In order to narrow it down, I did not post about stuff in earlier posts. I love summer time. For one, the weather is beautiful. We really had a nice summer this year. It goes by so quickly. It's fun to be able to sleep in and watch cartoons with my kiddos in the morning.
Here are some of our Summer '08 memories:
We went swimming at a lot of hotels. Here's Mitch when I asked for a pose...he decided he'd pose while jumping in! :)
One of my favorite things every summer is the 4th of July Parade! The kids love waiting for the candy!
We then went to our friend's Cindy and Greg's house for swimming and smores!
A big accomplisment for me...climbing a 100' Fire Tower. Considering I'm deathly afraid of heights! We spent a week at Many Point Family Scout Camp. Thanks to another one of God's blessings that came from the Richard's Family!
I included this picture of the kids "attempting" to wash my van. The reason is that it is taken at my parents house. A huge and very important memory is that God always provides. This memory was provided through my parents. They let us live with them for almost a year! No small task when you're talking about a family of 6!!! We will never be able to thank them enough for providing a roof over our heads when we were going through one of our darkest storms. It truly was a blessing. We love you very much mom and dad!
Celebrating Mackenzie's birthday and the girls success at their gymnastics competition. We celebrated with Grandma & Grandpa U and Grandpa Bob and newest Grandma Debra, and our newest friends Marybeth, Randy and their children.
This picture reminds me of God's promises to us. He is so faithful and has provided for us through even the darkest storms. We are so blessed!
Genesis 9:13 says "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth".
This is a reminder of God's beauty and blessings. Like this sunset is the beautiful ending of a day, this picture is the beautiful ending of a wonderful summer!
This scripture sums up my feelings:
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15 NLT
I am so thankful for my friends, my family, and my husband. But most of all I'm thankful for Jesus and His peace that washes over me.
