Well - Emily and I made it through the first week of school - yahoo! I had a few pictures from the last couple of weeks that I thought it would be fun to share. You know me and pictures! So here we go. The first is a picture of the Benson's, who spent an evening with us - I am so glad they stopped in!

Then here are my hostas in bloom, and Emily standing there is the loveliest flower of all!

Then one fine day we had our Sunday dinner outside, so here we are at the picnic table, using a pop can for a tripod!

And then recently, on a lovely cool day (at last) while sitting outside, I was able to get a picture of the hummingbird at our feeder.

And I was going to quit there - but decided to add two more of bringing Emily up to Calvin. So here she is all packed and ready to go and then there she is with her roommate from last year, Lauren, from California.

Sorry, Diane, your "treasures" look like trash to me!
But I do like your hummingbird photo.

Hi Diane!! Thanks so much for leaving a comment today and nice to meet you via our blog! Love your blog name, too! Great story!

You scored there on your "rummage sale" finds! Way to go. I am like you and appreciate the story and time behind things that are handmade by others. The ladies I grew up with always were creating things like that. Such a joy!

Hey - have to tell you that my baby brother went to Calvin!!! Yup! He went to a private HS (Christian Reformed) here and then Dad and Mom sent him to Calvin. He had inspriations of becoming a Pastor, however he changed his mind. He loved it there and has fond memories, especially playing LaCross.

Take care and I will be back to visit again!
