Bovee Bash 2014- Fellowship with friends near and far

We love hosting, especially big groups of big families!  We enjoyed having a lot of families from different fellowships to our farm for a campfire and fun!  So glad you could all join us for fellowship together.  















 Getting ready to divide into teams for capture the flag.


 The 2 captains with their  littlest team members.




Let the adult volleyball game begin!!!  What a bunch of kids at heart!



 It got a little serious, with finger pointing at times.  :)






 They didn't let the darkness stop them from their serious game.




 Smores anyone?


A night of fellowship, worship, and relaxing with friends.  That's what I call a lovely evening! Very thankful for this place, where we can do this!  Don't let this summer slip by without enjoying a campfire.  There is just something so peaceful and calming about sitting around a fire on a starry night.  Slow down and enjoy the moment!

Saphira turns 2 on Friday!!!!

My Saphira, or Saphi G. as some call her around here is turning 2.  We all sure love that girl!  I was hoping to take pictures a couple different times, but the rain we've had lately changed my plans.  Finally, we decided to catch some shots at some gardens while the rain was subsiding for a bit.  Alegra used her camera and I used mine.  Saphira certainly made it difficult for us to capture any good ones.  We did get a couple between the two of us, but what a little stinker and silly girl that Saphira is.

 She figured out she could splash with her foot and boy did she ever.  Covered her eyes and went to town kicking.  :)

Alegra's pictures





Our happy girl is turning 2!  She is almost completely potty trained.  Working mostly on staying dry at night, which she's been doing pretty good with.  She loves tractors, chicks, kittens, and singing.  She likes to sing the A,B,C song, The Shema, and Who Made the Twinkling Stars.  She's not a picky eater but loves to eat bananas (especially with a friend).  A friend and I caught our two little girls with a whole bunch of bananas and lots of empty peels.  Those girls sure enjoyed some yummy bananas without us knowing it.  :)

Praying that Saphira will grow into a beautiful and respectful young lady, who serves Yahweh will all her heart and those around her too.  Love you, our little gem!

David Rogers Days 2014

We enjoy going to parks, historical events, and spending time with our friends, so when David Rogers Days came around in LaGrange, this day met all of our most wonderful requirement for a lovely day.  It was at a park, a historical event, and some of our bestest of friends were there. We made some new friends too, which was a bonus!

 The children all had tasks to accomplish such as making a candle, chores of sweeping, basket making, gardening, washing laundry, and other fun things.


Benaiah wanted his dad to help him build the log cabin.  What a fun thing for the boys to do!


 Working on baskets.  The girls enjoyed this and brought them home to finish them up!

 For accomplishing his tasks, he won a wooden knife.  He will love this new toy!

The fun continued with dinner at our friend's house and fellowship with more friends.  Just can't get any better than that!  We are so blessed with wonderful friends, happy children, and hearts that enjoy simple pleasures.  A fun summer day!
