The Gift that Keeps on Giving!

This gift - led to this....

HOURS of fun - and I do mean HOURS!  And MOST of it was fun!!!  Grandma, Dad and Mom were nearly loony - but hey, if we use it once a year, it's still a good purchase, right!?!?!  :)

Another 16 year old!

Today Caleb turns 16 - honestly, there is no way we are old enough for this!!!
But we are OH SO glad to have him as ours!!  I think almost everyday I STILL thank God for choosing to let us keep our little 9 month old baby that we were told would never leave the hospital!  SO glad God had a bigger plan!

Caleb - we pray for you daily that God uses you mightily!  We love you - Happy Birthday!

Survived Another Band Camp

Yes - we all know when our summer is coming to an end - it's when band camp rolls around.  So July 30 was the start of the big week - the all day band camp - for high school band!  The sunburns strike - the heat wave overtakes - yep, it was true again this year too.  From 9 am to 9 pm (with short breaks for lunch and supper) the kids practice their songs and their field marching.  They are troopers!!  SO, the boys have bravely endured, once again, and at the end - THE PRIZE!!

 Notice those colorful cheeks and arms!!

We think our cake lady is AMAZING!!!  Thank you, Sara!

Arizona Fun

We visited Meteor Crater - NOT worth the expensive cost, we didn't think - but it is fun to see!

Checking out the Crater!

We headed on to the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert....

Reading all about it....

Finding shade....

We stopped at the historic spot of Route 66 -

The Painted Desert
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
