Our Summer So Far…

As you may have noticed I haven’t been on top of the whole blogging thing. But It’s summertime. And that’s the only excuse I’ve got.

However its been awhile since I’ve written a more personal post for those of you who find that stuff interesting. Which is mostly just my two far-away friends. And a personal post is no fun unless there is an alarming amount of pictures. So here we go!

First and foremost the weather so far has been glorious. After four consecutive boiling hot summers from hades, we finally are experinecing a cooler, more enjoyable season. Which I have loved so much! Our land is still green and not burnt to a crisp and there is no smoke and smog filling our skies. Lovely.

So we decided to go to space…

Not really. Just the planetarium, which was very fun.

Our July was made up of two weeks of summer school for the kids then one week of Church Daycamps (put on by my husband, because thats his job). After that my husband took two weeks of holidays off (which he more than earned after pulling off an excellent Kids Daycamp)! So we went camping!

Here we are looking beautiful…

But what has made our summer extra fun is all the time my kids get to spend (and torture) our new cat! We adopted her in the Spring. Her name is orphan Annie and she was a neighborhood stray that we had the joy of rescuing. Our kids are in love with her and regularly impose themselves on her personal space.

And although her 6am ritual wake-up call of walking over our faces and meowing loudly, invokes genuine rage that must be suppressed every single morning…we do still love her.

And that is it!

From here on out, our summer looks pretty chill. Which makes me happy. So I hope you enjoyed this riveting picture update. And I hope your summer is filled with all kinds of family memories made!
