Gathering the Moments ~ July

Books, books, books!

Sweet Ethan. He picks me flowers, roots and all.

Odds and ends from July.

Canvas art. 
We all worked together on this and each added their own touch.

Elijah sure loves his little brother.

Not pictured are the days the boys and I worked with a friend getting their house ready to sell, the church play days, cleaning the medical clinic each weekend, working in the garden with Antonia, the quiet (or not so quiet with these boys) days at home and helping yet another family pack and move. I seem to be making friends only to help them pack up and move! Was it only last month I told my sister I was getting a little bored? That didn't last long! :)

July, you were good to us and we'll be sad to see you go.

Thinking About Home

In other news I've got a new Lilla Rose team member! My sister took advantage of the free shipping on new member kits and signed up to be a Lilla Rose independent consultant!

Beautiful collages to commemorate your wonderful July. Terrific communal art projects, too. The photo of your son looking at the sparkler is special.

I am so amazed at your photos each month! At your first "Gathering" post, you were looking ahead to the big (huge!) move to Alaska...and now here you are, all of you looking happy and at home and invested in your new home! As someone who has lived my entire life within a one hundred mile radius, I applaud your courage and your sense of adventure. I hope that if the Lord moved in our hearts to move, we'd do it with the willingness that I see in you.

Thanks for "gathering" the moments of July!

Beautiful photos as always! You journal your lives through your camera and it's so amazing!

You are settling in well. Looking forward to seeing you in person one day in Alaska!
