We were able to take a few days this year and head north to the Mountains (hills) of Tennessee with some friends. Chip decided about 2 days before we left that we would be able to go. The weather here has been so dry and that doesn't make for a good hay crop. We went anyway and Praise God, it rained almost the whole time we were gone. When we left, it was brown and the grass would crackle when you walked on it. Now, it is green and needs cutting. Joleigh loves to camping and when she saw me packing the camper (at the last minute, talking about stress) she was sooooooooo excited! Jacob was a great helper, helping me carry things to get ready for our departure, as well as helping me look after our little one. We had a fabulous time, until Thursday evening when I came down with 103 temperature. I think it was strep throat and my fever finally went down enough that we could leave as planned on Friday morning back home. Thank God for friends, who jumped in there and took care of my children while I was out of it. LOL Well, enjoy the pictures. They say it all! More pictures to follow

Can't believe that Joleigh is 20 months old today. Where has the time gone? She is growing so much and doing great!
She sleeps thru the night, (most of the time)
She signs several words,
calls for her friends, Abby, Jonathan and Stephanie when we get in the truck. (she thinks we are going to church and see her friends)
She loves her brother (most of the time)
Talks all the time and loves to sing with the radio or whoever is singing.
Eats great! This child loves green beans, broccoli and spaghetti (favorites)
Is starting to acknowledge potty training.
Anyway, she is really doing great and is absolutely precious! The wait was long and tiring, but worth every minute of it!
July 4th pictures from D'daddy's and our house! The calf picture was taken because he is so cute! He was about a month premature and survived! He is really small! Enjoy!
