Here are just a few of the lovely moments of my week.

    Hi Kathie, So nice to have your girl home again! i love that little church in Cherry Valley also -do they still have the gernaniums blooming in the window? Have a great week end. Carolyn


  11. Oh it’s all so beautiful but the goals shot with that red throat captured so well is amazing. Of course the most exciting thing is that your daughter will be back on Saturday!! Yippee. Our son Josh flies down on Saturday for a quick overnight trip. We’re all going to a Soccer game together Saturday night. I’m sure that will hit my fives next week :0)Have a wonderful weekend reunion!!


  12. I have always wanted to visit Prince Edward Island – it’s the Anne of Green Gables in me! What a terrific post and such beautiful pictures. I’m glad to meet you through Friday’s Fave Five – this is my first week. I enjoyed reading through your blog and I’ll be back to visit soon.
