Herding Cats Might Be Easier ~ Group Picture

"We're ready for you to take our picture!" O.K., but where are the rest of you?
"We're coming..."
Oops, gained another grandchild, lost one. Hey, where is she going? I need a few more kids here...herding cats might be easier than this.
"We're ready!"
A little help here please?
Oldest granddaughter helps her youngest cousin.
Almost ready, still missing some grand-kids though.
Hang on...
All right!
However, the picture we took here, facing the other way, is my favorite. This is what I've been doing this past month instead of blogging, spinning wool, weaving, weeding or having tea parties. Playing with my grandchildren. April is almost over, and what a glorious month it has been. God is good, Praise Him!  ~"Behold,children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3

Hehehehe - - - "herding cats might be easier!"

Been there

Done that

with our four kids when they were little.

You hit the nail on the HEAD with this title.

I agree, herding cats would be easier!!! But the pictures you got are so sweet!!! Time goes so fast, and soon they will all be grown, so enjoy them while you have them.

Keetha, fun & exasperating !

Cora, you are so right. Our youngest grandchild is almost 4 years old, the oldest will be a teenager soon, where oh where did the time go?

KathyB. said...

Lady Jane, thank-you. I do know we are blessed, which is why I chose time with and for them over one of my favorite pastimes ~blogging.

2 of my grandchildren have become very excited about blogging though, joy, more time with them and blogging!

Spending time with your precious grandchildren is more important than anything else, and it's wonderful that you make the time for them.

Wow, they're all close in age. I bet they have the best time ever spending time together with their grandparents on your beautiful 'spot on cedar pond'....

Beautiful children and picture!!

Daisy said...

Ha! Wonderful photos, all, Kathy, but I love the last one. Sounds like it was a fun-filled and busy month. :)

Vickie said...

Aw, Kathy - sweet, sweet pictures of even sweeter grandchildren! You're right - herding cats would have been easier! Glad you've been enjoying your time with them. There's nothing more important!

Kids do tend to take their time.......dancing to their own drummer. How wonderful to see them as such and we have such hopes for them as most grandparent (and parents) do. You have a lovely "group" finally assembled.

(Rounding up cats....what a hoot of an analogy! LOL)

Toni said...

Couldn't agree more :)

It might be easier, lol! I find it hard to even get my two in the picture and looking at me! I'm amazed you got them all together. What wonderful blessings you have!
