Summer around here

Hello friends! I hope you're having a great June day! Mine is off to a slow start, but that's kinda how I like it in the summer. There is lots going on in our household these days. I'm trying to take it one day at a time and not let anxiety creep in, but it's hard. You see, back in the fall, Kelvin and I set some goals. One of those was to move in June. We weren't positive exactly where, but we knew we wanted to move. So, a couple of months ago, we found a house that would work for our family in an area that we like, so we thought we would go for it. Problem is, we couldn't get our bid in quickly enough, and someone else got the house. Grr! Bigger problem  challenge is, now we have a contract on our house and are scheduled to close at the end of July but, we haven't found a house to buy. Double GRRR! If you or someone you know is thinking about moving from a 4 bedroom/2+ bathroom in Beach City, please contact Kelvin or me before you list it. I'll cook something yummy for you if you do! Houses are going like wildfire out there! Thanks!

The kids are doing all the summer things. Luke leaves for a week long leadership camp in Washington D.C. and Carleigh leaves for youth camp in a couple of weeks. Cora has completed basketball camp and will do volleyball camp in July. Luke will also go to Preteen Camp and Carleigh will make a trip to working ranch in July. Kelvin is traveling a bit for work as well, and I have a music teacher convention in July too. Of course, there will be swimming, reading, cooking out, roasting marshmallows and maybe a beach trip or two. Sadly, no big vacays for us this year. I'm going to miss my weeklong Fourth of July trip at the beach with our good friends Jimmy and Angie. I'll miss Colorado too. It's so gorgeous there and such a nice reprieve from the heat. We will concentrate on moving instead.

My sweet and extremely talented and creative friend, Cara, posted a cool summer challenge for her kiddos. I tweaked it just a bit to fit our crew better.

Cute, huh? My kids would spend the entire day on their phone, ipads, or TV, so I thought it would be a good thing to give them a few ideas of things to do instead. They don't completely agree, but that's ok! :)

The weekend was full of wedding fun. Cora was a flower girl in one of our precious babysitter's wedding. She has kept our children since she was a freshman in high school! She was a beautiful bride. I must say, she picked the perfect flower girl! We love you, Jamie!

Well, I guess I should do something productive...pack the house, go to the grocery store and bank, look for houses, etc. I'm sure my children would appreciate something for lunch or whatever the meal is called between lunch and supper. Lupper? 

Hoping to do another favorite things post tomorrow...summer edition! 

Peace, love, and hugs!
