Our summer days have been full of activity from sun up to sundown. Water balloons, swimming pools, day trips, grilled dinners, smores, and more.
Wes trimmed the trees in our yard and was inspired to get a fire pit to make good use of the wood.
We recently had a fun day trip to visit Adam & Levi's beloved Aunt Tammi & her family. The children had a blast playing together all day.
The campers had a program at the end of the week where they sang all the songs they learned.
Afterwards, there was a cookout at the campground. Levi loved the freedom to run all around and explore.
I am working as a Bible Camp Counselor for 7th and 8th graders this week & am planning their activity time each day!! It should be a fun week.
Have a happy 4th of July!

|In the exam room|
For example, not too long ago, Adam was obsessed with wearing his ball cap, and would be really upset without it. Wes was trying to get him "un-stuck" on this obsession and took it off. Adam cried at first, but Wes turned it into a game to see if Adam could find where his hat was hidden. Adam soon realized he would be okay without his hat on, and it isn't such a big deal to him anymore.
He has this thing right now about arranging and taking pictures of his food. This is a bridge over a river.
And this is a recent Facebook post from Wes: Adam's practicing his letters by drawing them in the air and he just gave me this gem. "A cross looks like a lower case t, except it's made out of wood instead of your imagination."
After the appt., we took Adam to have a special day with us. He had both of us all to himself. We went to the Cincinnati Museum Center. He loved it.
This weekend, I worked in Alabama and was able to bring the boys and one of our favorite college students from church along with me to watch the boys while I worked. We stopped at an amusement/water park called Lake Winnie (near Chattanooga) on our way there. It was an amazing day!! I said many prayers of thanks while we enjoyed some fun in the sun!

One of my favorite things about this time of year is going for evening walks with the boys.
