The summer has been hard. My dad seems to be getting depressed. It is exhausting going back and forth staying with him, and it is hard knowing there is nothing we can do to make him happy. You always hear the saying that the woman is the heart of the home and it is more evident than ever now! Things will never be the same without our mom. We are still trying to sell his house and figure out where will be best for him to live. I will be glad when he is settled.
We are trying to make the best out of our summer. I have more pictures to share but it will have to wait until another day!

This poem was found in the back of one of my mom's Bibles. It summed up my mom and what was important to her. She loved her family and especially her grandchildren! I remember years ago a friend of mine telling me that her mother would have a negative remark every time she would tell her she was pregnant again. My mom was always thrilled when one of us would announce that we were pregnant. My mom had hoped to live to see each one of her grandchildren come to know the Lord as their saviour. There are still young ones that haven't made that decision yet and others hopefully to be born. That makes me sad that she won't get to witness that here on earth. But what a wonderful family reunion we will all have one day! My sister made a comment the other day that her thoughts of heaven are so much sweeter thinking of our mom being there. I look forward to the day that we are all there together!

We have pecan tree limbs down everywhere. There were two huge ones in the front.

The pool is great for the kids while I get work done!
I tried to take lots of pictures. For several years I would always wonder if that would be the last summer at my parent's house. It is very sad knowing that this is it. All of my children went to that house as newborns, had spend the nights, spent all of their holidays there, learned how to swim..... I just can't imagine not going there!
