My Offspring

~Autumn Fires~
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,

Fires in the fall!~Robert Louis Stevenson~

These are my babies, how time flies!

...Good Morning Terri, my gosh - they're beautiful! How blessed you are! :o)


Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

Okay...sometimes I'm slow...

Junebug = Terri


And, gosh, I've never been anyone's first name in a blogroll before; and I'm sure they aren't in "order" or anything, but it was such a nice gesture to see (especially since I have yet to create any kind of a blogroll of my own :/).

Loved seeing these pictures and reading Stevenson's poem.

AND THANK YOU for chiming in on my Poetic License meme...I was worried for a bit that "if I built it, they might NOT come" :).

tj: Let's just fast forward about 13 years from the date of these pictures. I may have captured them for a moment on film and for sure in my heart, but I couldn't capture their growing up. They have done this as now they are 20, 21-1/2, and 24 years old. We will remember those happy days.

Robin: Yes, I am Terri and I love poetry. I haven't written much because I always think it sounds so sappy. I do have one major poem that I will be posting soon about Thanksgiving. I actually like it.

Robin: I can't say you will stay at the top of my list. I have been thinking about putting them in alpabetical order! :D

What great photos! Thanks for sharing. You'll have to do a post with them at the ages they are now so we can see the changes.

I have my blogroll in alphabetical order. That way no one is bent out of shape about their placement. Of course I haven't updated it in about forever.

Should go do that...

Blue Momma: I will post soon about the kids with pics. I changed my favorites to alpabetical yesterday. I wanted to add someone and I knew it would bump Robin out of first place so I put them alphabetically first, then added.
