First Day of School

Jenna and Nikki in the front yard on the first day of school.

Jenna on her first day of junior high school. She did not appear to be nervous at all - even letting me take her picture in front of all those kids!

Nikki on her first day of 5th grade - our middle school. Two kids, two new schools. It's going to be a great year!! Winnemucca, Nevada

The Bible Tells me so

The Bible tells me so...

Grandchildren are a crown to the aged.

(okay it says Children's children are a crown to the aged. Same thing)

and our children are what??? I can only remember the grandkids!


Ah....let me take a trip down "Memory Lane".
(hahahaahaaa....that's my daughter in law walking down memory lane. Sadie)
Sadie and Mark are in...... wait for it.... (scroll down)

Mark and Sadie are in.....
CAPE COD! can you read it?
Now we get to my grandchildren.
Eli and Emerson enjoying the sights in Cape Cod. Their first trip to the coast or beach or shore (depends on where you are).

And Mark and Sadie.
Our youngest son and his wife.

Our oldest son and his wife.
Jeff and Tara.

And...our grandson Jorell.... a "double drinker" it appears.

Jordan and Jorell in "George" Washington.

BY GEORGE! (seriously. this is George, Washington)

George Washington is in Washington State, on the Columbia River Gorge. they have a "natural" theater there. Well, the stone seating is the only natural thing, but you can see it here:

Back to the gorge in George......

Jeff. I think he was helping put the concert together... working "behind the scenes"

And the stage.... by George.

Jorell by the stage by George!

Obsessive Backyard Birding

My newest addition to the family - this little guy is my most frequent visitor to my hummingbird feeders. He hovers just in front of me as if to say hello when I sit out there.

Here he is in flight about to settle on the feeder.

Another angle of the feeder with my little friend.
And then this guy shows up with a couple of buddies. I was so excited, because he is different than what's been visiting my back yard - one of them very bright yellow. He proceeds to start picking at my bulb lights and then kept landing on the hummingbird feeder.

He acted like he was drinking from it and twice knocked down one of the feeders. I was so mad!
