Summer 2014

With school fast coming to an end, I knew I needed to sit down and write out a list of things I want to accomplish this summer. I knew I wanted this to be a more relaxed summer – focusing on things that make me AND my children smile.

Sometimes the world news seems so bleak. I get caught up in all the sadness that is happening. It is good to let my heart be affected and to cry and pray for others, but I also need to balance that with the needs of my children. They need a relaxed, happy mother. A mother who they can see as a shelter in a sometimes scary world.

They’re all growing up so fast. Before too many summers are over our numbers will no doubt be depleting as they head off into the world to build their own families and memories. With all of this in mind I set out to make a list of things that would make us happy and bring lots of good memories. They are not in any particular order just written as they came to me.

    My plans are to read, read and then read some more :).
    I want to sew – no I NEED to sew!!! Gucci has been growing UP again and her jumpers are getting “short”. Nice excuse though, eh!
    Also, the kids plan to read this summer, play outside and they have started a new “ministry” of coloring pictures for our military. They are collected at our church in a box and then sent to a missionary who makes up packets for our soldiers with tracts, letters from us adults and pics from the kids. SOOO glad we can do something for our military!
    Hoping to do the park with Laura and some other fun stuff.
