Here At Home...

We arrived home last Saturday!
It has been very nice to be back home
and reunited with Daddy.
We also took an additional member home...

Suzie. (She just had a haircut before we left.)
She was my Gramma's dog but she decided to give her to us.
I must admit, even though I'm not much of a dog person,
she is a cutie and, overall, I do like her a lot :)

It sure was nice to be reunited with my babies, though!

I missed singing with them and training them.
I'm glad to say that they are both now quite tame!
I clipped Fluff's wings the other day so
now she can't fly away from me :)

It was very nice, too, to fellowship with my best friend
after so long of being apart!
We had a sleepover last night to make up for the 5 weeks :)
We had a great time and recorded some songs I thought I'd share.

Since I was/am teaching her violin,
we've been playing a lot of violin duets, as well
as with the guitar and banjo!
Here's a song that she can play very well
and I accompanied her with :)
(Excuse the editing on these clips...
the move clip editer wasn't behaving right)

We also decided to record a few of our favorite songs
that we sing everytime we get together...
(Double click each one to play.)

What A Day That Will Be
(My birds were happy to sing with us too ;)

Well, just thought I'd share!
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Tidbits From Our Trip

We've been here about a month now
and my Gramma seems to be doing a bit better.
We hope to travel home in the near future :)
It's been very busy between doctor appointments,
visiting other family, cooking, cleaning, etc...
I have, however, found time to upload

some pictures online for viewing. :)
Since I had some extra time on my hands today,
I thought I'd post some pictures of the trip here.

One of my favorite highlights of our trip
was watching baby sparrows grow up...

The mommy fed them nonstop from 5am to 9pm!
They're now all out and flying!

My Great Gramma likes it when I play music for her.
It's a great blessing to me to bless her
with good,
godly songs...

While staying at Gramma and Great Gramma's,
we often visit my Grampa

who lives only about 20 min. away.
A few weeks ago we went fishing at the pond near him.

My aunt and uncle came as well...

One day there was a great
storm while we were driving...

Tornado sirens were going off and I think it
may have been a funnel cloud that left a lot of damage.

For the 4th of July we went to my aunt and uncles'.
The children had a watergun fight and as I was taking
pictures I noticed it wasn't just the children who enjoyed it...


Later on we drove up to a park and watched fireworks.

A few projects I've done are
repainting my Gramma's flag...

Also, sewing myself, Beth, and my mom's friend's
2 young daughters dresses...

Wednesday we celebrated my
Great Gramma's birthday at her son's.
My Uncle now owns, w
hat used to be
her business, cottages on the lake.
It was nice to revisit the familiar place that I knew as a child...

He had done a lot of renovating and remodeling as well,
but Lake Huron
was still as beautiful as it ever was...

I also had fun attempting to
tune his baby grand(!!!!!)...

I only fixed a few notes because I bent his tool!
The piano is extremly old and the pegs were firmly set,
thus they didn't want to be moved to tune :)

Also, my dear cousin had her baby.
I confess I miss holding babies,
since my siblings
are bigger now... bittersweet.
It was nice to hold my 2 week old cousin...

Well, we need to get going
to take my grandma to the doctor.
I just thought I'd share some pictures!
The next time I post I hope to be back home!
Have a great week!
