First time climbing stairs (I'm getting a gate TODAY)
First taste of dog food....sorry Murray?!

We Are Alive!!

Summer Break is here!! We kicked things off with a trip to the lake and an afternoon at the movies. We saw "Prince Caspian" (not as good as "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"), but we had a great time nonetheless. We have been in a flurry of activity ever since then. We have made a few trips to the pool, the library, and hope to hit Venture River sometime this week!! Everyday the kids wake up with an expectation of how I am going to entertain them that day. Imagine their surprise on days like yesterday when they got to clean their rooms, give the dog a bath, sweep the porch, and help me put away laundry?!?

I love the simplicity of summer. Staying up late (this is a killer for daddy who still has to go to work), sleeping in, making big breakfasts, playing outside, riding bikes, and of course their favorite....swimming! No worries of homework, school uniforms, or what they want in their lunchboxes for the next day!!

Now that we have settled into this "season" I hope to find plenty of time to blog and read. I am doing a "Your Girl-Raising a Godly Daughter in an Un-Godly World" study at church and also participating in a "Shepherding a Child's Heart" class. We are looking forward to our beach trip in a few weeks and Miss Sydney's birthday. Carson is off to visit our "far away" family soon and Hudson starts golf lessons. Harper is taking her first steps and babbles constantly!.....Did I mention how much I LOVE SUMMER BREAK!!!!
