I'm gonna miss fireflies.
And maybe all the people that belong to these shoes:

And Cache will miss these guys:

Thanks for the party Aimee and Anne.
 We felt love. 
Lots of love for lots of people. 

Our hearts are full.


And so is our moving truck.

We are so ready.

I can already smell the wheat fields.

Mom, I'm comin home.

Father's day.
Great day.
Good breakfast.
Made us late for church.
Great talks in church. 
Devin got new socks.
The man loves new ankle socks.
Brazil played in the world cup.

Philly cheese steak sandwiches and curly fries
were requested, and served.

Cache said the Blessing on the food: "...Please bless Lucy, please bless
Brazil to win, and please bless Cade to come over."

Brazil scored DURING the blessing.
(Devin gasped and did a silent cheer.
I kicked him under the table.)

You want Cache prayin for ya. 
His prayers are powerful.

Cade showed up about 10 minutes later.

Philly Cheesesteaks and... Yes we are packing, packing, packing.

Yummy bar ties. My sis. Sarah's idea. They were a hit.
Thanks sissy.

Spent the evening talking to the Furniss family.
Love them.
Man we are going to miss some people here.
OH well. Can't think about. 

Talked to my dad.
I have a great dad.
I can't wait to go home and ride in the combine with my dad.
If I can get my belly up there...hmm.
Maybe not.

Thought about my Grandpa's.
I LOVE my grandpa's.
The thought of them always ALWAYS makes me laugh.

Thought about my father in-law.
And again, Laughed.  
If you want to know my father in-law, Devin is just like him.

They don't come better.

Always Happy,VERY silly,hardworking,never critical,
 faithful to the very last cell of 
their bodies.  But most of all: KIND.

I love fathers.
Thank you father's everywhere for working so hard.

What can i say more than this video was
sent straight to us. Devin and I are both up around 2am.
Our racing minds about the
future would not let sleep settle in on us.

I think I will go sleep now.
I think i will sleep well if this storm doesn't get too bad.
I hope Devin will too...
Sometimes I get a glimpse of what it would be like
to be the father, to carry that burden of leading and supporting a family.
Of course i can help as much as I can, but most of my energies are needed
to upkeep another part of the family.
I'm glad I have my job. I'm not cut out for his.
Single mother'
Father's....Thank you.

Watch that video. It will touch your heart and uplift you!
(thanks for sharing miss Annie)

The instigator of Cowboy week and well, most things.

Stuff that happens during cowboy week:

Dad's new name: "partner"
Cache : "Sheriff"
Me: "Mam" or "outlaw"
The reason for Naomi's screams: She Broke the law.
Impressed by: Cache making his own lasso out of a monkey tail and purse strap.
Also that Cache can move our big couch across the house by himself 
(blocks off the kitchen to make the jail for outlaws.)
Cowboys work hard everyday: thus digging in the dirt before 7am.
More of cowboy week to come...

Second Attempt at photoshop:
I googled my brains out and figured out how to clone out
the shed in the background.

It's apparently cowboy week. 
Last week was rock star week. And so it goes...
Cowboy week is my favorite.  
More pictures coming. I haven't edited pictures for so long I
forgot how much fun it is.  So those are coming after I get my pregnant belly
through 55 minutes of Yoga, make dinner, and finish preparing 
for the Young woman's activity tonight.

I should probably shower in there somewhere...meh. Overrated.

{ n a o m i }


What is this face? So funny.


Isn't she pretty?  I am not this pretty at 6:45 AM. Or ever.
Good thing a camera only shoots in one direction!
And good thing my neighbors were all still asleep.
First Attempt at Photoshop. 
Photoshop is SO crazy hard!
I can't even figure out how to crop a picture.
It took me 2 days to even figure out how to turn it on.

But i LOVE it. luvit-luvit-luvit
One day i will get this down.

These pictures are old. From Easter.
Devin snapped most of em after church.
Not the highest quality because I didn't realize 
my automatic focus was broken, so I tried to 
fix em in photoshop.

But I don't know how to use photoshop. SO mostly these are
all me just playin around with all it's bells and whistles.
Any help would be warmly welcomed.

I'll make you a peanut butter and banana sandwich
with Honey on top.
Or cookies.
I prefer the pb-banana sandwich these days.
with honey on top.

"Naomi look at me I have a doggie in my camera!!"

This girl loves doggies.
I love this girl.
