sunflowers

Lily brought home sunflower seeds, from a school project, back in early May. She really wanted to plant them.  Last summer we learned where NOT to plant sunflowers. They were in our backyard and only grew a few feet and then died.  Our sunniest spot is in our front flower bed, so we tried it. This year they did great! We had so much fun watching then grow, then bud and then open.

Back in early July when the first sunflower opened.

The last sunflower just opened up this morning.

friends + donuts

These sweet friends are home, for one month, from Kenya, Africa.  The Meshaw's have been gone for 2 years already. Man, have we missed them!  We are soaking up as much time as possible while they are here.  We've already enjoyed a dinner date at Island's (this was a regular occurrence prior to their move), evening at WB, dinner at our house with other friends from Africa, and then yesterday's Britt's donuts plus Carolina Beach.  We have a few more things planned too!
We love you guys, appreciate your friendship and pray for God's continued blessing on your work in Africa!


Wren enjoyed her first taste of Britt's donuts too!
