Hot Days of Summer

How many things can you squeeze into one day?... Well, when it's the long days of summer and there's no agenda and no school, Alot!  Today we started out without much of a plan, but it developed quickly. We went to the YMCA to exercise, mailed off a care package to Nara Josette in China, picked berries at the  Barber Berry Farm  - while running into our good friends the Pope's in cool sun hats, sipped on fresh lemonade, swam with our friends the Roy's (Mosby jumped off the diving board for the first time and many more; all of the boys are swimming so great ;-) ) enjoyed a pizza / sushi party, finally we ended the day with ice cream, and bedtime prayers. Rob, was even able to join us late in the afternoon at the pool. (Thanks, Nana & Papa) Whew! What a fun day, aside from the slight heat stroke I had after the berry picking. 

The berry farm was fun, but hot in the heat of the day. We recommend going in the morning, sunscreen, and taking a drink with you. It takes a lot longer to pick a bucket of berries than you may imagine... but we'll be enjoying some sweet smoothies, ice cream, and hand-fulls of just plain berries, Yum, Yum!

We are so blessed to be able to just pick up and enjoy a fun-filled day, especially with some of our family and dear friends - the boys just Love, Maddie, Julianna, Mosby, Jeb, and Mary Mac. Thanks to you all, for helping us to have such an amazingly blessed day! This really feels like what summer should be all about - Fun!

Colossians 3:15-17 

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
