Hello sweet ladies,
Sunflowers and the American flag.........sooo COUNTRY!!!! Praying that our country would live in Truth.......it would be a sweet thing!
Hope you had a wonderful 4th......we did. Our day started by going to the turtle races. They start in the morning....so it isn't quite so hot. That makes it nice, because later in the day it was 102. It was kind of a lazy relaxed day with our family.
Taylor has wanted to ride her horse in the parade forever!!!!!! She was so so nervous.......not sure what her horse might do. We had the trailer hooked up to the truck......we were driving in and she said, "Daddy would you pray for me"? Music to my ears.....when your child comes again to the end of themselves and runs to Jesus! It was a very special memory for me......etched in my mind for a rainy day! She did great. It was 102 by this time, but she didn't care.......Juneau did wonderful! She is in the red.....with the big smile! She was so happy......she did it and Juneau was a good girl!
We had a picnic at the small lake in our town grilling hamburgers. Then it was time for the fireworks.........laying with my 10 grandchildren on a two big quilts we watched the sky light up. For our small town it is the best fireworks show around. People drive from everywhere to watch. This was Vitaliy's first 4th in America. Can you imagine a used to be orphan who is 13 year old getting to experience Americana in the real? He loved it. He liked all the free candy being thrown from the floats. We are thanking God for our adopted grandson.........I think I told you he told his Momma he wants to be President. She hasn't told him that he couldn't......we will let him dream big!
Oh I have to share one more thing. A sweet blogger friend, Barbara has been making an American Quilt for Vitaliy. To welcome him to our country! She will be using the fabric I designed in it. I can't wait to see what it is going to look like all sewn up.
If you would like to buy some fabric, I have a bolt still left. It is $8.50 a yd. plus shipping. Let me know by emailing me at prairie flower farm at g mail dot com. Say fabric in the subject line.
Well I am off designing the cover of the new pattern........hope your day is sweet.
Hugs from my farm,
