Todays post is a blatant rip-off of this post by Wendy....fellow Christian Texan and adoptive parent. You should check out her blog, she is an amazing woman, married to an amazing man, with an amazing mission in life. God Bless our Fire Fighters!
So, June is gone. Hand me a paper bag please!!!! This means I'm down to one month before we leave. Feelin' sick here. And no, not a single bite on the house. Kill me now. I don't do patience or stress well.
So, to combat a serious case of over-stress-itis, I will share the loves of my summer so far. Even though its flying by too fast, it has been a beautiful summer.
My summer loves so far this year....
Father's Day in Fort Worth with the whole family....except my husband, my son and one of my nephews. Haven't seen that many of the Frymark's together in one place in longer than I can remember. Wish I had a picture or two, but I forgot to take the camera.
A weekend at the lakehouse. Amazing. Fantastic. Probably not to be duplicated again in my lifetime.
Camping with my wonderful daughter. Just mom and Songbird. We don't get much of that since I dropped out of Girl Scouts. I really miss it.
(Our youth pastor demonstrates his "Monkey Walks On Water" Fung-Fu moves on our camp-out.)
Not one, but two birthdays with my friends at Uncorked. Can you say Chocolate Fondue?? Yummy! And the circle of friends? Awesome. I also got to know a few new friends, and am very sad that I won't be around to expand upon those friendships. Stephanie....you are really my type girl. We could get into trouble together I am quite sure.
Hot, hot weather. Yes. I mean it. I will miss you Mr. 100+. I will pine for you when I'm stuck in the snow. Sob!
The kid pool at the Y. Nothing makes Mighty Mouse happier than swimming. A happy Mighty Mouse = a happy mommy. And daddy. And sissy.
Working on a gift quilt for a special boy when its too hot to be outside. Creating something from nothing, or with your hands gives a satisfaction that can't hardly be matched.
Finding a soap I can use on my skin...that smells good to. Love Great Cakes Soapworks.
And of course any book I can get my hands on. Right now I'm reading a book called Nights At The Circus. Strange but good book. Also reading Middlesex, which I didn't think I'd like but has turned out to be rather good.
So what are your summer loves?
