Micah has a new R/C plane, and here he goes to try it out for the first time!

Working together

Andrew has a ring-side seat... ;)

Nathaniel opts to view the plane's maiden flight from a more comfortable back-row. ;)

There is goes!

Way up high!

What a neat plane!

Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes from Mom's garden!

I woke up yesterday morning to this sky...

How glorious is the world God has created!

Visiting at church!

Our biker man!

It's always fun to take walks!

Our walk...

At the G's -- and laughing over the surprise we got when we arrived to find Aaron there! The G's hadn't told us! :) ;)

Catching up with Aaron!

As usual, the girls, Micah, & Stephen ate outside around the spool which serves as a very handy table!

Bethany wrote this commemorative poem about the many fun times we've had there!

Ping Pong!

All sorts of fun games can be playing in the G's game room!

Let's add to the challenge -- raise the net... (don't we think of silly ideas? ;)

Crown Braid Glory

Recently, I came across several amazing pictures, which reminded me of a hairstyle I hadn't tried in ages! The crown braid is a simple style, but very elegant!


Here's a view of the back.

For those with shorter hair, here's a variation: divide hair in half, and make two braids, starting each behind the ear. Then pin them across the front from both sides, overlapping.

A more casual crown braid...

This is a totally different look, but beautiful, too!

Very classy

Here, Princess Grace of Monaco has hers in a smaller "circle."

Inspired you? I hope I did! Let me know what you think in the "comments" section. :) Especially in this summer heat, it's lovely to have new ways to style one's hair off one's neck!

Saturday -- A Wedding in Georgetown

The M's came in late Friday night, stayed overnight at our place, and went with us Saturday for a wedding in Austin/Georgetown area!

Talking in the van...

I think they had fun! ;)

It was a big wedding

Bridesmaids. The wedding colors were turquoise & white. Really pretty!


Here comes the bride!


Their very first kiss

Friends :)

It was fun to catch up with the H. family!

Gathering for the exit of the bride & groom...

Loading up boxes for the M's...

We drove back together as far as McKinney, where they lad left their car. Then we headed home, and the M's drove all the way back to their place in OK!
