It feels like it’s been forever since I have shared about our life currently style.
So today is all about catching up on things big and small.
Listening to //
The sounds of summer! Splashing water, kids laughing, crickets chirping, birds singing. I love it! I only wish I could still open all the windows up again, but it is WAY to hot for that now.
Grilled pizza, grilled veggies, grilled chicken, grilled burgers. You grill it, we’ll gladly eat it.
All the water, iced coffee and I have been buying Simply Lemonade from Sams Club lately too. Nothing says summer like lemonade
That summer would slow down. I know it feels like it just started but these two months of pure bliss go faster than any other two months of the year and I just want to soak up all the fun and memories that I can.
Looking Forward To //
Marking things off or our Summer Bucket List!
I’m honestly not really missing anything right now but my girls are missing VBS something fierce.
days hours until Marissa turns 8… TOMORROW! And the number of times we’ve gone to the pool. Without checking I am pretty sure we have gone about 12 times since May 29th.
For wisdom and direction in so many areas. We are still feeling super confused about Emily’s eye stuff and could use some direction. The biggest questions we have involve the cost. Therapy is EXPENSIVE and comes with no guarantees of working. The least thing we want to do is scrape together $4,000+, devote a year or more to working on this, and it not working. That would be AWFUL.
We also are back to looking for a new church again. We thought we had found one we liked, but it in the end it just never felt right for us. We are attempting to plug-in somewhere new now. I still can’t believe we have been floundering around trying to find a new church home for 15 months (since our old church closed).
Memory verses with the girls. I love when they learn scripture and we all pick it up from the constant recitation.
Not wearing my teacher hat all the live long day. It is nice to have the summer break so I can just be mom.
Mom-cation with Anna. We are thinking about a quick weekend get-a-way to Eureka Springs. A VERY quirky town in AR (where Russell and I got married) I actually haven’t been back since so going with Anna will be kind of fun/ funny.
I am also neck-deep in lesson planning too. Home school for two girls AND lesson planning for 20 weeks of Kindergarten co-op. If we do make this mom-cation happen I am pretty sure our books and home school planners will go too. We have A LOT of work to do.
Bathing suits, sundresses and shorts. It suddenly got HOT here in Missouri and the pool is the only way to stay cool. Which really has me wishing I had another bathing suit that I loved, preferably another Tankini or something similar to THIS.
Did anyone ever watch Super Market Sweep FOREVER ago? As a younger me I LOVED that show and honestly if you tell me where the reruns are I probably would still love it. Well, I found a show on Netflix call Guy’s Grocery Game. It was the perfect combo of the show I loved and a cooking competition. So fun.
What have you been up to currently?
