YAY for summer!
Yay! I was so encouraged to know that some of you will be joining me for the 30 day challenge. I need the accountability too. Today was day three. How are you doing? I have been waking up early for my time with the Lord and it has been such a great way to start my day again. And wouldn't you know...I have been handling these summer days so much better when I give my day to Him! I love how that works. :)
We have been spending lots of time out here this week. Joel has been leaving the house really early and working really late which means we have been trying to keep busy. It has been hot so it was the perfect week to pull out the pool.
To say that Griffin loves the water is an understatement. I think he could sit in the pool for hours. He just splashes and splashes and smiles away.
He also figured out how to pull down the side of the pool and eat the grass. Nice.
He looks just like Cora in this picture. I think they could have been twins sometimes. They have so many similarities in looks and personality. It is such a blessing as I love that we can see so much of his sister in him. But man, it pulls at my heart when I glance across the room and feel like it could be my Cora sitting right there. Crazy. I am so thankful for that sweet little boy.
We haven't been spending all of our time in the pool. We have been making many trips to the wheat fields to visit daddy too. Levi has been combining, eating his lunch in the field, and riding in the trucks. He even came home with a handful of wheat one night that he could hardly part with. As of tonight, wheat harvest is officially over. Levi loved every minute of it...more on that later.
I was inspired by Megan to make a summer list with Levi this year. To tell you the truth we could have probably just written "farm with daddy" on this list and called it good. That is really all this boy wants to do. But he needs to have a little fun with his mama too, right? So we made a list.
*zoo *sprinkler park *art project *big pool *plant pumpkins *popsicles *family vacation somewhere (where should we go??) *library *water balloons *wheat harvest * Bible time *homemade ice cream *make moon sand *movie night + popcorn *potty training (Levi) *memorize two verses *little pool *paint *picnic at park *4th of July party *crawling + sleeping (Griffin) *catch fire flies (oops! I just noticed I spelled that wrong) *plant beans *farm, farm, farm!
I have a short list for myself this summer too.
*quiet time (starting with the 30 day challenge) *running *finish Griffin's room *organize/print pictures *read 2 books *memorize Psalm 139 *end the summer with one boy who is potty trained and one boy who is sleeping through the night (nbd, right?!)
