It's been awhile!~

It's hard to believe the month of June has almost passed us by! Summer is flying! We have been having a lot of fun. The LPOB (Little Pack of Boys) are all about cowboys lately. When they aren't swimming they are galloping around the house on their "horsies"(..brooms to us, horsies to them :o). holding up and shooting up the rest of the family.

We have loved swimming and playing in the water. The older three kiddies are taking some classes this summer which has kept us hoppin'.
Here is our summer break... broken bone that is..Beware of frozen water bottles falling out of freezers.

We've had a great time visiting with friends..

We are having a great summer. Everyone seems to grow even faster this time of year. It's a precious, precious time.

And what would summer be w/o a mid afternoon snooze..

We hope everyone is having a Blessed summer!!!

2Timothy 2:15~

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

I am so incredibly PROUD of my hubby Jim (AKA Mr. Anonymous). He has graduated with his Master's in Biblical Studies!!!!! An amazing accomplishment!!!!!!!! He is awesome and my hero. How he is able to accomplish so much is such a testimony to God's grace. He loves Jesus. He loves me. He is a wonderful father. He is a faithful preacher to the prisioners. He is a faithful Sunday School Teacher. He is an honest businessman. He is my friend. I am so blessed to know him and even MORE to be married to him. You inspire me honey!!
