Go Team USA

This wasn't the post I had in mind for tonight. However, when we got home from the mountains I discovered that my computer screen is on the blink. Once upon a time this would have been enough to put me over the edge, but thankfully this new perspective on life has me staying pretty calm. I will admit that there is a tiny storm of the crazies brewing as I think about all the pictures (Atlanta, beach, mountains) that are still on my hard drive. Praying it's just my screen and not the hard drive that's messed up.

So...since I wont be working on pictures tonight I guess I will sit with my family and watch the Olympics. I love the summer Olympics and can't wait to share in the excitement with the girls. Four years ago I neary had a heart attack every time Michael Phelps swam. I honestly should have been on the podium with him as much work as I put in. Well, maybe not but I was his biggest fan!

Ella was just watching beach volleyball and I heard her ask her daddy, "Doesn't sand get in their bikini?!". That girl cracks me up.

I hope to resume posting pictures and writing about our beach and mountain trips tomorrow. Until then, Go Team USA!

  3. Praying your pix are safe and praising God for taking you home safely. To God be the Glory in all circumstances. Erik's gonna have to lock Ella in her room pretty soon or buy a shotgun. Whichever he prefers! lol What a gorgeous young lady.

  4. Oh Kate,
    What a precious little girl, almost big girl, you have there! She is a little beauty.
    I am sure hoping that it is only your screen because I enjoy watching your little family grow and love on each other.
    Good luck with that!

  7. Tell Ella I was thinking the same thing!! : ) Sometimes it's a blessing when the computer isn't working. It's usually something you see as a blessing in hindsight but still a blessing. : )

  10. I am glad you had such a lovely time in the mountains. Hope your PC is ok. I hate the thought of losing photos so much that I back them onto cds and ask my Mum to look after them just in case my house burns down (I know, totally over the top!) xxx
