I can tell summer is winding down because the schedule is filling up! It has been a fun and productive week. Here's a glimpse.
Small group tonight, complete with dessert selections.
Everyone said they were yummy. I was a good girl and didn't have any.
Since we went to Kevin's reunion last week, I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to do some more reuniting. (is that a word?) So here was my reunion shot.
Oh Jillian, I have missed you so. With the stress of the job loss and the crazy schedule, I stopped doing this. Oh has my body paid for it. So today we reunited and it felt so good. (no, that's a song, not how I really felt!) Anyway, back to the grind with Jillian.
Kyla loves to take pictures and took this one today.
Reese actually was still enough for a picture. That's amazing!
A good friend called us for an impromptu swim. Of course I didn't take a picture of them in the water, but here's the aftermath.
More toadstools. (and one crazy brown running furry thing in the background!)
This morning Ella woke up with her eye like this.
She had gotten mosquito bites on the bridge of her nose and her eyebrow yesterday. We were giving her Benadryl, but the swelling wasn't going down. Ended up going to the doctor who told us to continue with the Benadryl regimen and ice if needed and that it would take a few days to pass.
Good thing she was well enough to do this.
My sweet friend Anita and I were meeting regarding Bible study and she invited the kids to come swim in her pool.
Ethan going off a diving board for the first time ever. Let's just say if you needed to find him after that, he was always going off. LOVED it!!
Kyla in the shallow end!
And of course you have to have some lounging time too!
See how swollen her poor eye is? Anyway, I wish all meetings were like this! Thank you to Miss Anita and her wonderful daughters for a fun afternoon!!
We had "A" spend the night and then took all the kids to lunch and miniature golfing. I love free coupons and easy fun!!
I also received this from a friend today. Do you know what it is?
It is called a green tint patty pan summer squash. Isn't it a fun shape? It tasted good too!
Today I spent the bulk of my day at a retreat for small group leaders. This is where it was held.
It is on lovely grounds and is just exquisite inside! It used to be a professional baseball players home. There were a lot of these on the grounds too.
I love Brown Eyed Susans. (yes, I know they are called Black Eyed Susans, but I have a friend named Susan with brown eyes, so for the past 15 years they have been Brown Eyed Susans)
There you have it. A fun filled, busy week! Hope you have had a great one!!
