Our Summer So Far...

My break from blogging has been going on for a little over a month now, so I thought it was about time for a little update. Here's what we've been up to:

Going to Parris Island, SC to see this:

(Rich's brother graduate from Marine Boot Camp.)


Plus do some of this while we were there:


(Have fun)


And see this:

(Shrimp boats)

(Spanish Moss on trees and swamps! We don't see this in MI!)


Then there was the graduation party:

(Yeah-this is the only picture I got of the party. It was yummy though! LOL!)


We've been to the drive in:

(Blake loved the preview to Ice Age!)


We've been to the theater:

(Yep-the theater is a barn!)


I've been working a lot on this:

(It looks small, but it's a lot of work!)


Morgan's been loving this:

(Her new balance bike that came all the way from Germany!)


Blake has been loving this:

(Daddy's lawnmower, but Blake's 'tractor'!)


And just enjoying the warmer (yet a little on the cool side) weather.

That's just a small glimpse of our summer so far. It doesn't include:

  • The eventful couple days we had baling hay.
  • The late Spring cleaning that I've been trying to do.
  • The behavior problems that have came about in the kids.
  • The lawnmower tire dilemma. (The grass was looking like it could be baled with the 2nd cutting!)
  • My parents being home (though they've been too busy to add to my busyness).

And the list goes on. We have a lot more planned for the summer, so my blogging break will continue.... I hope everyone is having an equally fun and eventful summer! :-)

WOW, what a great summer it looks like you are having. Good for you for taking a break for family! They are always the most important. I have a garden much smaller than that, and they are a lot of work! It will be worth it though:)

Isn't that the most amazing thing to watch? We went to Paris Island about 9 years ago to watch Matthew's Cousin.
