Going around the table is Maddie, Megan, Armon, Rob, Shauna, Annie, Elmise Bella, Haleigh, Kaleb, Miller, Mason, Tim, Christy and Jerry at the head.


Our menu was barbaqued chicken, potato OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsalad, veggies, biscuits, and blueberry pie. Kaleb got a hold of my camera without me knowing it. I’m serving the pie and ice cream.

While we were getting supper on the kids played Four Square out in the driveway. I don’t know the game but they sure seemed to have fun.

It’s so good to see all ages playing together. They now range from 6 years to 22 years!







In the evening we found all of them out on the front porch just chilling before going off to bed!

    How very nice of your new neighbor! It certainly makes things easier having a separate sleeping space for the girls. See you tomorrow.
