Another bright spot this summer was having the Kemmis family over. It had been awhile, so we celebrated multiple birthdays that evening. The more the merrier, right? We took loads of photos, so they speak for the gaggle of fun we had!
Aunt Veronica and Mom enjoyed checking up on the roses in bloom. These have such special meaning; Aunt Veronica gave the Tiffany rose to Grandma Hulslander. It's thriving in its new home!
Some before-supper hoops

After-supper Catch Phrase. As hilarious as it gets!
The family birthday cake and the laughter that ensued. :)
Our faithful Blue Bell scoopers did a great job again!
This girl...always so lovely!!
To finish off a fantastic evening of fellowship...
Matt demonstrated his new set of animal calls... fascinating!
One warm, sunny afternoon this summer found us at our local shooting range honing our marksmanship skills with Dad as our patient pistol pedagogue.

Things are coming along!
A little butterfly fluttered off and on our target. If only it knew...
Thank you, Dad, for this fantastic experience!
On the way home...Amber waves of grain

We always love piano playing...so it was a wonderful treat to be able to attend Nathan and Claire's recital with their teacher, Mrs. Nielson.
We began the afternoon listening to the
primary grade pupils.
It was so fun to watch the little ones earnestly share their piano pieces...how darling!
The next recital was presented by the high schoolers...
Claire and Nathan both played BEAUTIFULLY! So graceful and exact...it was a blessing to see how much they have learned!
It's always a joy to visit with Nathan and Claire's
Congratulations, Nathan and Claire!
Thank you for letting us be a part
of such a wonderfully musical afternoon!
