SO, it's been a long while sine I last wrote...
Life has a way of keeing you busy. Which is a good thing, but sometimes it's nice to just slow way down and enjoy... ya know.
Lydia had her first Vacation Bible School Summer!! She really enjoyed it. All the songs and the friends. I think she wanted it to go on forever! And who could blame her. She really touched me. They gave us a CD at her 2nd Bible School of ALL the songs that they learned and she did a mini-program for us. She did all the motions and sang so pretty. They talked a lot about Jesus dying on the cross and she kept saying "This is sad, but God saved us!" and she was excited about it. It was really something to see a little 4 year old so sure of herself. She is all about Love and sharing that love with everyone she meets. I am so proud!
Besides that... John's Rock Band, Confined to Being, had their first show. It was small. But they had a great time and did the best of the 4 or 5 bands that played... and pulled in the BIGGEST crowd! It was fun seeing them play. They will be playing again in August and I intend on being there. I'm so proud of him!
And... Hmm... I know we've been up to more than that, but those have a been a couple highlights. :)
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as I am!

The weather has been odd the last few days. Kind of rainy, kind of nice and humid as well. It makes it hard to really enjoy the outdoors as much as I would like.
Tonight before bed, as Lydia was looking so longingly at the front yard -- see here -- I knew I had to let them play a little.
Rooster and I doodled with some sidewalk chalk, Layla made a lot of noise and Lydia diligantly weeded the flower bed of "helicopter trees" it was nice just smelling the flowers and ready-to-rain air. I live for moments like this.

got a new 'backdrop' today... a table cloth actually... and i am so tickled with it. I wish I had a grey one like this... and a nice bright teal blue... then I'd be happy! No, I'm happy now but I was quite tickled with these results!
Plus Layla is an awesome little model, that helps. I found Lydia's old hat and it "almost" fits Layla. It made a nice touch. It's only 2 photos, but I think they came out nice and I enjoyed it. She's such a fun girl. All my kids are pretty fun, I'm awfully lucky.

Yesterday he came to me, in the morning, and said "Mommy, Take Picture of Me!" He was so excited. So, in his shorts and bedhead we rushed to the photo room and took a few shots. It was fun since usually he won't let me. They came out nice, but I was faced with how big he has gotten, and as usual that hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm just so glad I am at home and not missing all these little blessings.
