New babies, summer fun, blessings & a parade

The weekly phone call from my sister….
The excitement of upcoming birth of her daughter…. My niece— the Little Miss…. Oh, we can’t wait to meet her…. Hold her, love on her….
My dear friend giving birth to her daughter Sarah Jean this morning…. A perfect gift from God….
Swimming….
Listening to Sassafras read aloud to Mr. Conductor from a stack of library books….
Picking more green beans….
Making supper together as a family, all 5 of us in the kitchen—organized chaos….
Going to a little village summer parade with some of the extended family…. Laps full of tootsie rolls and bubble gum…. Waving and waving and waving as the floats pass by….
Mr. Conductor’s absolute joy in watching the old cars and tractors putt-putt past….
Grandma and Grandpa hugs….
Swimming at an uncle’s pool after the parade…. With the cousins….
Finishing the day with family movie nite in the cool, dark house….
Ah, the pleasures of home and hearth, of family and friends.
