We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Dustin's Graduation Festivities

What a weekend! Micah's parents, Dustin, Mary, and Caleb, and Dustin's parents and grandparents came to KY for Dustin's graduation. We had a wonderful time with them. It made for full days and lots of dirty dishes! I love it though. I am always reminded of the admonition to be hospitable and share the things God has given us with others. Elijah- well... not so convinced this is the way to go; especially when it comes to sharing toys with Caleb! It was great practice for him and I think the three boys were good buddies by the end of their trip.
The boys were looking sharp!
After graduation, we had lunch at Huber Farms. I wanted to get some pictures there, but God had different plans. We had a huge storm and had to stay inside the building. Maybe next time!
On Friday evening, we had the whole crowd over for appetizers and fellowship. At one point, I suggested, being the contentious host that I am, that we all play a game. "Four on a Couch"came to mind, even though we hadn't played that one in SEVEN YEARS or so! After I had suggested it, I was not certain it was the best choice... but it was a blast! It's fun when you get a group together that would never be in the position to interact in this particular way and see how each personality adds to the action.
Here are the winners: the Men!
This is what Caleb thought of the action:
I love this picture of Micah's parents with the boys right before they left.
On the last day Mary and Dustin were here, we took all the kiddos to the park at the waterfront.

This summer will mark our eighth year here in Louisville. We love it when family and friends are able to visit.
