How Happy I am THIS Summer!

 And how happy I was with what he created—his wide world and all his family of mankind! (Proverbs 8:31 TLB)


To be with children keeps your heart and soul alive. I have the joy and privilege to spend summer break with my nieces and nephews. We call our adventures: Ant Kamp. We have been so immersed in our own little world, I haven’t had a chance to do much more than chronicle our Ant-ics via photos on Facebook. I would love to tell you about it all some time, but today, I just wanted to say hello! And let you know I am HAPPY!

I have been playing! And working! And playing while working!

And neglecting the blog…so here I am tonight. And I really wanted to share some words, which I have been savoring from the blogosphere, as well as a couple fun art links. (And some happy snapshots from the summer thus far.)

  1. Kel: You are making memories for your nieces and nephews. I love the idea of their making T-shirts. The tomatoes look very good. We get new doors on Tuesday. Our son was here last weekend as he wound up his 2-week vacation.In July Hubby has two surgery dates. At the end of July, we get our yard barn built. This past week was VBS at church. A busy time for all of the workers (40 of them.) Nice to hear from you.

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
