Here is a quick recap in pictures of some fun times we have shared with family and friends so far this summer.
**We celebrated Father’s Day! It is not technically in the summer, but it is close enough.:)
The kids love to celebrate with Pawpaw David because soda and a Honey Bun is a tradition they started a few years back on his birthday. Now it has carried over to Father’s Day!

**Our oldest two went to Camp Bethel at the end of June with their Daddy. They all had an amazing time learning more about the Lord.
**On the 4th of July, the kids and I studied about the American Revolution. We also enjoyed a cookout and some preaching at church. Last but not least, the kids and Jamie played football while I rocked on the porch with some of the best friends anyone could ask for. It was a fun day. These pictures are courtesy of Jaden! She actually did a pretty good job.
**We cooked Mamaw Neannie a meal and cake for her birthday on July 5th. We invited some good friends who we have known for many years. The homemade mashed potatoes, bread, and chocolate icing on the cake are three things that stand out in my mind!! The macaroni Dana made was delicious, too! All in all it was a wonderful meal with family and friends. Jaden was a great help in the kitchen.
**A couple more activities that we have enjoyed:
Who needs a pool when you have a tarp and sprinkler?
We have loved watching the baby chicks hatch.
Jacob has searched for all kinds of critters.
Isn’t life such a blessing? I posted these same words as a facebook status a few days ago, but it is so true. I can’t help but feel so blessed by the wonderful family, church, and friends the Lord has placed in our lives. No, our life is not perfect, but it is a blessing.
Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
Looks like a wonderful summer so far! 🙂
