Summer brings on so many activities. I am not busy but mearly enjoying time to garden, read, walk, deep clean ( yes enjoy it) and catch up on things long left undone. Here is a photo catch up!
Flowers from around the yard.
As a family we are adjusting to being parents of three adult children. I do love this stage!
Some time I will write a post about the leaving of the nest. It is an amazing experience that thankfully has been unique with each child. ( that's to keep us parents on our toes! Or perhaps our knees!)
Naomi ( my 18 yo) is in the process of jumping through all the hoops to get fully registered for our local college. So may steps! She is pursuing Interior Design. I know she will be awesome!
My 21 year old son is working full time and saving to move to Ohio where is gal friend of almost 2 years lives. We are so blessed! She and her family are awesome.
Our oldest son and his dear wife are expecting their first child very very soon! We had a lovely visit with them on Fathers Day. ( somehow we did not take any photos) So proud of them!
I am crafting gifts for Christmas. Keeping the gifts small and as free as I can this year. Using all my scraps and found items. The goal is to have all homemade stuff done by end of August. I have challenged myself to craft each day till I leave for my sisters mid August. So far so good!
I am struggling to keep up with exercise. It seems that my cerebral palsy has reared its ugly head. I am experiencing lack of coordination and use of one leg at times. Frustrating. So I push through it.I hope I do not have to use a cane. ( yep I am prideful...honest)
I have been quite lazy about preparing for Emily's school next year. Perhaps it is just because she will be the only one. Just not stressed about it. Check back in a month and I bet I will be! I have a stack of books to go to the used book store. All I need to jump start my "teacher" mode it step into that store! Hoping my sell back pile will pay for what I need.
Still reading through the bible. I so enjoy doing this!
Also reading The Prodigal God ( excellent!) and A Life God Rewards Devotional
