Summer Pros & Cons
|Watering the daisies|
Using fresh food from our garden, radishes with garlic salt, mint in our water, basil & green onions on our fish, popping strawberries and cherries when we walk by.
Playing in the neighborhood, sprinkler, beauty shoppe on the front steps, dodge ball, medic, pushing babies in strollers (real & plastic), basketball & pitching to little brothers.
Watching baseball & soccer games.
James being an Altar Server for the first time and seeing what a gift a strong faith foundation is when you have a child entering the pre teens.
|Cozy Fathers Day moment|
Worst parts of summer so far:
Getting TO baseball & soccer games.
Cleaning. How many wet suits and towels can 8 children create? Lots apparently.
Cooking, we are all getting sick of sandwhiches but really 3 meals a day a gal can only get so creative.
|Our table works well for the kids but someday|
I have a huge farm table on my wish list!!
Overall a great start to summer. Annie is off for a WEEK long camp and most of the boys start football camp in the morning. We have celebrated oodles of birthdays and more to come. Our house officially is 12, 10,10, 9, 8, 6, 4 and 18m. Well and some in the 30's but those we don't disclose:)
