Simmons Family

It was a beautiful night for a photo session in the family garden. I'm so thankful for the gorgeous August weather we've been having. Less sweating equals more enjoyable picture taking!


Katelyn: Senior

The last time I saw her she was a tiny tot. Her mom was one of my field hockey coaches at Messiah College. Time changes things for sure. Katelyn has grown up into a beautiful young woman. She's a dancer and has been dancing for thirteen of the seventeen years of her life. She's also an avid reader and loves adventures, new opportunities, and the ability to bless those around her. Meet Katelyn...



Storing Up For The Winter

Today was corn day at our house. My dad found a new contraption that silks the corn mechanically using water and big brushes. It's a dream machine, really. Isaac shoved the ears in and Malakai pulled them out and Hadassah sat and watched with her boots on ;) Despite the rain we had a successful day and I'm thankful for my garage where most of the mess was made. Praise Jesus for corn in the freezer! Checking that off my list feels so good.


Laughing Till We Cry

We have done this for many years. Family day. A day set aside where we spend time together doing things that will make memories in our minds forever. This weekend we did a little of this....

My parents surprised us and took us to Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. Go carts, corn maze, petting zoo, tractor pull, and a ton of other fun farm related activities. We had a blast! And at the end of the day, we were tired but happy. I'm so thankful for these experiences made together.
