These Days

Lovin' to read.

Brown-eyed boy.

Our summer morning ritual-heading outside on the back deck to paint!

Campout in the basement--too hot outside!

Nothin' better than a day on the lake in Grandpa's boat...

and Daddy's waverunner.

Ready, set, go!

4th of July

Allie's 1st Boat Ride!!!



Not to miss out on any of the fun.

Grandpa and Allie

Pool days.

I don't know where July has gone, but sure enough, here we are in August already.  July was a whirlwind of family time.  We've made an extra effort this summer to spend as much time together as possible as a family.  Soon Ben will be going to school all day (much to my dismay) and our family life will be forever changed.  We're trying to fill these summer days doing what's most important to us.  Time on the boat, time with cousins and close friends.  Time at home to just BE.   Here are some favorite pics.

Speaking of family time, we are adjusting to a new work schedule for Jeremy.  He has boldly chosen to move to a new group at work.  It's not a glamorous move, but one that we have been hoping and praying for.  After 13 years of working Saturdays and late nights, he's now home for dinner every night and working no weekends.  Praise the Lord.  I'm so proud of my husband for making a choice based on what's best for our family.  He's a family-aholic rather than a work-aholic!!!  I'm so thankful for this man and we are SO excited to have so much more family time together.  And I'm so thankful the Lord has provided us this opportunity for however long He sees fit.
