June has been a good one so far. How in the world is it almost the end?
A few happenings going on in our family this month…
Two of my little brothers moved back (from NYC and Thailand), to Utah where four of our kids live.
I have LOVED seeing these pics come in of the girls with their little cousins they adore.
Love that Eli & Julie had a little going-away dinner for Claire, where some got to meet Murphy for the first time. Love little Etta’s face looking at that girl (left below).
Claire’s face on the right (above) shows a little portion of how sad she is to leave that baby niece of hers. Oh boy. So grateful for FaceTime!
Elle and Carson have been exploring the San Francisco area on their externship.
Sometimes with friends, sometimes just the two of them.
Those two know how to squeeze so many good things into life!
Meanwhile back in Utah, Dave and I have had some work meetings up there lately. There are some good perks that come along with those meetings:
Grace was working during our picnic, but we got to have a special night with her too:
Claire packed up her life up there and made the long drive home with her friend (who got squished out of the pic). She came home to have a few days to get ready for all her adventures coming up (study abroad and mission).
That scripture on the right up there above was one that I came across thinking about both those college girls of mine.
Isn’t it amazing that God will not leave us comfortless?
So grateful to feel that in my life. How I hope my children can feel it too.
Claire got home earlier than we did, and got right to work catching up with high school friends, and Dave and I happened to be on the same flight with his cousin (who is also my dear friend).
It’s a small world!
More on Claire’s journey to get out the door tomorrow!
