If this looks like a model, it is because he is. At least, he models for us all the time. He tries so hard that sometimes his smile looks a little fake. But not here. This is our grandson and he can model for us any time he wants. These pictures were taken at Hale Farm and Village in July.

These pictures were taken yesterday as the boys, Caleb and Oliver, picked strawberries. Knowing their mother, I'm sure they will be very happy to eat all the wonderful things she makes with those juicy berries.
By the way, I failed to say that yesterday was Ron's and my anniversary. We've been married 48 years and we are so glad when we think of all our children and grandchildren. What blessings they are to us.
It was also National Dog Day. We didn't know it at the time, but we gave our Maggie a bath, not a way she would have chosen to celebrate the big day.
I hope all of you are paying close attention to the election preparations for the big change in 2016. If we don't get out the vote of all the people who have just given up because they can't see any difference in the parties, we will cease to be a free nation. We have some wonderful candidates who have the knowledge and skill to make the changes necessary to get this nation back on the right road and a great nation once again.

Aussie has been practicing his Rubik's Cubes and more for quite some time now. He competed in two or three competitions this summer. Here he is in Atlanta. He came home with two wins...a first place in the 6x6x6 sf 3rd place in the 7x7x7. We are very proud of his accomplishment.

Mommy, Daddy, Caleb and Oliver visited the Denver Zoo in April...Boy the time has gone fast. Here it is near the end of August. School classes are starting across the country. Caleb starts school for the first time tomorrow. I'm anxious for him to meet new friends. I am praying he will make good choices. I am praying his teacher is not only a believer, but active in her Christian faith. I am praying that their good family values will be upheld in the classroom.

Well school has started in Tennessee and the triplets are back to classes. Algebra challenges and there isn't as much free time. But summer was great and the kids made good use of the beach near-by.
Here they are with a couple of friends in July.

First, I am posting this picture of our youngest grandson who visited here in July with his family. It was hard to choose a layout, since I have not been posting to this blog for a long time. I'm hoping to get back to a regular routine. I would like to make a commitment, but am a little afraid to do so just yet. I have lots and lots of layouts to share. I am happy that I just happened to think of the song, I Want to Make the World Turn Around by Steve Miller. It is a wonderful song and goes well with these pictures of Oliver and our globe.
I received this newsletter several days ago from Rick Warren. I kept it because I wanted to know what it said., but I didn't have the time to commit to it that day. I just now read it and it is very meaningful to me. Ron and I may be celebrating our 48th anniversary this next week and I can relate. It has not always been perfect, but we have been committed. all along. Thank God.
I am copying the whole letter here. Hopefully it will mean a lot to you and you will be able to relate in some way.
To Make a Connection, make a Commitment
