“Each one of you has something no one else has, or has ever had: your fingerprints, your brain, your heart. Be an individual. Be unique. Stand out. Make noise. Make someone notice. That's the power of individuals.” -Jon Bon Jovi
Each of our children are so unique in their own right. Pokey has just been a little more vocal about it lately. She is a beautiful person, we just don't always see eye to eye. I admire her determination and her ability to know exactly what she wants. I'm sure these qualities will serve her well throughout her life.
The Shuleys took off early this morning. It was a very quick visit, but glad they could stop in. After church we had a nice nap and then we took an afternoon drive. We heard about a new BBQ place off of C St, so we started our drive in that direction. It's called Dry Heat BBQ. We didn't go far and we found ourselves surrounded by farmland. It was a beautiful day and the rolling hills covered in green were beautiful. I attempted some photos, but I couldn't seem to get high enough to capture the essence of it. I did manage to cause a stampede of cows though. I snapped a photo and for some reason the flash opened and they took off running. Haldan and the kids got a kick out of it. I've never seen anything quite like it. The picture definitely didn't do it justice. We also managed to finally used the blackberries that the kids have been picking off and on for the last couple weeks. We decided on a blackberry crumble because we didn't have enough for jam and we thought it would be easier than pie. Both the kids helped and it turned out yummy. Little Man decided that he liked my apple crisp better because there are no seeds.
