What wonderful linage ~ What a wonderful line of delightful family.

Your photography is so magnificent, and your simple but profound captions, heartwarming.

Wow neat! This is a really great site! I am wondering if anyone else has come across something
similar in the past? Keep up the great work!

Skeller said...

Wow, what a wonderful gathering!! And how lucky are they to have you to document it all?!? But Becky, don't think I didn't notice that you're missing j, o, q, and u-z. :-O
Now, if I were a more helpful commenter, I would chase down those letter words for you (but something tells me you probably already searched pretty tenaciously!!).

Happy Wednesday to you...

Matty said...

Your family looks wonderful. They are a gift for sure.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You obviously come from good pedigree. :)
Love all these photos....oh those kids and that corn!!!

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

so cool! I dont know how you keep up on all the different blog events you do. I should start a calendar to help remember and prepare! LOL!

I am so proud of Jacob... but he is a kid and I know that he will get in trouble in school and one day he will probably even get into a fight with another kid.... and then I will get that call from the principle! LOL

I think schools should offer resources for kids in need. I think they are great programs and help those who struggle in Math or Reading... etc. Some kids need an extra boost and some kids need one on one and others need to be taught in a different format. I learned quickly how my son learns so I can easily teach him things. Not sure about Ryan yet... he learns in a different format so I may have to have help with him. But so far so good so I am happy! Thanks for coming by!

Each of these photos is precious but I especially loved the very first one. Simply beautiful. What an incredible inheritance indeed! (Yes, I did just use the word "indeed" which sounds very pompous when I read over it but you know what I mean!:)
You have a lovely family!:)

Kay L. Davies said...

Wonderful words of wisdom. One would almost think this Wednesday's letter is W. That's W for "we" not "I" as your family shows us so well.
I love the way you've lovingly done all the work to illustrate the words for family.

You have written an awesome post, with the words and the photos creating such a sense of family. Desmond Tutu's quote is perfect, as is your closing line.
