Summer Update!! (June and July)

OH MY!!  That's exactly what goes through my head when I think about everything that we have crammed into our 7 months here in FL so far.  But, I wouldn't have it any other way.  God has so richly blessed us.  Let me show you a little of what went on during June and July in our house.  By the grace of God, we finished all of our lessons on May 30.  At the beginning of June we celebrated this little beauty turning 5 years old.

Right after, my very bestest friend and her family came from Louisiana to hang out for a couple of days and celebrate her birthday.  We crammed a lot into those few days, but we had a blast.

After that, we took a mini vacation down to this little unknown spot name Cedar Key on the gulf coast of Florida.  Very relaxing place.  It is more of a fishing community so not really any swimming spots.

  We, of course, had lots of park days and lots of canning fresh veggies and homemade salsa.

We had some nights of silly faces and at the end of the June, Little Miss turned 9 mos.  Of course, a week before that she decided to start walking.

The beginning of our July started out extremely rough.  Little Miss caught some type of bug and she was pretty sick for about a week.  But she finally healed and then we celebrated by having Papa and Goggie come for a visit.

We had some model building with Daddy after they left.

Hubby and I finally got our tattoo.
Matthew 19:6  So then, they are no longer two, but one flesh...  Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.

After that we had our niece for 2 weeks and had so much fun.  But you have already seen most of the pics from that in Early Fun Food Friday.

Whew, are you tired yet, if you're staying with me, you're awesome.
Of course, during all of this fun. I'm taking pics and trying to plan for the next school year.

  The coolest part of her visit was that the kiddos created and directed their own movie and asked me to film it.  Now we have an hour long movie of memories. :)  Here they are making scenes and sets.
 Here they are making PB cookies.

I may not have mentioned it, but we've had LOTS of beach days.  Hubby and I love the beach.

At the end of the month, we went to a huge birthday celebration for my Gran's 75th.  I saw people there that I have not seen in over 10 years.

We finished up the month by starting school early, July 28th.  I know we're going to have so many activities this year that I wanted to make sure we would finish in a timely manner next year ;P.  Stay tuned for an entire post on our curriculum choices for this year.  And if you stuck it out to the end of this post, kudos to you and thanks :)  All for now.
