated blog so-o-o much---even though I experienced just about all of it myself this summer! The pictures made me miss the fun times we all had together ---or does it just seem special because they were the weeks prior to K-4 (HA!)?? Surely not! Meme

I remember when we were in Lifegroup there you only had Miles and were pregnant with baby #2. How big he's gotten since then...they grow so fast.

I haven't visited your blog in a while...I'm going to poke around and catch up. We will get stationed back down in Montgomery in the next couple of years and want to keep in touch so I don't feel so much like strangers when we move back. Your blog is so encouraging to me... Your family is so very blessed to have you!

I think I may have messed up on Miles and Elijah...Miles was baby number 2? Sorry...it's been a while!!! :) I've still probably got it all wrong lol.
