Fun Stuff for Summer 2011
Truly, our lives are but a vapor. I'm reminded of that when I look back on pictures from summers past and see how quickly my children are growing up! And, as we make plans for the coming summer, it reminds me of James 4:14-15 NLT which says, "How do you know what will happen tomorrow? For your life is like the morning fog--it's here a little while, then it's gone. What you ought to say is, "'If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.'" So, may I be faithful in submitting all of our plans to the Lord--no matter how big or small they may be!
Therefore, Lord-willing we will:
Have a Lego Birthday Party for Carter!
Go to the annual Memorial Day parade
Find great deals at Garage Sales :)
Play with water balloons
Have a snowball fight (I saved snow in the freezer from this winter. :) (here's a picture from last year.)

Have a "cowgirl" birthday party for Carlee

Go to "The Shack"
(Here is a picture of "The Shack". My husband's grandparents own a piece of land up north and it's a fairly rustic "retreat" for the family to go to each summer. Don't worry. No one sleeps in "The Shack" anymore--it's just used for storage now.) :)
Do our annual nursery rhyme treasure hunt with friends and cousins that ends in getting ice cream. :) Here's a link for the map I made. Here are the nursery rhyme clues that I used.
