Peach tree and wind

A couple of weeks ago we had some very strong wind during the middle of the night. We didn't pay much attention to it until the next day when I found this.....

What you can't tell from this picture is that is our peach tree. Our peach tree that was fully loaded with Bella Georgia peaches about 1 week away from ripeness. The weight of the heavy, fruit filled limbs combined with the heavy wind snapped the limbs.

It was a very sad day. We were really looking forward to some fresh peaches, making peach preserves, and canning some peaches for this winter.


The kids were given an early birthday present by their paternal grandparents a couple of weeks ago and it has been a huge hit. Here are a couple of pictures of them riding their new 4-wheeler. Thank you so much Nana and Grandpa!!!!

Company Girl Coffee 7/11/09

Good morning everyone. I started this morning by meeting a fellow Company Girl for the first time this morning. ( I will post a picture later today) It was a blessing meeting Sweetie this morning for some coffee before she went to tape at the studio. God is doing some amazing work through her and I look forward to hearing more about her work and getting to know her better.

The boys did a soccer clinic this week and had a great time. Yesterday, at the final clinic they were each given a certificate, a new soccer ball, and a t-shirt. I thought they would love having their own balls that they didn't have to share, but I was wrong. Their favorite thing was the t-shirt, for the rest of the day they proudly wore their new t-shirts and told anyone who would listen about them.

As for Small Things this week. I loved them all. I have been working hard at letting the kids figure out how to some things on their own, so I loved getting points for that. I also loved yesterday's Pause for refreshment. This one is harder with 3 small children, but an excellent reminder that we all need a little bit of time. I opted to join the kids in enjoying an Ice Pop while we played in our kiddie pool in the backyard.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
