Sip of Life Lately

If I could take a sip of life lately: it would be sweet as lemonade, as I watch the kids experience the wonder of holding baby chics and dancing in the rain; it would be strong a bold as coffee while finally finishing up the Fashion show, which took every ounce of strength in me; and it would be soothing as a glass of milk as I drank in some good family time with my sister Tricia, just what my soul needed. 

So here are some sips of life over that past month....

The sirens went off. First tornado of the season. Then the warning was lifted (apparently) and Andrew instisted on taking the kids out in the down pour. I'm glad I have a daring adventurous husband I can live vicariously through...and he gets me to be more daring than I naturally am.

I still watched from the window...they were so cute. Only lasted five whole minutes, but they had fun.




Our friends who live out in the country invited us over to see their new baby chicks and kittens. The kids jumped out of their skin in excitement. We had a bbq and bonfire and they got to ride in the wagon attached to a four-wheeler. It was a wonderful night out in the country.




Love the big open country and lots of room to run. All the kids ran up to the house and back several times...we all slept good that night ;)

Tricia and Phil surprised us with a visit!! We had so much fun. The boys went fishing and caught enough to feed an army.

You and all the girls looked STUNNING at the show! Also, I really miss Kansas and farm land. :)
