A Happy Ending

Some of you might have been wondering why our blog is called Farm Kids In Crocs.

Right???


Well here it is

We all where the Croc brand shoe


It's as simple as that.




We were all wondering what to name our blog

and Ryan said

"Well what about Farm Kids In Crocs?"



You know like Farmgirl In Flipflops Photography


We all thought about it for a moment and then said:

"Okay!"


Do you like the header???

We have intended to do that for a header ever since we started the blog

But never did

I just finished it

and put it up there

That is done!!!

We have a header and everyone knows why our blog is called:


Farm Kids In Crocs


A happy ending!!!

God is the Ruler yet...

As the government tries desperately to break the Constitution in every possible way remember...

"
This is my Father's world.
I rest me in the thought
That though the wrong seems oft' so strong
God is the ruler yet."

A Lost History




Yesterday we went to our great grandmother's house for lunch. While we were there Daddy found the old 8mm film reels and projector. WOW. Years of family history in black and white with no sound are recorded on these reels.

Her small cramped writing has neatly labeled them for years and years as her family grew.




A Lost History of family memories and loved ones. Makes you think, doesn't it?

Jessica

P.S.

More photos and sentimentality tomorrow :)

The other night we went to have dinner with some wonderful friends we know.
We played soccer, capture the flag, dressed up, played a board game, and all in all had more fun then I've had in years.
It was a ton of fun!
Thank you L. family!

Insert Name Here


My brother just asked me, "When are you going to get married? Anytime soon?"

To which I replied, "Dearest, I am ONLY 16!".


He then proceeded to say..."well blank is only blank years old and he is pretty nice."






No, did not name anyone. He said it just as I wrote it. However I did quell any further speeches.

I am speechless

Rachel and Riley swing together a lot. He rides in the baby swing and she rides beside him. She also flips upside down and scares me to DEATH!!! Just kidding. Although, it is a mite nerve racking to watch her!!

The Vanishing World

In God we trust... How much longer will it remain?

Something to ponder... do we still trust in God for our nation?
