Everyday Beauty

Summer is here, and the skies reflect the heat with a brilliance of their own...
 Piano Art :)
 Daddy and Stephen, enjoying a book together

 Raindrops and evening sunlight -- what beautiful moments God scatters in our lives!

 Shades of purple and pink and...
 Molten fire
 Daddy and I had fun helping a friend with his booth for a recent homeschooling conference in Dallas. On our way down, we saw this interesting car... ;)

 This photo is looking from our booth at some of the neighboring ones. It was fun meeting some of the other vendors! :) :)
 Dear, fun Daddy! What a treat to spend two days with him!
 City Art

 Sunday, Deborah and I wore our latest creations to church! I love the way Deborah's turned out! (She's such a cutie anyway!) :)
 Here's two looks at mine (I wasn't sure which one to post ;)

Half Full or Half Empty?

This says it all! :)

Art Talk

I like this picture for many different reasons: #1. The matching dresses. Aren't they adorable? :) #2. Mother and daughter have obviously been working together on a useful project. Not only does the daughter feel special because her mother has been doing something with her, but the end result is something worthwhile -- tasty pies! :) Can you think of other reasons?
How many times do we rush ahead in our busy lives, not taking the time to do things with others because we're "too busy"? I often am guilty of this very thing. But what is more important -- getting everything 100% done, or going a little slower and spending time with the people God has placed around us?

Andrew Passes His Checkride!!!!

Shasta Daisies are so pretty -- and amazingly, they're hardy enough to work in Texas heat! :)

Grading our road...
The first tomato from our garden!!!

Andrew passed his checkride -- now he's a private pilot!!! Here we wave as he flies over after his successful test! :) :)

Making a boat for Stephen
Telling us all about his checkride...

Dad declared a celebration, and took us all out to eat at La Hacienda Ranch, the place we like to go for super-special occasions!

A really fun ceiling... :)
Afterwards, Stephen rode the mechanical horses and we watched him...
