Summer Fun

I start back to school tomorrow, I cant believe that summer is over! It was a great summer with my kids home for awhile at least. I will cherish these memories for a lifetime. I know I wont have that opportunity again. Life goes on and it has exciting times to come.

The end of July we had a family reunion in Fernley Nevada. It was a lot of fun! Jeff's cousin Dee Dee and Todd hosted this year. We camped out in Aunt Nita and Uncle Dennis backyard. They were such great hosts!
We were able to see my neice Lindy and her sweet family! They just happen to live in Fernley too. I am sad I have no pictures of them to post.

We shot a lot of guns in the desert!

Happy Birthday Alysha

I can't believe that my baby is 20!! Although she is wise beyond he years in so many ways. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Here are a few reason why she is so special!

She is the funniest one in the family, and doesn't even try.

She is kind to everyone.

She hates to think anyone is mad or upset with her. She instantly wants to fix it!

She is wonderful with kids, they warm to her instantly, it shows in her new job.

She loves the Lord. Has a strong testimony.

She is a great teacher.

She gives great counsel.

She is strong.

She is my best friend.

Everyone is home for summer. Nick and Alysha are here for several weeks. Nick was blessed to get a internship with O.C. Jones Construction. He is based in the Vallejo office which couldn't be closer to his home. He is learning a lot and loving it. One more year of school and he will be done! They hope he gets a job offer upon graduation. It would be wonderful to have them close. It has been great having Kevin at home. He is doing great.
