Wow, it has been a while since I posted and the summer just seems to be flying by. We have been quite busy here. The girls were in swimming lessons for two weeks. (They passed their levels, yeah!) I think it is important for children to learn to swim as you never know when they might fall into a body of water and their swimming skills could save them. In our area there is only an outdoor pool so swimming lessons in the summer it is. The girls also attended VBS (Vacation Bible School) for a week and they really enjoyed that as always. Now the girls are off at camp for three days. It is weird not having them around and I get a little worried about them being so far away. But all must be well as I haven't received a phone call and I will be picking them up tonight so they will be home soon. (Isn't amazing how when your kids are around all you want is for them to leave you alone for a while but when they are gone you miss them like crazy?). We have no more scheduled activities this summer and I am looking forward to some slower days. There is lot's to be done in the house and garden but I also want to spend some time with the kids doing some activities around home and enjoying some lazy summer days. School is just around the corner and our schedule will soon be busy again.
