nothin' but blessings

we have been blessed
by amazing weather!

my youngest grandson
is here on the farm,
so i can watch him
while mommy works...

we walked and played on the farm
and oh yes, that eagle was soaring again!

then the other grandson joined us
for a few hours to play!

our daughter, son in law and
grandson moved into
our guest cabin on the farm.

they will stay in the cabin
for the next two months
while they prepare for
the big move to austria
for missionary work.
(their lease was up at the house
they rented)

loading up my husband's truck
they drove that half an hour
with a jam packed truck!

when my daughter drove up
(yes, she drove that rig)
i had the song, "and they loaded up
their truck and they moved to
beverly... hills that is"  ha.
it was quite the sight to see!

they are not keeping much
because they are not taking anything
with them, but suitcases to vienna!
some of their possessions went into storage
and a LOT of it is being sold via
craigslist and garage sales!

after church we decided
it was time for some relaxing
and family time.
we had a nice big bonfire
and roasted hot dogs and
marshmallows for s'mores!
it was a lovely way to unwind
after a busy weekend.

even an impromptu soccer game was had! :)

a weekend filled with

and you?
i hope you had a blessed
weekend as well and took time
to just be thankful!

Sounds like your weekend was BLESSED!

How wonderful to have them living on the property for 2 months before they leave. :)

I just saw that little "guest cabin" from our track meet last week and wondered if anyone lived in it.

Our weekend was totally BLESSED by a 4 1/2 day visit from son, daughter-in-love, and precious grandson. Sooo... FUN to be with them for more than just a couple of hours (our usual visit).

This week is BUSY ... but I will be READY for a coffee date after this week. :)
