Moments from Last Week

Thomas reading them one of his favorite books, Mr. Elephant's Birthday Party.  He let me know that he would like to have it when he has his own children some day.

Emily is taking a few steps at a time now.

Abraham and Sarah brought this inside for me.

Isaac finished building a dock.  They are having a great time running and jumping off the end into the pond.

Abraham and Sarah harvested the onions for me.

Emmy has been getting lots of rides!


  1. I like this series of photographs giving a little glimpse into your world. :-)

  2. Looks like good times in your neck of the woods-love that Thomas is reading to younger ones. That little Emily's smile - happy happy joy joy!

  3. I love the photo of Emily standing in her adorable dress. She looks like a little prairie girl. The tonka truck full of farm goodies is awesome. :)

    If you're ever in the mood, I'd love to hear more about your pond. What sort of maintenance does it need? How big is it and do you stock it with fish or ducks? Why is it not jam packed with cattails?? :p

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. Adore all the sibling love in these moments!

  5. i adore the name emily. if i had had a girl, she would have been emma or emily!!

    you have seven children, what a blessing!! that's a lovely picture of thomas reading!!
