This is my entry for i ♥ faces category:
Contemplative (thoughtful observation, full or deep consideration)

This past August, my daughter and I had the opportunity to attend the funeral of my Grandmother. Although we will miss my Grandmother, we feel peace and joy in knowing that she is reunited with her husband, parents, a son and many other whom have gone on before.

My Grandma and Grandpa had 10 children. Their posterity numbers 347 family members, all who are blessed because of the examples set by my Grandparents.

In this picture, my daughter and I had been looking at headstones of our ancestors dating back hundreds of years. It was a great moment to teach her that she is part of a long line going back, part of a family now, and hopefully a link to future generations. Certainly something to contemplate.

Great photos...as always!! I love that you are taking your time to teach your children about their ancestry. I think it is vital for us to know about from whom and from where we came from. Again, lovely job!!
