Does anyone else find it funny that I’m still calling these “Week in Review”?
The past two months have been a wonderful level of slow and uncommitted, interrupted by brief pockets of hold-onto-your-hats busy. There have been a lot of pool days and no schedule and figuring out meals as they happen. It’s the disconnect my soul needed.
June and July, in pictures and captions….
It was the gift of this Bible study this summer. So thankful for the She Reads Truth community.
It was these two baking up something in kitchen.
It was a loooong day of clothes shopping and some very worn out girls.
It was a pair of adorable, naughty bunnies taking refuge in the bathroom.
It was a little (or a lot) too much time on screens.
It was these beauties and endless rain and flowers that are still alive on August 7th.
It was time with girls and God-glory shining everywhere.
It was a lot of this view.
It was Matt on the go-kart that wouldn’t go and the “family fun night” that was exactly what I needed that week.
It was celebrating the life and legacy of fifty years of marriage.
It was the installation of my new favorite outdoor space.
It was this girl turning 12.
It was the #BurritoLife #FundraiserLife #SendGraceToHaitiLife.
It was a power outage and making the best of things.
It was strolling the pet store and these puppies living the life.
It was lunch with #2 at my favorite coffee shop.
It was coping with the discovery of two dead mice in the storage closet. (Sidenote: I didn’t actually drink the whole bottle of wine….)
It was Camp Enosh for these two.
It was dinner at our favorite local burger joint.
It was burning through this book and being left really mad at the author. I can’t take these novels with the bad endings. 😐
It was an evening in the ER with this guy. We never really defined what happened, but all signs point to heat stroke.
It was celebrating 16 years of marriage.
It was my foodie-photographer-in-training.
And it was never getting enough of this.
And never stopping giving thanks and listing the gifts…
