august: soaking it in

cuckoo bright
Summertime's tickin' away.....
and if this space is a bit quiet for a couple of weeks,
it's because I'm slowing down, soaking in the heat 
and the fleeting moments with these kids,
their summer of being 9, 8 and almost 5 flying by entirely too fast.

We're riding bikes and getting ice cream and playing games and rocking on the porch and shucking corn and working hard and laughing with friends and celebrating and loving.....basically just enjoying all the good gifts He's given us.

And with life and preparing for what we'll study in the fall and also a big project (double the size this year!) I'm obsessing over entrusted with this month, I know I'll not be able to find much time to sit down here in this place.  You understand, right?

I'll certainly be around, posting some random things and also over on FB if you want to chat, otherwise,
I pray you have a wonderful August!
