Haircut Anyone?

One of Stephen's friends and his brother from Branson,Mo. came to visit us this summer. Jessie was unable to find a job this summer. He really wanted a haircut but didn't have money for one so Stephen gave him a free one. Stephen learned to do this from some of his buddies. I think it will come in handy at college too.


Here are two of the greatest friends a girl could ever have!

First Day of School 08

Here are some wild and crazy guys who know how to suck every last breath out of summer. They were in the parking lot at school this morning relaxing in the back of this truck in this kiddy pool. I thought it was quite funny!!!

What is in a name?

Here is Stephen with our old dog that looks similar to the dog that lives at our house. This was actually our first Sheltie named Tenebrae. Does anyone know that a Tenebrae is? It has some meaning for us but when you know what it means you think why would you name a dog that. Names have had meanings for years! What does your name mean? Have you ever looked it up? Do you live up to the meaning of your name or do you even want to?

Anyone recognize this game?

This is one of our favorite family games at Grandpa's House.

Sarah striking a pose.

This is the playing field.

Grandpa is quite good at this game.

Grandpa, the winner and enjoying a nice cool glass of lemonade to enjoy his victory.

Actually, Stephen was the winner! Grandpa was second.


This is a picture of Sarah and some of her classmates. I think it is such a good picture I just had to post it.

Cousins Are Grand!

This is Hannah and her cousins. Hannah is in the middle. On Hannah's right shoulder is Sarah (Matt's middle girl) to Hannah left is Amy (Matt's oldest girl) and behind Hannah is Anne Marie (Matt's baby). This post is mainly for you Jenn.

My Senior!

It is hard to beleive but Stephen is going to be a senior this year. Wow time flies as many of you know. He plans to attend Indiana Wesleyan University but is unsure of his major yet. He loves nature, art, music, soccer, and filming. If you can think of a career with any of these let us know and I will pass them on to him. These are just a few of his senior pictures. I didn't want to bore you with all 20 of them. The first one is my favorite.

KFC Camp

Rachel and two of her campers

Tie Dying

Now here is a real messy job. My sister-in-law Rhonda heads this class up every year at KFC camp along with her helpers Amy, Macia, Marlane, and this year Erica joined in the fun. Just to let you know that dye does not come off easily.

Here you go Keetha

Job Wanted

If you have any summer projects and you need a little extra my son...he's needing work. He didn't quite get an early start on his applications for summer employment and he's been doing odd jobs here and there but he is pretty bored as you can see...ha

Mud Slide

I took Rachel and her friend Kileigh fishing. Kileigh got her pole stuck in a tree and as I was trying to pull it sort of pulled me in .....well as you can see I sort of got messy. It was funny!

KFC Camp

Rachel and Emily were counselors together this year at KFC. Here is a picture of them with one of their favorite soon to be campers ....Heidi. Their smiles crack me up you can tell they had to really work hard at smiling. This picture was taken on Wednesday when you are starting to get really, really tired. The did a great job and I was proud of them for doing it.

Hannah got braces

Hannah got her braces on about a week ago. She is doing well and her teeth are already looking straighter! Remarkable!

Summer Moonlight Night

I took this picture during the last full moon. It looks like two moons but I think I moved while taking the picture but I still thought it was cool.
