Summer moves fast, doesn’t it? This is where I sort of panic and think, “oh my goodness, it’ll be over before we know it, we need to get out there and enjoy it NOW!” I say that, and it’s not even technically summer yet!
We’ve got an attempt at a garden underway, the mosquitoes are out in full force, and we’ve got popsicles and bubbles on the mind a lot lately, so we’ve pretty much been operating in summer mode for a while now 🙂
In other news-
Baby Faith was almost over her wheezy cough, and then it started back up again late last week. The last 48 hrs have been long for this tired mother. It’s very hard to sleep when your baby sounds like that. I’m watching her closely, and nebbing* her more often again. I may be bringing her back in to touch base with the pediatrician yet again, as I don’t like the tight sound of her cough this morning.
Most of the children are signed up for the local library’s summer reading program. I think Liberty is shooting for some sort of record. She reminds me my younger self lately, always with her nose stuck in a book. Our reluctant reader has been making a valiant effort as well, so that’s super duper encouraging!
The humidity lately has been horrid, made worse by the fact that we have no air conditioning in our van, and the fairly old air conditioner at the house has seen better days…
We just finished up a series of good old-fashioned revival meetings at our church. Good stuff, plenty to think upon this week.
