Summer Girls

Last night, the girls humored me by allowing me to take them into the field for an updated photo {thank you to Auntie Kate for the gorgeous dresses!} … they grow so quickly over the summer with all that wonderful sun and wind and fresh air … I know these precious girls are gifts from the Lord – they are not mine, but have been entrusted to Abby & I to raise while here on this earth. We both feel so blessed to have such a wonderful responsibility….


P.S. Do you want some tips for taking photos of your children? I can include them in future posts, if you are interested. 🙂


P.P.S. We also had our mid-pregnancy ultrasound today  – and we were able to bring the girls into the room to “see” their baby sister/brother. It was very sweet … seeing the baby wave at them and move his/her arms around … seeing the gorgeous heart beating away … we did not find out the gender (in case you’re wondering) … so it will be a delightful surprise once the baby is born! I have been feeling very good with this pregnancy – other than feeling pretty tired. As soon as the sun sets, I set! No late nights for me! Muscles are sore but that is normal. Hard to believe half of the pregnancy is over already.

admin yes, they are learning to swim! The older ones, especially. 🙂 We do not have formal swimming lessons but we have had a pool set up in our yard for the summer every year which truly helps!

Maike They look all so very pretty. Some look a lot like you. The second from the right looks like she might be one of the more cheeky confident type of girl while others look very calm. It is so interesting seeing them grow up, hearing about their thoughts, likings, personalities. Only I forgot by now how everyones name is. ^_^ Have they learned to swim yet?
