Bible time...

Bowling with the CCA students!



We found Trusten here after naps...

Swimming at Papa and Nina's!!!





Waterplay in the back yard...(courtousy of Mrs. Lamb, the boys' teacher on Wed nights)







Uncle Bryce came for a visit...

Typical!

Fireman Trusten...

One night in a bad thunderstorm, we lost power, so we camped out in the front room
(This is without a flash)...

This is with a flash... (I nearly blinded them!)

Brotherly love

They look happy, but they were just fighting over who got to hold her...

Samuel took A LOT of spills this summer...
This one was a head (hard to see in this pic),

Samuel was just chillin' on the bed, calling his friends, settin' up a play date...

He wouldn't admit he was tired...

Trusten took Liberty and I for a date! First to visit the train...

It looks like you had a fun summer! Liberty is getting big!

I will try to call soon, but I'm not very good at calling people! :) I have also stepped way back from the computer and it has definitely helped me have more time for the important things!

We really need to get together sometime soon. I miss you!

Love the pictures Grace! Thanks for posting them. The boys are getting so big, and Liberty is just as beautiful as I knew she would be. Bangs are really working for you too. I like it. Love you girl and miss you.

Hey Grace! GREAT summer pictures! Liberty is beautiful-- there's something extra sweet in seeing our hubbies love on and bond with their baby girls:) It looks like the boys are loving on her plenty as well! Thanks for sharing all the pics...

Sorry for randomly popping in. I stumbled on your/your husband's blog by accident (quite possibly by the grace of God!) and LOVE what your husband has to say about family driven churches. I noticed the blog entry that I have since read over and over and sent to many of my friends was written quite a while ago. Has he moved his blog? Or is he not blogging anymore. I would LOVE to find a church just as he is describing, yet I don't know if we have one near us (central illinois). Just wondering if he has any more though provoking messages about the church/family reform? BTW, I too am a homeschooling mother of 4 little one aged 6, 4, 3, and 1. I would love to get to know you a little better to share ideas and encouragement! Email me anytime - mclain458@yahoo.com God Bless, Nicole
