Sunday Snapshot~~Last Hurrah of the Summer~~

Sweet Forrest?

We made one last trip to my sisters house this week before the summer ends.  Her oldest goes to college soon and we wanted one last week together.  We had a wonderful week but we really missed THE RYAN GANG. Swimming, croquet, and many trips to the park made for a memorable last vacation.  It is amazing how well all the cousins get along. There is some bickering that makes it even better.  The older cousins are always generous with their jewelry, which really blows up Claire's skirt.  She couldn't make enough combinations of different pieces.  She also loved the oldest ones HIGH heels.  I have to say she was really good in those 4" heels...hmmmm better watch out in that area. I would've broken my ankle trying them on in the store.  Kevin learned how to jump into the pool without any help....growing so fast.  I can't believe we start school in a week.  My girls will be in 10th and 1st grade.  Where does the time go?  I will be doing some "school" with Kevin this year, just to make sure he has the basics for kinder. He is really so good at his name and letters, I don't know how much work we will have to do.  Enjoy the pics...

Please go and see more wonderful Sunday Snapshots....

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
