July 1st!

Hooray for a new month and a fresh, new start!!!!!!! (Happy 41st anniversary to my parents today).  Summer is in full swing around here.  I thought I'd share several pictures of our summer "vacation" so far.  We still have a lot planned that we very much are looking forward to and I will make sure to share photos later on this summer. 

Lately it has been storming a lot. I think it has rained every single day for at least 10 days.  This makes for an antsy bunch of children!  We sure are thankful, though, that we are not having a drought season or wild fires like out West!

Tim went away for a while to some training.  He passed his test he needed for his certification.  I married a smart man, what can I say?  We are all so glad he is home again!

Take care over the holiday weekend, Everyone!  Be safe!

The younger littles went fishing with Dad while KT & I went shopping

Finally, in the last 5 minutes right
before it was time to go, they caught a fish!

Bella and Bee-Alissa

Since we have no diving board, Kylie likes to
stand on T's shoulders and dive off him.

Bee trying to figure out how to get across the stream to the frogs

KY trying to find a way to make a bridge to get across with Bee

The kids cooped up inside with the rain made them get creative with play.
They were forcing Bella (dog) and Reeses Pieces (cat) to become friends
by enforcing a "time in."  A lot of hissing and barking occurred. LOL 
This is a crawling tunnel that goes to a tent and obstacle course.


  1. It sounds as if you all are having a busy summer. We began fishing this summer. My first time, I was discouraged with catching no fish. My second time I caught five fish. We were able to go to an amusement/water park. My oldest son went to Christian camp also. We too have stayed fairly busy. Now, we have VBS coming up soon. I am so glad that you all are having a good summer also. May the Lord continue to bless your family.

  2. Looks like you're having fun! Your kids are adorable!!!
