Ecclesiastes 5:18

"...Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

This is my place to come to help me to 'think on these' wonderful things in my life!

"Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." Ecclesiastes 5:18

I am so thankful that I can enjoy the life God has given us with my husband and our children!

At home

Kayleigh and Zoe put this on the fridge today,
probably devoid of articles mainly because
we organized the words by usage a little,
and the articles are all on the other side of the
fridge above the water and ice dispenser....

Summer school!

The girls were putting some make up
on today - I let them because we were
not planning to go anywhere... but they
were not happy with the results!
This is Christa trying to wash it all off, and
not too happy about it!

Hard boiled egg and school room

What it looks like when Zoe packs a snack for the
park when she's tired of sandwiches, lol! This is
a single hard boiled egg, atop of about 4 ice packs!

The school room, during the summer, look
it's not too 'cluttery'! and has reflexite
all over the floor b/c mommy didn't
vacuum it up yet....

Take a good look, won't look like this for long.

Fountain fun with friends!

We were invited by our friends to enjoy the water fountains
at a local outdoor mall. We had a blast!

Christa and her friend sharing snacks and drinks on the
towel to warm up!


It was even fun to watch! And the mommies
even got a little into it to cool off.

Mud at Grandma's and Tiger Lilies!

Grandma called us wanting the girls to make
some mud for her! Of course we were willing
to oblige!

They had an absolute blast!

Then I just wanted to take some pics of the
flowers in our yard before they ceased to

Yellow is a new color for us this year!

Park time with friends!

They found an egg... turned out to be unfertilized,
we waited till we were ready to leave to check!

Impromtpu fishing, with a 'park-made' fishing
pole made by the 'man' of the park trip!

He caught a FISH! Small, but not bad at all for
using what he had found around him to provide
the pole and line and bait!

The pics are all bad, they were taken with
my cellphone on the worst setting - I found out after
the fact of course, and turns out I had my
camera with me the whole time anyway, in a bag! LOL!
Thanks to our friends for a *great* time!
