Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

Summer is a time for...picking zinnias in the garden,

 

SRF

eating watermelon on the front porch,

 

SRF

and spending evenings with family

 

SRF

at the lake.

Sweet conversation between Rosie and Pookie while brushing Mama's hair:

 

Rosie: "Pookie, you know how Mama gets gray hair?"

Pookie: "How?"

Rosie: " When we be bad..."

Rosie : " Mom, it's only gray at the top, and brown on the bottom."

Rosie: "Pookie...we haven't been bad enough for it to go all the way to the bottom..."

 

Oh, how I love my sweet children :)

The hot summer days are perfect for putting a puzzle together,

 

SRF

baking homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast,

 

SRF

picking juicy ripe peaches,

 

SRF

and peeling them for...

 

SRF

delicious peach jam!

 

SRF

And we've been spending a lot of time at the lake! My darling children have been helping Mama cross the muddy waters to explore island...

 

SRF

after island. Thomas actually found a nice arrowhead or possibly spearhead.

 

SRF

Then Daddy joined us after his conference in Savannah for some lake fun!

 

SRF

And he brought us (packed in dry ice all the way from Savannah) Leopold's ice cream! Notice the Tutti Frutti just for Mama :)

Our Fourth of July celebration would not be complete without Carolyn and Grace's traditional star cookies!

 

SRF

And the Green and Naas children worked together setting up tents, tables, and citronella candles for the picnic.

 

SRF

Aunt Dorinda and Grace enjoyed an Irish Cream Soda on the new back porch swing.

 

SRF

And Grammy and Marianne spent time visiting inside in the air conditioning.

 

SRF

While the men were grilling hot dogs,

 

SRF

everyone else spent time relaxing,

 

SRF

snacking on ice chips,

 

SRF

playing badminton,

 

SRF

petting the dogs,

 

SRF

and drinking ice cold strawberry soda!

 

SRF

After the picnic and fireworks show,

 

SRF

it was time for the sparklers and more fun! And we remember that we are free to do all of this because of the sacrifices of so many...
