The Lewis Edition: June Fun!

Uncle Russell enjoying baby Daniel ...

... and sharing a snack with Caitlyn.

Uncle Russell's violin playing put this little fella to sleep! 

We carpooled to Tennessee with Deborah and Daniel.
Caitlyn makes the best seat partner! 

The trip to Tennessee was in honor of Daddy and Mama's 50th Anniversary!
I'm so grateful for them and their faithfulness to one another!❤

A few pics from their special anniversary day!

While in Tennessee, Caitlyn enjoyed meeting Ginger,
our friends, the Ashes, milk cow

 This calf couldn't get enough of licking me
once he finished his bucket of milk!

Back home...
My sweet, diligent student, Josiah.

We have so much fun together!

We had some more clearing and dirt work done.







After the leveling was completed we were able to plant grass!
Here it is, just barely coming up!

Look closely! ;)

Our neighbor made a sign for our porch ... I mean, Daisy's porch! ;)
We love it, Rod!

We bought a small travel trailer!

So looking forward to taking a trip in it!!!

Lydia celebrated her 16th birthday!

My sweet friend, Becky (her mom)


Our cat, who disappeared with her last two kittens
soon after we moved, came back for about 24 hours.

She is pregnant again!
We miss her, and hope she comes home to stay! 

Our jolly green pond! 😂
Going to be working on this ...

 Marigolds I started from seed

Squash plants have always been one of my favorites!

Summer salad, with vegetables from our garden and Deborah's!

Russell, playing for a Sunday morning service
at a church in Longview.

The Lewis Edition: May

In May Russell and I attended the Founder's Conference
in Louisville, Kentucky.

So thankful for these godly men!
The conference was wonderful.

The view from our hotel room!

Working on the top of this building = not my dream job! 😲

We got to visit my family on the way there and back.

Sweet big brother Hugh letting sis brush his hair.


We brought my dog, Daisy, home to live with us!
She was great on the ride home and actually seemed to enjoy it!

Sweet girl!

 She quickly established herself in this spot!

A few highlights from our music students' recital!

Sam and Tessa played, "Cripple Creek."

 Will has grown so much in his violin playing this year!

Anna and Lydia played, "Amazing Grace."

 Spring in Texas!

Our neighbor cow... 

... and miniature colt!

I attended one of Russell's rehearsals and enjoyed
feeling like a fly on the wall. :)

Concert time!

First-ripe tomatoes from our plants!

We had a porch put on our house!

Daisy approves. 😌

So do we!  We are loving it!!
