~Happy Memorial Day~

Well, Happy Memorial Day, to you all! I hope you took time today to honor those that gave everything for our freedom, and that you pray for the repentance of our wicked nation everday. But regardless of the way our nation is looking today, I am forever grateful for all of the men and women who gave their lives so mine would be a free one.

Today we had a picnic with all of our Reformation folks, and I loved it so much! Volley ball and frisbee and watermelon; doesn't get much better than that! No really, it was a wonderful day of fellowship with all the friends we love so much, and I'll be asking Mrs. S to send me some pics so I can post 'em.

A few of the highlights:
-Got to just sit and talk with Emmie; loved it!

-Was "agressive" and actually went for the ball. (We'll get there Annina!)

-Learned that I actually knew how to throw and catch a frisbee. Who knew! (Not me..)
-Watched Daniel (not ours) and Mr. R hit awesome home runs.

-Got to hold and feed Jenna for 10 minutes before she started bawling. (Teething. It's not me!)

Nice background Rach... today was a blast!!! I had an amazing day -- actually it can't really be explained with words! 6 hours with brothers and sisters in the Lord -- from our Reformation tree (it's a long story..), to capture the flag, to hiking, to hamburgers, to just talking and enjoying fellowship!!! Praise the Lord for a day to go down in many of our books as one of the best days ever!!! =)

Rachel,

Thanks for coming back and visiting. I thought you would have given up on me long ago.

I really like all your pics. I'm just a beginner, but I've been getting some good tips. I really like your snow-word pics; VERY creative!

You might know that I'm homeschooled from my blog but thought you might like to know I am also a Reformed Presbyterian (RPCNA). Small world, huh?
