We recently went to the Kentucky State Fair as a family. The whole thing was somewhat nostalgic. We saw the animals, ate all the food we could, and then settled down at Cardinal Stadium to hear Brandon Heath and Michael W. Smith (talk about nostalgia). We have been to the fair almost every year since we arrived in Louisville. Evey year, we have had changes as a family. From our arrival as a family of two, to our awaiting the arrival of Andrew the following year, to taking Andrew the year after that, to this year as now a family of four. It was quite different from the first year. We arrived with enough supplies to have lived there several nights quite comfortably packed in our double stroller- the equivalent of a stroller Cadillac. I say all of that to say- how very blessed I felt to have been in such precious company. How we have changed in our years here- and multiplied- by the grace and gift of God!
The boys and I were treated to a trip to the Louisville Zoo as well. We have done alot of walking this week! Andrew loved seeing the animals- but his most exciting memory was of the model Thomas the Tank Engine train set.

As the weather turns cooler (the heat index has been over 100 the past couple of weeks) and I (Tiffany) get more and more brave getting out with both boys, we have attempted to soak up the last drops of summer. One of our recent adventures was at Louisville's Waterfront Park. Andrew loved the water fountains. We were accompanied by our dear friends, who are leaving Louisville on Sunday to begin a new season of life in Louisiana. We are fortunate to have shared the last 5 years with the Meyers. Micah and I are sad to see them go, but excited and thankful for God's hand on their life. I hope for each one reading this that you have or will at some point in life experience friendship that is as much a blessing to you as our relationship with the Meyers.
Micah is back in school!!! My dear husband goes to school, but I can say with certainty that his life isn't school. He makes his family his first priority, beyond his relationship with God. His love and devotion to taking care of me and our children is evident in the choices he makes. He recently turned down a substantial gift because the cost of it on his family was too great. I am proud and honored to be his wife.
Our kitchen is at the back of our house, and as I was cooking the other evening, Micah and Andrew were mowing. Actually, if you were to ask Andrew, they were "playing- mowing the grass". I think today, I will "play- doing the laundry and cleaning the house" and see if it helps my attitude about doing chores!
