Way, way back at the end of June, my cousin Andy and his wife came to visit. Remember me telling you about the Douglas' coming to see us as well? I was pretty bummed about not going to Colorado this summer, but there was no way we could justifiably head off to Colorado, while owning two houses, moving, taking summer coursework, and getting ready for a new job and college this fall. So we stayed put.
And people came to us.
We are so lucky!
It was so good to have them here. We had a lovely afternoon and evening visiting before they headed south.
It was a gorgeous June day, the day the relatives came. (Little Cynthia Rylant reference there!)
We took a walk through the cows to see a tiny new calf born way too late in the season.
June was so crazy busy. I look at this picture and think "How did I not enjoy it more?"
Happy girl on Daddy's shoulder!
It was super tiny.

Oh.... those skies. That greenness. These people.
