OK, so the postings are few and far between as Uncle Joey reports, so in an attempt to get to modern day (may never happen) here comes another post…from fall! Matt keeps asking me to just skip fall/winter and get updated already, but my OCD won’t let me do it…haha!
A Day at Fernbank: Thanks Grammy
Is this real Mommy?
The little professor…
Couldn’t ask for a more handsome teacher…
Just like the wild boars from “Little House in the Big Woods.” The boys thought they wouldn’t eat this…I say they would if they lived back then. The tail was Laura and Mary’s favorite to crackle over the fire and eat, yum, talk about a treat. We’ll pass! They also took the bladder in the book, blew it up, and tied it to make a ball. Talk about a fun toy. Times have changed, imagine your children being elated with a pig bladder…as gross as it sounds, it is a lesson in gratefulness and our own contentment. Life may have been harder in some ways back then, but it was so much simpler too!
The DNA helix,
The pet boar again…good thing he’s stuffed. Those things are MEAN!
Water, water, everywhere!
With a final stop at the snack pavilion, we were ready to go with our newly educated minds.
I am thinking this last picture is appropriate for Daddy’s funny face gallery…he even added some claw action!
The whole crew…a little fuzzy…I am sure my photographer friends are screaming at their computer screen right now! Uncle Joey, Michael, Aunt Amy, Me, Matt, Madeline, Andrew, and Ryan. Two families that will always be together…at least once a month!
Matt and I were talking the other day about how blessed we are to have the boys cousins and our brothers/sisters – in – laws close enough. Matt really didn’t have that relationship with his cousins because of distance and we want to give that to our boys as a gift. It doesn’t hurt that we love Joey and Amy so much! Just waiting for a cousin from Billy and Megan and we’ll have it made!
There may be difficult things that happen in each person’s life, but our Heavenly Father truly makes all things work together for our good! Our generation is mending the wounds from the last and without a doubt, these little bits will mend the ones we create! We must always thank the Lord for continuing his work throughout families and generations!
