Early Summer Recap

We started summer with a bang. Vacation Bible started exactly two days after my last day at work. With my talented friend, Jill's, help, the painted set was finished and we got the stage ready in time for VBS. 

Both girls enjoyed their classes each night. Libby got to hold the Bible during assmebly one evening. Cool!

And Georgia Kate LOVED the music each night. She danced. A lot!

The final evening the kids got to showcase all they'd learned for their parents. GK was front and center showing off her animated moves. 

We had a great time this summer at VBS and loved taking a Journey Off the Map.


The following weekend we closed out Libby's softball season with an end-of-the-year pool party at our house. 

I've said it in an earlier post, but we had a great group of players and parents. Several of the moms pitched in and we pulled out a fun afternoon to celebrate our season with the Lil' Angels.

Party People

Georgia Kate wanted a Paw Patrol party for her third birthday and that's just what she got. We enjoyed a summer evening of swimming, eating and celebrating with friends and family...and the puppies of Paw Patrol.

After swimming with her friends, we dried off and had dinner.

As everyone was standing around outside finishing their meal, Georgia Kate come up to me and said, "I blow out my candles!" She was telling me she was ready to be celebrated. :)

So we sang and she blew out three candles. 

She wasted no time getting down to business when it was time to open her presents. 

She took her new bubble mower for a spin as soon as she could get her dad and granddad to cut open the box!

We logged another successful birthday and we had a great time celebrating with our friends and family! 

Three-years-old looks great on you!

Summer is in Full Swing

Hi blog readers! I've been away from the blog enjoying a great summer with my girls. I can't wait to recap all the fun we've had. 

We set big goals for the summer. 

And we've worked hard to check off each box. Here some pictures from just a few of our adventures so far.

I can't wait to give you all the details of our Summer of 2015!

End of Year Madness

It happens every year. In late April I crack open the calendar and I break into a slight sweat. The weeks of May are penciled, penned and highlighted. The end of school is near and the activities are in full swing. Birthdays, class parties, church activities, reunions, weekend trips. The list seems to get longer every year.

I lovingly call it End-of-the-Year Madness. It's a combination of fun, stress and excitement. So we brace ourselves and get through the month.

Here are a few snap shots from the here, there and everywhere over the month.

Libby's school celebrates the end of the school year with their annual field day called Wet Fest. They play all sorts of water games and relays. The kids love it! 

I took the day off (because it's fun!) and had a good time playing with Libby and her friends.

Vacation Bible School is next week, but we started working on the stage set several weeks ago. I volunteered to paint. And when I brought it home, guess who wanted to help?

I was smart and called in reinforcement from friends. 

Making progress on the panels. I'll post pictures of the entire set once it's set up on stage. 

We also participated in our church's AWANA end-of-the-year program.


Libby was recognized for completing her second book and she was named Clubber of the Year out of her class! It's a great honor and we are proud of her for being dedicated to learning bible verses and being such a good AWANA student this year!

We also had several softball games during the last few weeks of May. We normally play twice a week. But we had three games get rained out so we had to make those up. Needless to say we spent lots of time at the ball fields. 

I had to pinch hit for the team mom one night. She was out sick and asked me to cover dug out duty. Oh my! The girls are so silly...and loud!

Selfie in the dug out!

We finished the season last week and will celebrate with a team our house! (What's is wrong with me? Why do I keep thinking that's a good idea?) 

Happy End of the School Year to you and yours. Three more days until I begin my summer break...
