My Grandfather's Cousin's Grandchildren, Becky and Keith, and Great-Grand-daughter, Rachel came up for a visit this weekend!!! To save time, we just say we're 'kinfolk'.....it's a lot faster! :)
they came in Friday night, and Samuel got to come over for supper and meet them!
waiting for them to get here....Samuel got new strings for our guitar!
Amy and Peter played ping pong

getting over the gate to get back on the road
Along the way, there were so many little flowers on the way...you almost don't see them, unless you look for them, but I think they are God's little reminders for us that he's always there for us, and loves us!!!!! :D
"He leads me beside the still waters"
"Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests;
but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head."
"You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fullness of joy;
at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore."
Group picture - It's sorta like a group hug, but more fun!!!
Daniel, Rachel, Becky and Keith
Peter, Sarah, Daddy and Esther
We really enjoyed having y'all and hope you came come visit again sometime!!! :D
the little reminder that Rachel left for us on the white board :)
