Summer Glory

Well, we are here in Tennessee! Although, I have not unpacked my camera cord, so I can't post any pictures yet. I will soon though. It is really pretty here and Brad did a great job picking out our home on his own. We love it.

I was just thinking about all the sweet people we left behind. During this move I was overwhelmed with the kindness of our friends and family. I had friends show up armed with cleaning supplies as the truck pulled away, warm meals and yummy treats brought by, offers to take my little ones, home made breakfast when our kitchen was packed and gone, sweet goodbye cards, even a little ice cream social goodbye party. Honestly I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I felt like I was sent off with so much love--we were filled and overflowing with it. I hope that we can share some of it with those around us here in Tennessee

I will share some fun summer pictures that are on my computer. Our good friends and neighbors threw a big summer party with lots of good food, great people, big blow up toys for the kiddos and even a bike parade. What a night! Fun had by all-

Cannon REALLY enjoyed the food!

Summer in all its glory!

Good luck with getting unpacked! I'm glad it is beautiful there. I wish I was there to help you, since I just went through it and know how hard it is! Good luck!

I have been thinking about you guys! Glad you are in your home and doing well. Coleman made Clayton's day when he called. I will have to have Clayton call this weekend. Love the pictures. And that one of Coleman, Clayton and Ryan is so cute!

Oh melanie, it was so fun to see those pictures. I miss you guys so much it physically hurts! I actually got choked up seeing the cute boys. I'm so happy that your neighbors and friends were so kind to you when you had to move. I'm sure Tennessee will be the same! I can't wait to see some pics of your new home though so find that camera cord!! :)

I think of you often Melanie. Made your Blueberry Oatmeal Chippers yesterday. I am so thrilled to hear from you. Tennessee is getting the cream of the crop! Yes, find that cord soon. Hope the boys are transitioning to school well. Please let me know your address and number. Tell Coleman that King Cole, the fish, is doing great!

I bet your life has been CRAZY these last few weeks. Well we miss you guys so much already, are you ready to come back yet?:) Family get togethers just aren't the same. I'll be waiting for the next post!

We're so happy for you and glad to hear that life is lining out for you in Tennessee! It's just not the same around here without Coleman knocking on the door to see if Mags can play. We miss you and hope you get settled and comfy in your new house very soon! Can't wait to see more pics on your blog!
