It’s official….the summer has yet again, flown by! So today I thought I’d give you a quick recap of our summer in pictures!
Millie graduated with honors from the 2 year old class at her pre-school…mastering the potty, recognizing the letters in her name, and making silly faces instead of smiling. Jayna aced the 4 year old class and bittersweetly moved on to kindergarten. She is reading chapter books, writing letters and riding her bike!
Did I mention that we had a baby? Lincoln Christopher joined us in mid-May and is rounding into his fourth month already!
He is a completely chill baby who will smile at just about anyone!
The girls had a whole lot of Loo Loo time while I bonded with Lincoln.
Both girls got to experience a couple of Vacation Bible School sessions over the summer. Although I couldn’t volunteer during the sessions this year, I was able to help out with decorating for the “Workshop of Wonders” construction theme.
Our summer was filled with neighborhood gatherings, from a festive 4th of July parade and fireworks show, to a laid back Bluegrass and BBQ festival. There were also less formal occasions, as our closest neighbors shared meals, childcare and old-fashioned fun!
We were able to get up to Montreat again this year, to catch up with our best friends and reminisce a little about my summers there. And last weekend, we were SO excited to welcome our newest God-daughter, Penny! Lulabelle and Ro will be such great big sisters!
We had lots of visitors…including Great-Grandparents on both sides of the family! I’m so proud and thankful that my kids know their Greats so well!
I was hoping that we’d have a nice relaxing summer…you’d think that would be easy with a newborn, right? Not for this busy family! We were just as active as ever, but had a wonderful summer!
