We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

Where Have We Been?

I realized when the third person this week asked me where I had been that my lack of new blog posts had caught up with nme! In Texas, that's where we've been! Visiting our Texas Sweethearts....
It never ceases to amaze us how much the girls seem to grow up between our visits. Lexi is no longer a toddler and we can understand almost everything she says(and she has lots to say especially if you get her on her own).

Caily is ready to start Kindergarden this fall and loves to write, color, and draw, along with other things of course.
And Bria? Well this picture says it all. She almost always has a smile on her face and is busy walking  all the time, looking for what new trouble she can get into. One morning Jody found her standing on the kitchen table! Not bad climbing skills for a one year old!
Darin had been in Haiti most of our last trip down, so it was good to be back and see the girls enjoying time with their Daddy. 
It's hard to believe that just one year ago we were welcoming Bria into the family and now here she is....a beautiful little girl! Oh how fun it was to get to know her better and enjoy her hugs and kisses.
Of course it was very hot - it was summer in Texas afterall. But all in all, we had lots of fun. As I told a friend this was full of swimming, shopping and sweethearts. But more about that later!
