We kinda laid low that day, no photos, however I have one I took when I was at their place Saturday. I was so surprised to see a small wool patch blanket I made years ago and forgot about completely.
At Monday Night Meal we had several guests. Even though Hannah (on the right) was visiting all the way from New York, I think baby TJ took center stage.

Tuesday I was invited to a wonderful 70th birthday tea for a dear friend of many. Here she is reading the words each of us chose to describe her.
Wednesday I got to meet the new family dog. Ruff is Skye's dog.
In the evening we had many come to an open house for a family that serves at a camp in Honduras. They brought their oldest daughter to Taylor, so this is their first photo as a family of five, minus Ellie.
Look who arrived Thursday evening? Oh, actually this photo was taken Friday after moving Jared into his third-floor room in the dorm at Anderson U. Sara's feet were soooo tired!
Saturday, the big day--the bloggy-friends reunion!
|Sara all dolled-up waiting for the friends to arrive.|
So here we are: back row--Just a Southern Girl (my SIL, Kim); oldfangled (my DIL, Karen); Bug's Eye View (Dana); ...make music from your heart to the Lord. Eph. 5:19 (Sara); and me on the front row (why on earth did I wear yellow?!)

Some shots of our wonderful day:
The counter was covered with food all day, lots of salads and grilled vegetables, and more.
Kim and I prepared some salads, the men took over from there, and the women chatted non-stop!
The big table was the center of a variety of activities: conversation, crafts, food, games, even baby crawl space.
Today, Sunday, we said goodbye to Sara and Jared, hopeful for more wonderful times like these.
