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.

4-wheeler


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.
