The kids are back!  It is really good to have them home, although Bill and I really enjoyed our week all by ourselves.  Of course, we were rarely all by ourselves – high school football game, dinner with friends, pop-in visit by Amy and her family, and of course Sunday church!  But we did have our quiet moments, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole week.

Here are some pictures of recent past events:

Arie-Jean’s first Astros game

She really looks like she’s enjoying the game – but actually she was enjoying Papa’s camera.  She loves to smile for her Papa!

She was a hit in her pink Astros outfit!

My wonderful Daddy – pondering…..

God bless your day!


About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    As usual, precious pictures!  And the one of our daddy is so “Daddy”.  Just sitting there taking it all in & thinking!!  I love seeing pictures of him when you post.  My only visual connection to him.  Thank you so much.  Glad the kids are home but still can’t imagine having that baby in the frozen tundra in a tent.  Or did they tent camp?  Seems like that’s what I remember but I could be wrong.  And where’s Jeannie been?  Haven’t seen any comments from her in a while!!  Love you & looking forward to more posts & pictures!!!  Dodie

    I, too am a fan of the pink Astro uniform.  All that fresh mountain air must have induced a little growth spurt.  A.J. grew so much while they were gone!  (Are they allowed to do that- take her away for a week at a time and bring her back bigger and cuter than ever?) 
    Great bubble pictures!  Kunk is always a hit with the kids, whether he wants to be or not.  Sometimes it is a curse to be popular. ; )  And Daddy ponders more and more all the time.  I am inclined to try to make him talk, but make myself leave him to his private thoughts.
