I ordered "Bambi" for Maddie and it came in today. She was SO excited. So after supper, all five of us sat down with her for family movie night. She's usually all about Mémère, but today she was Papa Dave's girl. (There sure was a lot of shootin’ going on in that movie!)

These kids are adorable and I love how they put God in the center of this special moment…

My sister (Cathy #1) is in from Washington State. She hasn’t been here since my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary in 2006. So after Kale and Kayla left on Sunday, Dave and I headed up to my parent’s for a family get-together… there were 46 Goulets in attendance!
I’m blessed to have my sweet, little family. I looked out on the porch this morning and this is what I saw:
I love this Country… thank you, thank you, thank you to all the men and women who have fought and are defending Her today! God Bless America!

It’s hard to believe it’s the 4th of July again. Kayla hadn’t been “home” since last 4th of July… we were so glad to get her back up here for a visit even though we didn’t have much time together. They got here Thursday evening and had to leave today after church.
We started off on Thursday night by visiting Ms. Charlsie. Tyler came home late from work, but showed up while we were at Charlsie’s. After our visit, we headed to eat pizza and then the boys took David to Lowe’s and surprised him with a belated birthday/Father’s day gift – a new grill.
Friday, Kale’s friend came up from Conway and he and Kale and Tyler all went golfing while Kayla-girl and I headed to Branson. We left late in the day and made a short day of it, but it was the first time in forever that we’ve been able to spend a day together. (I MISS YOU, KAYLA!)
We met the guys for supper at Cadron Creek Catfish House… Kayla’s one request for food while she was here.
Yesterday was SO hot… we spent part of the day indoors and later that afternoon we loaded up and went to our farm. Tyler had made plans for all of us to fish out of the pond with Dave’s sister and her daughter (and granddaughter). It got overcast just as we got there, so I think it was a bit cooler than it had been all day. It was a lot of (hot) fun, though.
Mémère brought along a spray bottle to 1) keep Maddie cool 2) keep Maddie occupied
My niece, Lindsey, and her daughter, Rylee – and David’s sister, Carla
Kayla might have got her line caught in the tree
For supper, Kale grilled some burgers (his special recipe) on the new grill and then we had s’mores in the backyard.
It was a nice, family day.
Today came all too soon and after church and lunch… we had to say goodbye. I still cry every single time I see them leave (or I leave them). But, it gives me something to look forward to when we get to see them again!!
Life is sweet.
