7 in 7: Day 4

Hello, August.

2013 has just raced by so far.  Unbelievable.

Let's take a look at where we were last August (in photos)...

We had some rain, but not nearly as much as this year!  And we were driving our Suburban for the most part.

S was just 17, H was 12 and Z was 10.  We went to Cliff's as a family.

J was getting old enough to finally be able to socialize well with her big sister.  They were each other's good friends.

Daddy rode roller coasters with the older kids at Cliff's.

Mama stayed with the younger kids (both 7-1/2 at the time) while the big kids rode big kid rides.  Aww, I miss my red sunglasses!

We took day trips in our 14-passenger van.  Yep, all five kids entranced with some kind of cartoon video.  Look at J's front teeth!

S was just beginning her senior year of high school.

How time does fly!!


  1. Loved the pictures....what great memories! Didn't know you all had a big van...we love ours! Beautiful family:)

  2. My post tomorrow talks about Augusts of years past! I hadn't seen your blog post at all.. just a funny coincidence that we both are referring to previous years.

  3. Thank you, Hope Rising Farm. Yes, we've had the van a couple years now. Our youth group likes it a lot (for borrowing). We like to road trip in it so everyone can spread out.

  4. It is hard to believe that that was 1 year ago, already!

    I like your yellow and orange blouse :)
