I'm just waiting now for some one to sign in and say, "Hey, I have that very same box of Bisquick!" You guys are just too funny.
Since I am a woman of a certain age, and since certain women of the certain age that I certainly am sometimes search for the certainty of the joy that can be found in certain archived photos and family happenings, I am quite certain that I would like to post certain photos from a certain time in 2008, namely the month of August, so that we can all ascertain the joys and memories of the Smith family that were certainly reported to have happened one year ago this month.
In other words, we're takin' a trip down memory lane! Get on the bus! Or the boat! Or the train! Or the donkey cart! Or whatever!
The "What We Were Doing One Year Ago This Month" Photographic Memory Lane Tour starts here:
Nathan and Sarah hanging out with our "wild neighbor." Don't you love the look on Sarah's face?
The Yard Sale Saga where Steve picked up a megaphone and yelled at the customers at the yard sale across the street that our stuff was better. Thankfully, the people across the street are (well, at least were) our friends. (Until the Yard Sale Saga happened, that is.)
The Princess and the Haircut
The Smith Women who deserve extra stars in their crowns for putting up with the Smith Men.
Could she be any cuter?
Getting the car ready for Nathan's first big road trip to Florida for his sophomore year. What you don't see in the background is his weeping, sniffling, mourning mother who is wondering when her little baby boy turned into such a grown up fella.
Those two are usually in the midst of some endlessly fascinating conversation.
Happy (Almost) End of Summer!
One final thing: If you think of it over the next few days, please pray for my dad, Ed Campbell. (He and my mom live in Wisconsin.) He's in the hospital and not bouncing back well from a couple surgeries he had this month. He's lost about twenty pounds in a month and is extremely weak and not able to eat. Dads are irreplaceable and it hurts my heart to know how much he's struggling right now. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers.
