Catching Up on the Summer

It has been quite awhile since I have had time to post this summer.  Here are some highlights:

Anders made granola, Daddy’s favorite, for Benjamin.  About a cup of it ended up on the floor…

And a new shirt for Dad with the blueprints for a boat.  Not meant to encourage yet another project, please!

Eleven. Years of Marriage that is…

We went out to our favorite Thai resturant, watched the sunset and rented a french film to watch at home, with the boys gone for the night!  We do enough reflection, so the night was just about fun and relaxation–the joy of simply being together was more than enough.  Yes, the pregnant chipmunk cheeks were out in full bloom for the occasion!

School is Out!

We made it through our first year of homeschool!  Larsen passed his evaluation with flying colors so Mama can settle down a wee bit I suppose. I don’t know who was prouder or more relieved to have a break, the boys or me!

After his evaluation and official graduation from 2nd grade, I took Lars out for desert and gave him a gift, a little brass telescope to remind him of his life verses (Proverbs 2:1-8), to always be a seeker of wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  My, how my boy has grown this year!

How We Spend the Summer Days

Rain can’t stop them, not can the oppresive summer heat!

Two of Anders favorite pastimes: playing guitar with a paperclip for a pick and painting abstract pieces of art.
