Our 2017 summer in bullet points & pictures 🙂 

The girls went into town and watched the Independence Day parade.
Days were spent by the pool. 
Emily and Audrey went to the Homeschool prom. It was pretty awesome. 
We took a family vacation to the beach late April early May.
We ate dinner at The Wahlburgers Restaurant at Myrtle Beach.
Audrey and I went to a Sam Hunt concert with a couple of her friends for her Bday. 
We also went to see Luke Bryan and Brett Eldridge. Pretty awesome concert. 
Emily graduated high school. How is that possible?

Snow Day!

A week or so ago we had a pretty nice little snowstorm come through. The first couple days we were pretty much stuck at home because the roads were so bad. As soon as we were able to get out the girls were ready for some sledding!

And what good is a snow day if you can’t start a snowball fight with your sister.

I love the snow but I love it so much better when it is gone!

Winter Wonderland

 

I am so over winter. I hate being cold. And this has been a COLD winter. I mean, I get cold when it gets below 70 degrees so I’ve been freezing since summer ended. 

The girls did enjoy getting out in the snow yesterday. Unlike our last snow day, this was good snowman, snowball making snow. Audrey even made her a bowl of snow cream. She wanted to make it last time but there was too much ice mixed in.

With the trees covered in snow it truly did look like a winter wonderland. It was so peaceful outside too. Not a sound.

It is freezing here!! My goodness can we just hurry up and get to warmer weather!! This past week has been full of snow, ice and really cold weather.

So, the big girl received her driver’s license. Just about everyone has asked if I’m nervous about her driving, just a little, but mainly excited because now I can stay at home! She can do all the running back and forth to all the places the kiddos need to go! Until she gets tired of it but right now I’m sure it will be fun 🙂 

Snow day

 Audrey has been playing around with the sewing machine for the past month or so trying to get the hang of things. She made the cutest little owls! Sarah now wants to learn to sew! I printed her out a couple of sewing patterns to practice on. She did really well. Both of the girls girls are much better at sewing than I am lol 

The girls doubled up on their schoolwork Monday so they could take a “snow day” on Tuesday. David took the girls out sledding while I stayed inside watching Netflix!! Here is a video that Emily made with her GoPro

Looks like they had lots of fun playing out in the freezing cold!  

ColorI downloaded the Project Life App for the iPhone and I’m loving it! Now I can just plug in a few pictures from our day and save it to my phone and flickr. Another great thing, you can have 12 x 12 pictures printed from the app! This will make it much easier for me to document what we’ve been up to.

christmas

 

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given–when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.”
