An Empty Canvas

Tracy / September 18, 2006

Fall is in the air…and thanks to a productive weekend…we’re showing signs around our home! Our outside “welcome”. Welcome to our home! I can’t keep people from making other words from my Autumn blocks. How many words can you make from Autumn? The weather has been beautiful….Courtney took these pictures from our yard this morning. Crepe Myrtle Purple flowers at…

I’m Back!

Tracy / September 14, 2006

Good Morning! It has been a very long week and I needed to take some time off to take care of things for my family. Thank you so much, Joshua, for blogging for me yesterday! I’m such a blessed mom to have you guys! I enjoyed so much a visit to my Mom’s over the weekend….she won’t know it until…

Remembering Fall

Tracy / September 6, 2006

Good Morning! I hope that you are having a wonderful day and off to a good start! This morning, I was hanging laundry (this is Joshua’s solar system mini quilt drying) and I’m not sure if it’s the “fall” air beginning to blow in, but I had an instant memory of being outside of my high school, at the age…

Only 84 Degrees?

Tracy / September 2, 2006

Hurray! I just heard on the news that the high today is only 84 degrees! Yahoo! Fall is coming. I knew that there had to be an end to all this hot weather some where! It’s been a busy and really fun Labor Day weekend. We stayed home but enjoyed some much needed “down time” as a family. Paul especially,…

Tracy / September 1, 2006

It’s Friday! I’ve been busy working my grand plan, so yesterday, I moved some planters onto the porch and moved off toys and debris that had been there for way too long! I’m already so thrilled with the progress that we’re making (though we still have a way to go!). This morning we were so blessed to pick 2 eggplants!…

T-shirt Dressmaking…

Tracy / August 22, 2006

Sorry for the delay in posting this morning…our internet has been on and off following the storms that rolled through our area last night. We really needed the rain, I’m so thankful for it. Some of our little plants look like they took a beating last evening. I’m hoping they’ll perk up as the day goes on. Today, I’m going…

Split Watermelon?

Tracy / August 16, 2006

Good Morning! I’m so glad to be starting this day feeling almost normal again! There for a while, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever feel like myself! Miss Emma, also, is feeling a little better this morning. It’s so hard to see someone so sweet feeling so bad. She has just wanted to sit in my lap.…

August, Already?

August already? Does anyone else ever seem to be taken off guard by the passing of time? Where do the days go? I wake up, and before I can blink the day is over. It’s incredible, and humbling, to know that I only have so many days and they pass so quickly. I was so thankful we finished yesterday’s projects…

Jacob’s Pride

I know that we have posted pictures of our sunflowers before. This is the latest, taken this morning. I can’t tell you what it does for a child to see a tiny seed that he has planted and tended with his own hands turn into something so beautiful and huge!

Our Garden Mascot

Froggie, is our garden mascot….he keeps the plants company when we are away!

Twin Giants

These are the two newest sunflowers in our yard. We call them the “twin giants”. I think that overall, these have been our favorite plants of the summer!
