Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Summer Fun

I am going to start from Father's Day.  The kids and I gave B some of his favorite things (hot, spicy, salty).  
The kids made this book about dad, in which they each answered questions about B (i.e. how old is he?  what's his name?  what's his job? etc.).  I had them each draw a picture for B and then I scanned them and transferred them onto a tshirt.  His final gift was a "day off" from me and the kids.  I made him breakfast and left it for him by his bed so that he could enjoy breakfast in bed.  Then, the kids and I packed into the car and snuck out of the house.  Thankfully, B slept in that day.  We spent the day at my parents' house while B got to have the day all to himself.  He chose to....can you guess....go fishing!  We came back at bedtime, put the kids to bed, and then enjoyed a quiet dinner together.  I tweaked this idea from the Dating Divas.

B and I enjoyed a lovely date where we attended a Bach Choral concert at CSU.

 The kids and I had a picnic and played at the splash park.  Tiny A did not want to stay with the rest of the group, so I had to chase him around most of the time.  Cb's was at Girl Scout Day Camp, so she wasn't with us.
Speaking of Girls Scout Camp, Cb's had a great week.  She got to do so many activities, including fishing, canoeing, hiking, country dancing, lasso throwing, crafts, and more.
I grew some zucchini! 
Tonight, B is super-dad (well, every night/day, really) and is having a backyard campout with the three older ones.  They are SO excited!  See middle A shaking her hips to the music?:)  She loves to move!  Cb's is singing along with daddy.  Such a beautiful voice.:)  F is running in and out of the tent.  Full of energy!
Have you hugged a pug today?  I highly recommend it.  It's good for the soul.
