Life Lately

We have enjoyed heading here to pick blackberries lately. Ben's parents own a farm in Abbeville.

Recently, we had a Lemonade Stand in front of Bellamia. The boys worked so hard in spite of the heat to raise money for a church in Haiti.

We actually flagged cars down on Westgate. A humbling experience, if you've never tried it before. :)

There were a few "sample" cups for the workers. :)

Luke and Amanda were flagging here. She was a cheerleader in high school, a helpful skill for times such as this.

Benjamin and Joseph also had a lemonade stand in front of our house for Haiti.

They worked for a couple of hours. Diligently and selflessly.

With treats like frozen yogurt to help the day feel cooler.

This is a picture of brotherly love. They may have been wrestling immediately after the shot, but here is a glimpse of their hearts.

Luke and my dad are playing golf. Dad is an awesome golfer and is giving Luke lessons. Thanks Dad! We love you.

How wise that you are teaching the boys to look outside themselves to see others in need. Kids must learn to be giving...and your sweet boys are learning valuable lessons!

Great pics, too! And, the blog looks so nice. Good for you Shanni!
