us now . . .

It has been a VERY long time since we have taken a family picture.  For some reason, we just can't seem to get everyone on board with getting a picture with all of us in it.  It seems to never work.

However, today, we finally got a picture.  I look at pictures like this and think "is this all?"  wondering where everyone else is . . . as if there are others.

The Opel's visit was fantastic.  They shot arrows, rode on the Gator, rode Lady, cut some wood, and did a whole bunch of visiting.  It is refreshing to spend time with friends sharing ideas . . . experiences . . . our lives.  This weekend we heard the whole story of how Kurt and Anna met and the time leading up to their marriage.  We had fun laughing and sharing.

You guys look so happy! Farm life definately agrees with you! Miss all of the children--they are growing up so fast.

Looks are deceiving Mrs. Thompson. We still struggle, like everyone else, and then smile for the camera!

Although, it is nice to be out here working with animals, breathing fresh air, and seeing the blue sky. :)

I love your photo of the family Amory! Boy, you all look different! I want to write you letters, but I have so little time on my hands now that I'm in High School. Ugh, I don't even want to mention that dreaded word: SCHOOL! Hope you and your family are doing well.

Fresh air and blue sky? What are those? :-)
