Summer fun

I can not believe that June is almost over!  Summer has been zipping by and we’ve been busy having fun!

Memorial Day Weekend

We kicked off the summer with a trip to the lake.  While there we fished, swam, and played with worms.  {smile}  Well, the little ones played with worms while others fished.  I’m sure the fish swimming below the pier enjoyed the worms being thrown into the water.

Swim team

This summer, Bryce, our oldest son, competed in summer swim meets.  Grant was also going to compete but ended up with a broken collar bone after a Memorial Day weekend bicycle accident.  He was, however, at every swim meet to support and cheer on his older brother through all of the competitions.  I’m very proud of my boys!

Birthday sleepover

Emma turned nine and had her first ever sleep over with a few friends.  We took the girls to Cracker Barrel for supper, swam in the light of tiki torches, made ice cream sundaes, hosted tea parties, and played & crafted.  I think we all even slept…a little bit…

Gone fishin’

We headed down to a local park to do a little fishing.  We didn’t get any fish because we got there a tad too late and it was too hot.  Or we may not have gotten any fish because we skeedaddled out of there after we saw the alligator foot print in the mud!

Splashing in the water fountains

The city’s water fountains provided cool relief on a hot day.  During our last visit there, Emma and David ended up being interviewed by the local news station.

Add to the above activities:  daily swimming in our backyard pool, working in the garden, wrangling chickens & a puppy, learning about Jesus at Vacation Bible School, and having fun with friends.

I think I know why summer is flying by so quickly…because we’re having so much fun!
