Playing Catch Up

Holy buckets have we been busy! I hope you're ready for a random update!

The kids had a big party at school on the last day. (Two and a half weeks ago. Did I mention I'm behind?) Here they are with their friends. So happy!



The week we had Vacation Bible School, we also had a huge family week. My brother and his family came back from Senegal (if you need to look that up, check in West Africa), where they have spent most of the past 20 years. We will have them living close by for the rest of this year. YEA! That week my dad's wife, Jeannie, was here visiting her son's family, so we all got together at their house. Here's a little peek at our fun.





The kids obviously adore their cousins, but (shhh!) I'm pretty sure this is their favorite "cousin". Meet Casey.



Last week I got to spend a girls' day with some very sweet friends. One of them lives on a lake, so we relaxed on the beautiful porch and took a ride out in the boat. It was amazing. Especially since we've been madly dashing around to kids' stuff. It was so nice to have an event of my own.



That's enough for today. But there's more. "Y'all come back now, ya hear?" (Extra points to anyone who remembers where that's from.)

You HAVE been busy! And the reference to "Y'all come back now, ya hear?"... sounds like every day in Louisiana. :)

That Casey is adorable! But the house, wow! Love that sunroom on the back of the house, and what a view! Your summer sounds as busy as ours!(so far)

As always, thanks so much for sharing the Superior Snaps. Hey, have you ever been to visit your bro in Senegal? I have 2 students who hail from there...it's supposed to be spectacular!

Yes, Pam!!! You get 50 extra points for the Hillbillies! Melissa Mae, I'm afraid you were too young to know that one. ;-)

ARGH! Beverley Hillbillies! One of my Dad's favourite shows from his younger days. I was too late! Ah well, I knew it. Love the pics of your family in the cee-ment pond!
