All the Birdies in the Nest


My mother used to say, "Well, here we all are." She'd say it when all seven of us were home at the same time. I thought it today when all our kids came for lunch, bringing all our grandchildren. The three youngest are pictured above. Aria is one month old, Sam is six months old and next is Miss Bug who is almost sixteen months old. Then comes Finn, almost twenty two months old! The fairies are both three. There are lots of them and it's heavenly!





Our good boys







Foxy watching her girl and her baby. Isn't sleeping in the sun dreamy?



Shadows accounted for! It was on and off, on and off with the swimsuits, dresses, fairy dresses . . . I have such summer fever. How will I make it through five more days of school? A catastrophic thing happened to the school's air conditioner and it won't be fixed soon, so I am going to WILT at school all week. I'm going to TRY to be my very nicest, full of love and good humor. I think I'll need popsicles.

My, you are blessed with a precious family. I know how you feel, my whole family was home this weekend too. It was so nice to look around the table and see all the smiling faces, and no empty seats!

What a lovely time! You have such a beautiful family.
A/c has been out in schools here in Dallas, too. I can't even fathom it. Stay hydrated and think cool thoughts!

There you all are indeed! How very very special. I haven't had all my kids together in one place for years, and that time I forgot to take a picture!

But I remember when all seven of us used to be together in the living room of an evening, and I would wonder at how little space we could fit in, once we all gathered in.

Beautiful people, all of you. Is the one who is lying in the sun with the baby Kelli? She seems to be always catching a few ZZZ's....she's pretty when she sleeps.
