blue skies, clear air, cool temps & beautiful grandchildren…

Enter his gates with thanks; enter his courtyards with praise! Thank him! Bless his name! Because the Lord is good, his loyal love lasts forever; his faithfulness lasts generation after generation. – Psalm 100:4-5

There are a lot of stories to tell from Thanksgiving Day. But for this morning I’m simply going to post the short photo-shoot I did with the grandchildren when we walked to the park Wednesday afternoon.

To be honest it wasn’t a photo-shoot so far as they were concerned. It was playing in the park while grandaddy annoyed them with his camera.

Overall, it was a great success. Kindergarten and First Grade. Still heavy on the cuteness. Overflowing with love and energy. We have so much to be thankful for, and in so many ways.

Peace and blessings – DEREK
