daisy stew, reading and friends

Those cheeks......I wish they would stay like that.


Olivia making up some kind of daisy stew.  

Cleaning out Legos from the vacuum bag is not fun at all.  The kids thought this was hilarious and gross at the same time.  We found at least 20 pieces.

This guy loves bike rides. Odin has been carrying the bike trailer on his bike now.  I'm thinking he feels pretty cool doing that.  He loves his little brother something fierce. I keep waiting for him to take out a mailbox with the trailer.

These 3 rascals got themselves stuck in here.  So I spun them faster and faster and didn't get them out.

We found a great truck for Dave.  When he retires I think!

We love an hour of quiet time every day.  For some reason in the summer I get to read more books.  It's great!

One of the 4 books I'm reading right now.

A book about doing more with your faith.  Not just going to church, tithing and studying the Bible.

David Nowell shares powerful stories of faith in action, and encourages us to move with him from the sidelines to the front line, to get our hands dirty helping the hopeless, the disenfranchised, and the poor.

Loving as God loves is central to the gospel, whether that means taking in foster children, ministering to inmates at the local jail, or something else God has in mind just for you. Let this inspiring book help you find what's been missing in your faith.

Yard full of kids running around and having a blast. Love having friends over to play and hang out.

Our new bird watcher

He is still doing this hiding under the blanket thing.

Our Kale is growing like mad and we're loving the garden thing. 

Math lessons on the driveway.  I'm the mean mom making them school through the summer.

My parents took us out for breakfast and this is what he does.  The butter train.

We've  had some great weekends.  Filled with movie nights, a visit to my brothers a few hours away, get togethers with friends and just plain hanging out. My brother has a pool so the kids were stoked. They swam, ate and swam some more and played all day.  The kids would love a pool.  We had a great time just hanging out.  

Jeremiah's blood tests came back negative for allergies.  Which was a huge plus.  For some odd reason he was disappointed and wanted allergies.  Weird kid!  The other kids are not having any symptoms or signs of allergies so we won't bother getting them tested right now.  

I can't believe August is almost here already.  Where is summer going?  Have a wonderful Thursday!
