Busy Summer Days…

We have really been enjoying our summer.  We have been up to a lot of busy fun around here.

Here is what we haven been up to this month…

It is so nice to be closer to family now and enjoy attending birthday parties.

Especially parties for a little one year old as cute as this:

Happy Birthday Hank!

Celebrating the Fourth of July is always one of my favorites:

Stella planning and preparing for a bake sale with friends:

Which seems to be a summer right of passage, but I must say it is a one time passage for me.

It was a wonderful teaching moment for these girls, but I must say that I don’t love when my kids ask people for money.

I would rather teach them to bake and then just share the treats as a kind of service for someone.

…but Stella loved it, and that’s all that matters.

Of course, summer is full of all those fun live in moment moments.

Tess reminds me often to enjoy the moment.

The older kids are becoming more and more independent, but she still demands my help and time.

Which is a good reminder of what my job is; a mother.

…and we just got home from a wonderful week in Pennsylvania.

Hope your summer is going along great.
