My Summer Fun List

Summer Fun ListIn four weeks, school will be breaking up and my daughter and I will have six weeks to fill because, while my poor husband has to work, I don’t (yay!) – well not much.  We’re already talking about what we’ll do and praying for good weather.  Over on Natalie the Explorer, I saw a Summer Fun List and thought it sounded like a great idea.  It means we can have a plan of sorts and won’t get to September thinking “why didn’t we do xyz?”

May in a Sentence a Day

sentence a day.jpgI first came across this post on Natalie the Explorer’s blog and thought it was great. She, and some other bloggers, share their month in a sentence a day. I thought it would be fun to join in, though I’m not that good at limiting my days to just one sentence.  It’s good to look back at what I’ve been up to and makes me feel grateful for the good in my life.  So, without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to.
