What a Summer!!!




Family always comes first and maybe soon I will be able to work on new projects in sewing and painting. As soon as Dave graduated, Ted went back to school for the summer session. Then Annie had her orientation at the University this last Monday. Every mom should have a daughter like her. Incredible person! And Ted is bringing home a friend for this weekend! A girlfriend!! I like her.

The top pic shows my daughter with Representative Manzullo. She played at a meeting he was a speaker at earlier in the year. Next she is shown at her last Phi Theta Kappa meeting which is the National Honors Society for 2 year colleges. She was president. The lower picture shows her not wanting her picture taken at summer event. She can get crabby when her picture is taken.

She also got a call from the University asking her if she was interested in applying for the honors program. cool!!!!!!

She is a great farm girl also. She can do almost anything here and is a wonderful equestrian and is nearly a botanist with all that she knows about the plants in our garden.

I think one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child is the desire to work hard and living here on the farm is a way of doing that. The 4 grown kids here can bale hay, fix fencing, ride and gentle horses, study hard and have fun with family and friends. Not bad.

Its been more than a busy summer, its been a lifetime and a great one at that!!!!

Hugs from a tired but happy mom,
Barb

Barb,
Congrats to your daughter and all her accomplishments! You've raised some great kids and you deserve a couple pats on the back for that. Enjoy your summer with your children!
