The following is a collage of photos that we took during Matthew's last visit! Let me just warn you...it's a good long post.
Singing together while Matthew played his guitar....
Matthew and I tried to match whenever the opportunity arose, so here we are on a Sunday morning, in blue with khaki.
Sitting and swinging...
Just for laughs!
He surprised me by starting to spin me!
He looks a little bit nervous about what I might do!
While Matthew was in Florida, he let his hair grow so that I could see it long, so when he got up to our place, he decided that it was time for a trim! We asked him if he would trim Noah's hair for us, so that we could watch him do it and try it ourselves.
After Noah's haircut, Matthew got in the chair and Dad had the blades!
Towards the end of Matthew's visit, Jordan, Caleb and the girls came in from Canada for a visit before heading to Florida for their yearly vacation!
Victoria and Grandma playing with the baby goats!
All the "kids" are having fun!
Look at how big Berea is getting!
Victoria helping Grandma make sugar cookies....
Gram holding Berea!
Remember those laser tag guns that Matthew had bought us for Christmas! We have been having a blast with them playing around our clay pit and through the woods! Here we kids are, all decked out in our camo.
Ethan, myself, Noah, and Savannah
After Caleb heard how much we were all getting into the game, he came prepared!
It's 3D camo! Good job Caleb!
Matthew and I, coming in from milking and feeding one morning...
we were admiring the sunrise!
Ethan, working our farm booth at our most popular market, Soda City!
Dad and Matthew playing a competitive game of ping pong!
Ethan and Matthew goofing off while Ethan is finishing up his schoolwork.
Oh my goodness!
The fellas...playing Twister!
All tied up in knots!
Playing the dulcimer together. Matthew taught me the basics to a few songs, so it was a lot of fun to try a duet together!
Practicing his guitar.
Ethan, enjoying the fire
I was losing, can you tell?!! He beat me in about 12 moves, but he was very gracious and offered to play me again, in which he beat me in about 3 moves. Uggh. But it was a lot of fun, even though I lost horribly!
Eating dinner with everyone!

Or...the goofballs in red!
There we go!
My fella, in the Canadian shirt and hat that Jordan and Caleb bought for him,...
...goofing around with shaving cream!
Caleb,...looking quite dashing in his...ahem...outfit.
We went over to a friend's house and watched them use their new workhorse. She was an amazing animal!
Attending a play...
