We also have a short Summer vacation this year and seems that we squeeze everything we can in -- swimming, camping, VBS, Christian Camp for girls, sleepovers, playdates with friends, more swimming, more camping... and so on...
I do love Summer and I do love having my girls home. It is nice to stay up late and sleep in a little bit. I still haven't quite got Audria trained yet. Though, one day she did sleep in until about 10am and I awoke her up. But, for the most part she wakes about 8:00am, which is sleeping in for her.
The weather has been remarkably beautiful -- not too many hot days thus far. Though, I am thinking maybe in August it just might start being HOT again..... maybe that will be a good time to hit the coast.
I love the ocean. And, I have made it a priority this Summer for my toes to find the sand and salty waters!
We have most of our garden in as well -- and so far our thumbs are turning to be green and not brown. We planted a little bit later than usual, however the weather has also been a little unusual as well. We have got lots of tomatoes, peppers, beans, eggplant, carrots, chard, basil, arugula, lettuces, beets, and more!! I am still wanting to plant some potatoes....do you think it is too late??
I am wanting to have a year around garden -- just have to find out what grows best in what season.
Update on my health -- I am still trying to take it easy and also to try and eat as health as I can. Unfortunately, (and honestly) I am not always good about eating the right things. I LOVE to eat...and I LOVE to eat the not so healthy carbs, sugar, salt foods. Ugh. But, I am really trying to change my ways of eating more and more towards a healthy diet. I think I will share more on that later.
As of now, my goals --- exercise ( I am not one to like exercise - so prayers appreciated!!!) and also healthy eating.
I thought I would share some pics with you of our happenings in the month of June!! Hope you are all doing well and blessed.
