Extra Seasons of Wilmore

Every place has their general four seasons.  Wilmore and the surrounding area has a few extra each year.  Our seasons are Summer, Hello, Fall, Winter, Spring and Good-bye.

Our family really enjoys the Hello season.  This is a time to get to know the new neighbors, church goers, Asbury Seminary and Asbury University folks, invite them in and make new friends.  We like to show people the area and let them in on all the things we have already learned.  We enjoy cook outs, dinners, play dates, drop in visits and just hanging out.

The Good-bye season doesn't seem to get any easier as the time passes.  We know it is coming with each family we get to know and let into our hearts.  Shawn, Evelyn and I could rattle off a slew of families we have loved and allowed to leave Wilmore.  This year among all of those that are leaving is the Hart Family.  We were blessed to get to know them over the past few years.

The great thing about Christian community is that we are all connected by a great big God who loves us and teaches us how to love others.

Pool Party!!

Pool Party!!!!

We are having a wonderful visit with my sister Denise.  Yesterday we got in the pool and had non-alcoholic margaritas.  Nothing is cuter than a 2 year old hollering MARGARITA!  Here are some pictures.

Mother's Day redo

The actual day of Mother's Day was certainly something else.  It showed me how everyday can be without the very important Father in my life.  Both God and my husband.

Shawn was gracious enough to have a Mother's Day redo.  We drove up to Cincinnati after church on Sunday, May 15th.  I was treated to a hot stone message while Shawn drove the girls around.  After that we stopped at a bakery for some delicious goods at Busken's Bakery.  We then headed off to see the International Butterfly Show at Krohn's Conservatory.  The butterflies were beautiful.  Evelyn loved to have them land on her and pick them up.  Joey loved to watch until we put one on her.  She freaked out and wanted to leave after that moment.  We finished up the evening by going out to dinner at a Teppanyaki Grill Restaurant.  I love watching my food be on fire as did the rest of my family.  It was a wonderful day.  I am so blessed to be a mom!
Here are some pictures from our Mother's Day adventure.

Mom and the girls - Evie 7 and Joey 2

Evie loved catching the butterflies.  This is very funny because she usually runs from anything that flies.

There were also beautiful flowers.
