Entering a New Season!!!

We are more than thrilled that school is out and summer kicking off! The veggie garden is now providing rewards for our labor!! The flowers are now in bloom and the bees and butterflies are in full action!! It has been a draining few months. Losing two grandparents and one pet over the last few months has been an emotional roller coaster. I'm relieved to be entering a new season. We could all use the warm weather and change of pace, if for nothing else, just to get a breather from trials of life. This summer will bring a trip to NY to visit family. NY summers are awesome. The weather is quite a bit milder compared to our summers here. The kids will get some quality time with the grandparents and their great-aunt. I have a feeling they won't want to head home when the trip is over! We began our week with vacation bible school at church today. I'm actually having the chance to teach again!! That's been so fun. I forgot how much I enjoy teaching!! Wes is in my class!! I really need to get some pictures of that next week!! We had so much fun today. This afternoon Eric and the boys took a dip in the pool! I decided to get some shots because the weather was beautiful outside. I had to dodge some frequent splashing! I had so many shots that I decided I would post a slide show. It's been a while since I posted any pictures so I thought I'd make up for lost time. Honestly, my heart was lacking the blogging spirit. But, I'm starting to get back to my old self!! God is good!! He's provided some really awesome encouraging friends. And, I'm better for the trials that have come my way. Nothing quite builds faith like trials and sorrow. Good things can and do come from bad situations!!
Happy Summer everyone!!!

Summer is Here!!!
