Celebrate This Week: Seven Pics for 7/7

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.

When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 

   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

In honor of 7/7, I'm sharing seven photos from the past week!
 I finished the ARC of Woodson's 
newest MG book on Friday.
You'll want to read this one, 
coming out in August.
 Jack loves playing with these
puzzles that his dad played with 
when he was a little boy.
 Teddy kicks off the 4th of July 
with some flag waving at his
great grandma's house in Utah.
 Teddy's all decked out for the
neighborhood parade.
 My son-in-law, Will, made this patriotic 
fruit pizza for the Fourth of July!
Jack visits his first splash pad.
A gorgeous day at the park!
 Grandpa and Jack love hanging out at the 
train park on Fridays. But Jack's favorite
attraction this week was the man mowing the 
grass with an industrial riding mower.
And the man trimming trees!

FYI:  7/7 has special significance for me. Forty-one years ago, I began my service as a missionary in Hong Kong on 7/7/77.
I've slept a few nights since then, but memories of my time 
there remain precious pages in my life story.


  1. Nice combination of now and then with all the pictures of today and explaining the significance of the date. That summer my husband and I were missionaries in New Mexico.

  2. Keep the kid pictures coming. I will never get tired of them. Their 4th of July photos are fabulous. The 7/7/77 is clearly a significant date in your life. (And thanks to the aligned numbers easy to remember date.)

  3. Love those smiling kids, jealous of your ARC of Harbor Me, and I didn't know you were a missionary in Hong Kong. How wonderful! Have a wonderful week!

  4. Looking forward to HARBOR ME and loving these fun summer pics... also all those 7s! xo
