And it continues...

 And the blog continues...The kids got mom flowers for Mother's day and they helped her plant them out front.
 I can still not get over how quickly the school year flies by.  This is Abbey on her last day as a 3rd grader and Natalie as a kindergartner
 We celebrated the end of school with a trip down to OK for a few days of just doing nothing.  Z was quite a sight getting ready to swim.

Emalie got used to being pampered by Lisa.
 Mom and Dad with their kids and grandkids to celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

 We also threw in a quick trip to Disneyworld in May.  It was a much needed time with Daddy!

 The coolest thing for Jeremey and I was that we got to watch the last launch of the space shuttle Atlantis.  The kids weren't as impressed as were we.  But maybe someday they can tell their kids that they got to see it happen!
 Natalie continues to sing her heart out at church on Children's Mass Sunday.  FYI  they are the first Sunday of each month in Wakita if you would like to hear her sing!

 The kids love it when Daddy's mows the yard because he lets them ride.  Here Emalie gets a turn.  And believe me EVERYONE gets to ride. I'm surprised they haven't started timing each other yet.

We had a pretty good rain this summer and part of our yard filled up with water.  This kept them busy for an entire DAY!!  It made for lots of laundry and clean up for me...But it was worth it!
 Daddy's annual harvest picture with the kids on the combine.

 For the girls' 6th bday Mimi gives them the gift of an ears piercing.  We tried Natalie last September, but it took until June to get it done.  SHE DIDN"T EVEN WINCE.  I was so proud and she was too.

 If I was a calf and Zachery was chasing me, I would run too!

 Keeping with the farm theme:  Zachery is giving the girls a ride on Jetta Dawn.  So lucky to have such a gentle horse.
Meet Midnight the calf.  His mama wasn't taking care of him and so he came to live with us for a while.  Emalie fell in love!  Midnight is back on the farm and she still asks about him!
 We had a GREAT family 4th of July at Grand Lake. LOVED it and really loved the shirts that my family will wear for me!  They are such troopers.  I got them made at 
 My very blessed family!
 This was Abbey's 1st official Rodeo!  She had such great time!  She is definitely a horse girls!

 This is one of the funniest things I have ever done in my life.  And by far the best group of women to do it with!  The I'll Pray For You tour traveled to CO for hiking rafting and fellowship!  THANKS GIRLS!!!!!!!

Abbey getting ready for her first Showdeo.  I was way more nervous than she was.  She is looking forward to more this season!!!!!!

So now you are caught up thru July!  And look you only have August and September and Most of October to see and you are up to date!  Hopefully later this week!
Until then,
Love and Prayers,
This Graves Family
