To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Pool Time

Thanks to our DFIVB (dear friends in Virginia Beach...aka...the Johnson's) we have pool privileges for the summer. Sunday afternoon we headed over and had lots of fun. (It was really weird without DFIVB and DFIS...(dear friends in Spain...aka...the Goodson's). Check out Sam...he is such a Daddy's boy...ever since he watched Rob baptize Sarah he has been running around doing dry runs but Sunday afternoon he got his chance..."I baptize you in the name of God!" and down she went...


Sam also showed off his muscles and his "Matrix" moves...
Sarah had a few moves of her own...talk about being frozen in time...she looks like she is knocking herself out on the diving board...she's fine though. Emily splashes around like a fish and hams it up for the camera...Abigail is still staying pretty close to the steps but I think by the end of
summer she will be over her fear...

It is still a little too cool for Claire to be in the water but she looked on as the rest of her crew played around...

Hey guys! Enjoy the pool! Sam is cracking us up!



We miss you all. Love, your DFIVB

So, Sam is now calling it Baptize...he was saying advertize.

Got me to thinking that the connection (beside the rhyming) is interesting, no?

Hey guys, looks like you all are having fun. Wish I could be there. I miss everyone so much. We will see you soon. Rob - I agree; the rhyming is very interesting. Smart boy; there's a preacher in that boy!!!!
