Moving Slow

It's a rainy Saturday morning, and I'm doing my favorite thing I like to do on Saturday mornings; moving slow.  I got to spend time with Jim before he rushed off to his Saturday morning. 
We laid in bed. 
I listened to the rain. 
We talked about sons. 
We planned how much room I would have to send gifts to Oklahoma in his back pack.

He left for work, only after discovering our iron decided to up and quit.

I got a ladder and razor blade to scrape the contact paper off our arch window, but that awesome man of mine had secured the blind properly to the window sill so I couldn't get to the contact paper.  That's ok though, as long as the blind is properly secured, I will never see that ugalee contact paper again.

I am checking all-things-web-important-to-me and will shortly wake Grace to go to two Rummage Sales.  In the rain. 

Moving slow...a perfect Saturday morning.

3.    Fussy painter.
4.    Yelling in room.
5.    Too many helpers.
6.    Borrowed extension rod breaks.
7.    Running out of paint.
8.    Sore neck and shoulders.
9.    Siblings bickering.
10.  Cry on bed.

A Week in Photos

Dave had his last track meet on Friday.  He is the one on the outside lane, in front.  I took this photo because I love the view of the Bridgers from the stands. 

 There were three weddings this weekend with EFree families.  
We attended this one, Josh and Lindsay.
Both of their fathers took part in the ceremony.

Although you can't really see it in this photo, her colors were plum and gold. 

Lainey (from Silver Springs, MD), Peggy (one of my hiking buddies) and I enjoying some wedding fare.

Jim and Raegan.  She loved the dill pickles I fed her!  A girl after my own heart.

Off to the honeymoon, somewhere outdoors, no doubt!
The most beautiful bridesmaid, and Grace's BFF, Cammie.
And then there was a photo session....

...taking full advantage of our white-primed walls...
...and showing off new haircuts.  They are each missing 8" of hair...

This is my favorite!

The Group

Emily having a little problem with Grace and her date.

These two are way sweeter than they appear in pictures!

Can you find Grace's shoes?  
The sparkly Toms! 
She was comfortable all night!

Emily made up with Nick.  She let him take Grace to prom.

A few final words from the fathers!
