These are Lane and Sarah's oldest children, James and Ila.
Ila kept finding new ways to enjoy the swings...
Then James had to imitate his big sister, of course!
Mother, James and Sarah went for a ride on the "Double" swing...
...and soon our double swing became a quadruple swing!
Mom and Sarah were going on a garden-tour when I snapped this picture of them by our very tall sunflowers!
Later, Mother had the camera and caught me jumping with the little ones. :) I had a lot of fun with the children--swinging; bouncing; eating apples and blowing bubbles! They all stayed and visited for a couple hours before Sarah had to leave, as she was teaching a ladies' Bible study this afternoon. It was so refreshing to have sweet fellowship with friends, and it was so neat to listen to a 5 year old girl who was able to tell me all about their garden and how they put up their produce--as though she were a fully grown lady!
This afternoon, Jacob shredded some of our cabbage for me so that I could make 5 more quarts of sauerkraut. We did up our one and only purple cabbage, so I had to get a picture!
Then, as we were waiting for our home-made pizza to bake before supper, Mother and I decided to give the boys a haircut... As it was lovely outside, we snipped out of doors. Isn't Summer wonderful? :)
