Sorry I have been AWOL most of the summer. We've been sick (understatement of the century!), and also very busy getting geared up for Aly to start Home School in two weeks. Ah...the planning!!!
Anyway...David reminded me the other night that the opening picture on my blog was still Obama from my last post and that I needed to blog again if for no other reason that to get that picture off of my homepage!! That was enough motivation for me!! :-)
So, scroll down and see a little bit of what we did this summer...
We are learning to play the piano...THANKS AUNT BABS AND UNCLE HENRY FOR THE KEYBOARD!!!!!! They play on this thing ALL DAY!!!
We let Bailey in on the fun too...she loves loves loves to swim in the pool!! Sometimes she just sits on the top step and cools off.
The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Sometimes you need a drink of water...and POOF...there appears a garden hose just in the nick of time!
"Indeed the water I give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14
Daddy Man waiting for the show...look at tha ominous looking sky! Yes, it did POUR down rain and we had to make a run for the car, but just in time it stopped and the show was worth the wait!!
My beautiful Aly!
I had to include a picture of "Scuba Boy" cleaning the pool~
It is not often in Florida that we get rain without the thunder and lightening. But when we do, the girls hit the driveway and have more fun than you can shake a stick at. They LOVE to play in the rain!!!
Absolutely SOAKED and loving every minute of it!!! Thank you God for the rain!!
"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom!" Psalm 145:3
I WILL climb THIS tree!!
Aly has a sketch book. She takes it outside most days and draws something in it. She dates it and writes what it is...her drawing is getting better with every entry! This day she was drawing a bamboo plant on the carport.
Sometimes "Scuba Boy" makes me get out of the pool when I don't obey. I really don't like it when he does that!!!! But I know that he LOVES LOVES LOVES me!!
Aly reading to us. She is reading so very well...we are so proud of her!!!
"The Bamboo Girls" photo shoot
You know, they used to take my picture all the time. I had to beg Mom to take this one. Just call me "Bailey...the Red Headed Step Dog!!!!" ARGH
The girls are now in LOVE with their cousin Jill. Jill and her Mom & Dad came to see us for a few days earlier in the summer and the girls STILL ask when Jill is coming back for another visit!!
Aly attended THREE Vacation Bible Schools this summer. She had such fun!!! This was during the first one. Lili and I went to see her program on the last day.
Well, there you go...I think that is enough photos for one day. I hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of our summer fun. I think we spent most of it in the pool, but as hot as it has been...that was fine with us!!!
It is almost time for homeschool to start!!! WHOOO HOOOO...we can't wait!!!!!
In HIS Mighty Grip...
