And the Bride Wore Red

(Not really, but the title was catchy.)

Here are some pictures of our Independence Day celebration.  It went off mostly without a hitch.  Of course, there was the approximately 30 minutes of rising panic that I felt when I could not find Gannon in the small crowd.  He’d gone with his dad to the bank and did not tell me.  I was glad to see him when they showed up.  And that is all I will say about that.

The other hitch was that I sat on a concrete wall that turned out to be the home of a nasty colony of ants.  They got a bit bristly when my hinder parts disturbed their entryway.  I can’t blame them, really.  I do wish though that they had not defended their territory with so much biting vigor.

I didn’t get pictures of that, though.  Sorry.





We were treated to a fly-by of two planes.  I can’t tell you what kind they were.  Loud and fast ones.


Brian sprouted antennae at some point during the day.





Note Acadia’s socks.  She sees no need to match them.  Neither do I.


Random interesting guy, above.



We ran into a few similarly-dressed friends along the way.  We made them feed us dinner.


That thing on her cheek was a mermaid.

    Sawyer’s socks match yours.
    Your 4th looked way better than ours. We were missing horses and marching bands.

    Love the pics….I can’t get over how Acadia has grown…such a lovely little girl. I can’t wait until I can wear pigtails on Lauren!

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
