Summertime is in full swing at our house, here is what we are up to:
Most evenings, after the girls are asleep and the heat of the day has passed, I am outside with a good pair of gardening gloves and my iPod. My tomatoes are doing great but I have been fighting off the slugs on my okra, peppers, and melons.
This time of year there are some super fun yard sales.
I found a beautiful bolt of wavily fabric that will soon be curtains for our bedroom (thanks to a mom that can sew) There were at least 20 yards on the bolt that I got for a total of $5..oh yea
We just got a fabulous little hand-me-down play house. The girls love it! When it’s too hot to play outside I highly recommend Toca Boca games!
Me and the hubs
We just had a great little getaway to Atlanta, went to a concert on the lawn at North Point, and got to have some good conversation thanks to Mark Driscolls book, Real Marriage.
(more on that later)
Other random news:
One of our favorite girls is moving. She lived with us for a few months last semester and we just fell in love with her. Our “adopted daughter” as we call her, is moving to Atlanta to get her doctorate in psychology. We are so proud but super bummed she will live so far away.
We eat a lot of boiled peanuts and watermelon (preferably together)
We are getting new neighbors that have a little girl!!
I am currently reading, “7” by Jen Hatmaker and I LOVE it.
What is your family up to this summer?
