It’s Been Awhile

It has been so long since I sat down to write on my blog that I am not even sure what to say. I had so many things I was going to blog about this summer — but I didn’t. Then as July was coming to an end I had lots of pictures and things I wanted to post, but before I even got some of my pictures on my computer we had an enormous problem. We almost lost 169,000 of my pictures — yes, we did have them backed up, but even the backup had a problem. We spent several weeks getting all of this fixed and I am so thankful that my husband was able to save my pictures. I can’t even imagine how awful it would have been to have lost several years of photos and video. So, I can finally load pictures on my computer again. Since I love photography and usually take a few pictures every single day, it has been hard to not be able to load them on the computer and look at them. When the computer problem was finally fixed and I had access to all my pictures again I loaded several flash cards. I was so excited. Finally, things are back to normal.
We did have a nice summer. I am sorry to see it end, but I do love fall. We are already planning fall projects and small trips — with lots of pictures. I will just post a few pictures now and then go get all of our school stuff together. 
Reagan (granddaughter) came to play some this summer and she is finally big enough to want to play out back with the kids. She really enjoyed being able to play with the bigger kids. 

Reagan didn’t really help with the baking, but she did like to watch. 


While the kids mixed up several different things to bake, our little squirrel that is always hanging around, stood in the window and watched. He is so cute and the kids love him.



Sophia watched from her highchair much of the time — we baked over several different days. 
Sophia still spends a lot of time playing in the floor with the kids or banging on musical toys.


This little one, Joshua, has grown so much in the past few month. He is such a big boy. I just love his red hair. He is only 10 months old and will be a big brother in November — so then I will have 4 grandchildren. 



  1. Your children and grandchildren and beautiful! Love Sophia's smile ❤️ I'm so glad you didn't lose all those pictures! We lost about 6 months worth of pictures, unfortunately they with the first 6 months a after one of my children were born 🙁 All we have from that time period are the pictures we emailed to the grandparents.

    I am loving this cooler weather today-really makes you want to be outside 🙂

  2. How sad to lose 6 months of pictures — especially the first 6 months of a baby's life. I was very concerned about my pics and would have lost several years worth — including our trip to Bulgaria to meet our girls. We are now working on a new system and a new back up system.

  3. I can't get over how big your grandkids are getting! Keep those posts and pictures coming :)!

  4. I've missed your updates and beautiful pictures…the grandbabies are geting so big! And Sophia looks more and more alert. She is adorable 🙂
