We're moving!!!

Okay, the cat is out of the bag..... we are officially moving!!  The "SOLD" sign went up this afternoon and we will be closing on August 19th.  That means that I will have a lot to do in the next 3 weeks so wish me luck.  We are only moving 5 miles from our current home but it will be new schools for all the kids.  It's going to be a big change but our family is so ready for it.  Here are some pics I took today.

Peach Picking

Yesterday I took 4 of the kids to a farm to pick peaches. It was very hot but we got quite a few. I have 1 1/2 bushels sitting inmy kitchen waiting to be prepared. I'm going to make some preserves tomorrow and can some of the others. Here are a few pics I took.

Jonas Brothers Concert

For Katelyn & Madelyn's birthday they both got one ticket to see the Jonas Brothers. We have all been looking forward to this concert for 3 months. Bryan and I took the girls while the boys stayed home with a sitter. Here are some of the highlights.

Blackberry Picking!

This past Saturday our family started a new tradition. We went to a house out in the country and went blackberry picking. Everyone had their own basket except for Brayden who was happy watching us in his stroller.

I was able to make 16 pint jars of blackberry jam, freeze an entire gallon bag, and make this blackberry pie.

I love this video.

I love watching this video. A friend of mine e-mailed it to me tonight and I re-watched it. It is very touching and a good reminder that we are all God's children and we can all make a difference.
