Seven Years Old

It is hard to believe that my little girl is seven years old today!  Audrey is such a joy to me.

She loves life! Audrey loves flowers, horses and helping me. She loves Curious George and being “momma” to her many “babies”. She enjoys running fast, being silly and teasing her siblings. She is not afraid of snakes, worms or frogs. She loves to dress up in fancy clothes and also in unique combinations that I would never think to put together but looks great on her.

Today, even though she has two pony tales, she only wanted one blue ribbon.  When asked why, she replied, “Because I am Audrey”.

I am looking forward to seeing what God has planned for my beautiful “little” girl.

Family Visit

I needed to go to the eye doctor because my glasses were horribly misadjusted.  They hurt to put them on. I called to see if my parents were home today and found my brother and Grandma were there too.  So we skipped school and went to visit family.

My Grandma is very special. She taught me to sew and how to rip out my sewing mistakes. She taught me how to french braid hair. She still helps me with sewing questions. I always enjoy the time I can talk with her.

Every spring she comes to live with Mom and Dad for the summer. My brother Joe brought her up after enjoying her at his house for awhile. I enjoyed being able to talk to him today and watch him read “Green Eggs and Ham” to Adrian.

What a great way to spend a warm morning, visiting with family!


Bored

I was attempting to get some good pictures of the girls in the dresses that I made for them.  However, even with the flash they were in too much shade.  I will have to try again.  But, this picture captured what Adrian thought of it.

Bluebird Babies

Today we went to check on our bluebird babies.  Three of the four eggs have hatched.  It was so neat!  Mark took the picture of the hungry babies.

 

Adrian kept asking if we saw “Scouts” while we were out.  I said that I did not see any and he insisted “yes, you DID.”  He saw this picture of the Tree Swallow watching and said “see, there’s the Scout Bird”.  I guess I did see some Scouts today.
