first movie...EPIC

We took the girls to their first movie...I think they were more excited about the treats than the movie!

Memorial Day Weekend


School's out for the summer...(well it was when I took these pictures)

This was the last day of school for the girls in May...can't believe that it's going to be starting in less than two weeks and that Lilija is going into Kindergarten! CRAZY!

GGs 65th wedding anni

Can I just say WOW. 65 years of the same person! I hope and pray that Carl and I get to experience that some day too (only 56 years to go). Just amazing! GGs asked me to sing a song at their reception and my mom and I chose "Find us Faithful." Here are the words:

We're pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road
And those who've gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift through all we've left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find

So, I made it to the third verse and then Calah starts walking towards me just when I'm about to sing the line, "And our children sift through all we've left behind.." and cue the tears. Bah! Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Molin for being such an incredible example to our family, friends, and loved ones. We love you!
