The Longest Day of the Year...First Official Day of Summer

It has been a busy, but productive day.  I have washed 5 loads of laundry, {still not finished!} and made a set of  twelve cards.  So cute! {not the laundry, the cards!}  But the first day of summer brings a family tradition...besides our DIL birthday!  Every year we pull our a couple of eggs to stand on end.  So much fun!  I was the first one to get it to stand on end!  Yay me! 

See!  It really does stand by itself!!!

The egg originally was Daughter #3's egg, but she was having trouble.  She got another egg out a bit later and got it to stand and it is still standing 6 hours later!!!  I'll let it stay until it falls.
As for my egg, Daughter #2 accidentally knocked it over before supper.  We got it up, but it got knocked over and while trying to upright it it ended up with a nick in the bottom!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
