Imagine Olaf singing "S U M M E RRRRR"

We are just as happy that its summer as Olaf when he sings about it in Frozen. Actually maybe a little more. I find myself waking up later and later, not going to bed later..just sleeping in a little bit. And you know what, its just fine. Most of my workout group friends are teachers too so we have adjusted to meeting each other later....and its soooo weird to exercise in the daylight ;).

We are currently at the library and all 3 kids are trying their best to win the top reading award that Goober won last year. They are reading fools and I am so thankful for it.

We have started every morning off with bible reading, songs, lots of dancing, breakfast and then sending Daddy to work. Today we also got to work and fully rearranged my room. Yesterday 16 of my upcoming 8th graders met us to tackle moving all of my drying racks around and today me and the kids finished up the details. Then we met our neighbors (on the left and to the back) to swim for 2 hours.

Yesterday we also got to have Baby Levi for the whole afternoon. We had so much fun trying to make him smile. The kids loved to entertain him and Adam and I were in baby heaven. He loved playing Peek A Boo with Adam. I got clobbered as he would reach for my face and smother me with drooly kisses. It was the best. I took him on a walk when he got a little fussy and he took it all in...even fell asleep for the last 5 better believe I took all the cuddles I could get! On the way back from picking him up he sat by Little Man and I heard him say "Hey Levi, wanna have a staring contest". A few minutes later he said "mom, I keep winning, he keeps blinking!". Then we got home and Little Man said " Lets watch Wild Kratts..I think that is good for babies"!

When we got to church last night there was a young lady who wasn't dressed as modest as I would like. From the back seat I hear Ribbit say "Why is she wearing that...we are at church, not a rock and roll concert"...hehe. She really annoys Goober when he says things like "that was the best ________ ever" or "that athlete is the best at _________"...he sister quickly says "they aren't better than God, thats not better than what God can do". Our little holy roller :).

We are counting down the days until our Grand Canyon trip....but first VBS, art camp and some time with family!

A fascinating tidbit from our bible study yesterday morning.
Genesis 5:6-24
When Seth had lived 105 years, he became the father[b] of Enosh. After he became the father of Enosh, Seth lived 807 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Seth lived a total of 912 years, and then he died.
When Enosh had lived 90 years, he became the father of Kenan. 10 After he became the father of Kenan, Enosh lived 815 years and had other sons and daughters. 11 Altogether, Enosh lived a total of 905 years, and then he died.
12 When Kenan had lived 70 years, he became the father of Mahalalel. 13 After he became the father of Mahalalel, Kenan lived 840 years and had other sons and daughters. 14 Altogether, Kenan lived a total of 910 years, and then he died.
15 When Mahalalel had lived 65 years, he became the father of Jared. 16 After he became the father of Jared, Mahalalel lived 830 years and had other sons and daughters. 17 Altogether, Mahalalel lived a total of 895 years, and then he died.
18 When Jared had lived 162 years, he became the father of Enoch. 19 After he became the father of Enoch, Jared lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. 20 Altogether, Jared lived a total of 962 years, and then he died.
21 When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah. 22 After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years. 24 Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

So, did you see it? In this long lineage only Enoch is noted as "Enoch walked faithfully with God" in both vs. 22 and 24. All these other guys lived a total of a bunch of years and fathered kiddos and died. BUT ENOCH WALKED FAITHFULLY WITH GOD. There is a huge difference between living and walking with God. Its the difference between claiming to believe in God and truly letting him be Lord of your life. Its the difference between slavery and freedom, between night and day, death and life.  I don't know about you but I want my tombstone to say "She walked faithfully with God"....not just 1984-?????. Its amazing what the bible reveals to us as we read it over and over again, even in the "boring" genealogies there is so much to be gleamed!

Oh, and Enoch didn't die!!!!! GOD TOOK HIM AWAY!!! Thats kind of a big deal too!!!

Field Day Sack races....oh the cutest BUNNY!

Already enjoying ourselves at the library..sister was curled up in my lap!

These 2 won the 3 legged race both times...look at that tongue!

They were fast!

Big Brother and Brendan followed up with another win!

Love this energy!

Sack races aren't so cool for 6th grade boys...they like to CHEAT!!!

Sweet friends enjoying sno cones!

The tug of war team that was serious enough about winning to bring gloves just for this event!


Pass the leaky bucket was an instant favorite as the sun came out!

We had two friends come home with us for lunch after the last day of school...and then go with us to Jump Street!

Introducing our pet chicken Phoenix to our friends.

More beautiful hair styles!

Ribbit and I can tear up some mussels!!!!

We found matching shirts and instantly had to have them....I know she won't always want to match me but it sure is fun now!
