Simplifying Summer

Simplifying our summer has been a mission of mine. A summer with simple adventure and meaningful moments...moments that enrich mind, body, spirit, soul. A summer of Popsicles, library books, and little day trips. A summer of quiet contentment, of exploring the nature around us. A summer without stress and over booked schedules. A summer of soaking up these moments of here and now, reveling in the glory of God's gifts... of these two boys who are growing up faster than I want.

So we Slow Down....



"Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. "(James 4:14)

A couple hours fun

Rockets Red Glare

At a "Little House"

History Lesson

A nature walk

Rock hopping

Gone fishin'

A blue beauty

Just coolin' off

Nice looking boys :-) I wish i had a moment to slow down (at work now). That's life living in New York though. I can't complain. I guess I wouldn't have any other way. (maybe)

Thank you for the comments!

Michelle, sometimes we just have to force the slow. Summer is definitely our time to take it all in.

Michael, I'm a tryin', I'm a tryin'.
