We had enough of that last week. I have a bit of a hard time balancing it all--posts I want to write/share but the need to, well, you know! :)
We had a great weekend. The weather here (high 80s) made it feel like summer AND we finished up our school and testing...so it really was our first summer weekend! Tim pulled out the tagalong that we had when the boys were little. Lindsey. was. thrilled.
Did you notice her smile? She kept it the whole time they rode. Our neighborhood is full of bike paths...where the two (Tim and Lindsey) spent any spare moment they had.
We also planted our little vegetable garden. Although very small...we enjoy the tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.
Lindsey kept her helmet on all weekend, just in case one of those spare moments arose.
Lucille in all her girliness...not sure where she gets it or what to do with it!
I hope you all had a nice weekend. I have been reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I would encourage ALL of you to get a copy for your summer reading. And from that book I leave you with a quote and my motto for the summer (and after):
"Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I've ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing......Through all the haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away."
"We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing"
Slow down...live in the moment He has given...thank Him for and in all things.
LET SUMMER BEGIN!
