|Finished our time in NC with delightful friends at their amazing barn home. |
So glad we were there for church, singing, fellowship and even a showing of AGENDA 2!
|The more the merrier! Off to feed the fish!|
|Crosby reading I Spy with Mr. Brown, a WWII hero and wonderful friend.|
|This is THE best idea ever:|
A swing that swings through the living room and over the dining room table. Really!
|Loved our Sunday afternoon here catching up and relaxing.|
|Ended up in TN for a happy Saturday working and singing at our friend's farm for the Arts & Ag Tour. |
This is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places around. :)
|Christian and crew keeping things in order.|
|Still catching up at the end of the day!|
|As we left TN we had the lovely surprise of meeting up with this happy family from church at Loves! |
They just bought a limousine for their 3 hour trek each way every Sunday
from their home in AR. Littles and Charlie especially loved this. :)
|Oh so thrilled when we find happy playgrounds along the way to use up the ENERGY!!|
|Getting Cassidy's ever faithful printing press rolling for Bible Bee!|
|Charlie and Carver working hard on their Bible Bee study.|
|Imagine the thrill of this rather large spider walking across the back up camera!|
|Hauling stuff to little Post Offices all over the place. 'Tis what we do!|
|Fiddle practice at the bleachers. This is so Lina. :) The park never sounded lovelier!|
|One of the ways we attack ailments: charcoal water!|
|Frank & Butter inspire the rest of us! |
Frank finished 200 pushups and Butter followed up with 130. Not bad for 7 and 8 years old. :)
|Such a blessing to drive through such picturesque farm country!|
|Enjoyed a lovely Memorial Day cookout with this dear clan.|
|Crosby assisting with a muffin project.|
|We love people that let us learn from their work projects!|
|Clean laundry! Count your many blessings! :)|
|Yep. The clean laundry was...very short lived. :)|
|We did NOT have the life skills to jump into the middle of this one. Ha!|
|We definitely have a shameless sharing problem when it comes to adorable babies like this. :)|
|Reconnected with the Odgaards, the inspiring couple who stood up for marriage in Iowa.|
They lost their beautiful wedding and floral business but the Lord has given them a new mission.
We praise the Lord for faithful Christians like this!!
|The Leaning Tower of Chapman?! Our little family power walk was 5 miles!|
|Found about 1 million tadpoles! Crosby filled her water bottle with them, Campbell had his baggie full of them, and this one was on the way from tadpole to frog in the frisbee!|
|Everything black is tadpoles. Finally! |
Something moving faster than the Bowers brothers!
|Everyone but Mama thinks sardines are the ideal bus food. She prefers chocolate. :)|
|And YAY! Her new walking record! 13 miles! |
This does not happen often but it's nice to know it could. :)
|A sweet couple in NE graciously made us this feast and delivered it to the bus.|
|AGENDA 2 showing in beautiful 1927 theater. God was so good to answer our prayers about a projector glitch that had never happened before and seemed unfixable. Thank you, Lord!!|
|It is a privilege to visit with so many different people! Praise the Lord for sending them to us!!|
|Bible Bee time in Sioux Falls with Chap. Always fueled with cashews. :)|
|Loved it! Found many rocks like this in a state park in IA.|
|We average about 5 events per week.....thus a lot of our pictures look like this!? |
There are groups of people willing to stand for the truth everywhere.
|Badlands, SD on our way to Rapid City. Grand time climbing. And sweating!|
|Just the sign to help ya relax!|
|Did we mention climbing? And sweating?!|
|The push-up saga continues!|
|Refueling during a showing. :)|
|Yet another life skill is.... use of available products!|
2 hours before we were deep in the dirt at Badlands State Park.
Spritz, spray and powder away! :)
|The booth crew. Love when it's long enough to fit almost everybody!|
|Quick stop at Dinosaur Park...built in the 50's and overlooks Rapid City.|
|Carolina. Breathing deeply. All by herself. :)|
|Mt. Rushmore. Very fun. And with Cassidy, mostly recovered and always smiling!|
|Plotting yet the next adventure. Or takeover. Or meal?|
|We love the clouds out West! |
Praise the Lord for His marvelous creation and for giving us time to enjoy it!
