a nice day…

we are having a lovely day today! it was super sunny when we woke up, promising to be hot, but its gone a bit cloudy, but is still warm with a nice breeze! all windows are open, the back door is open and the boys are playing outside.  well, jonah is sleeping upstairs…  we’ve had some gorgeous weather lately, very hot and a bit humid yesterday. we had a picnic  with some folks from church and the boys were super sweaty afterwards.  saturday was warm but overcast, though we still managed some time up at the lickeys.   i’m very sorry that i have  not been very good with bringing my camera…will have to try better!  *BUT* here are some pics from the last week and this morning!

so if you are on facebook you might have seen last weekend my post about having a family of 8 come to stay 2 nights with us!  well, it was a bit manic at times, but not really.  it was good fun. they are a lovely american family who were here on holiday and to pass out some christian tracts at the rotary convention here in birmingham.  they are from oklahoma, though the mom is from here down in devon.  they have 5 girls and 1 boys, 18 years- 3 years!  it was nice to talk to fiona a bit about homeschooling as well.  the 2 older girls were talkative about what they like to do, i.e. photography, sewing, card making and baking.  so sweet!
