Can You Tell School is Out?


Although we really school year round, our lighter summer schedule has arrived!!! The girls are excited, but this year, mom is just as excited.

We've enjoyed today even more since dad had part of the day off with us. This is how I found he and Emma after they did some yardwork.

Chloe doesn't like to read out in the sun, so she found something to hold her attention.

She's pretty good at this. Well...maybe I should drop the pretty and say INCREDIBLE! Her current record for consecutive jumps is 75. (she says that is a "conservative estimate")

This afternoon I'm baking the Sopapilla Cheesecake (off of the LPM Blog). This is the third time in 10 days that I've made this. My family loves it. This dessert is the entire reason I'm not stepping on the scales for at least two weeks. I'm making it to take to a family in our Sunday School class who just had their third baby...a sweet little girl. I sure hope they enjoy it as much as we do. :) I'm sure enjoying the smell that is coming from my kitchen right now!

I read this quote yesterday and just had to share it with you because so many of you are my friends.

"Real friends are those who, when you've made a fool of yourself, don't feel as though you've done a permanent job."

Now THAT sounds like a good friend doesn't it?! Chad is so blessed to have a friend like that. I should say the two of them are blessed to have each other.

I think the quote above fits them. What do you think?

YES! Those of you who are our Chattanooga buds. You know exactly who that is. Can you believe these two? One led worship and the other tech directed. Scary isn't it!!

I will say this..I'm thinking that the Mac was a whole lot of techie fun. Do they come in Pink? :)

Ok...I've told a lot of people about that dern recipe and have yet to make it....I'm dying to make it....I think I can smell it coming out of your kitchen!

Anyway....i'm so glad all is well with you and your precious family!

Big hugs~
