Most of the rest of our first month of summer was consumed with this:
Summer Stock! All the girls were involved this year – Sarah as stage manager, Bethany as a mentor and one of the fairies, Becca was Tiger Lily, & Elise was an Indian. Summer Stock details will come in the next post.
Here’s some other stuff that happened…Sarah got sick – for several days. And she NEVER gets sick, so we had to document it.
I spent several glorious hours poring over school catalogs and making requests for my Kindergarten classroom.
Ed celebrated 20 years of working full-time at Logos/Faithlife!
We enjoyed Faithlife Family Night at the Bellingham Bells game!
We made raspberry jam and IT WORKED!!! Hallelujah!
A dear friend’s FIL built us a custom cabinet for our master bath. I LOVE it!!!
My jewelry drawer!
I am still going to add knobs to the cupboard doors and drawer, but haven’t gotten to the store to get them yet.
Spent a glorious afternoon with one of my besties at my happy place – Boulevard Park. If only she didn’t live in Minnesota – we could do that more often!
Venus & Jupiter got real close together. Ed & I liked to watch them moving closer for several nights on our evening walks.
Bethany started her first job on the berry picker! She loves it! One of these days I will have to take an after picture….unless you’ve worked in the berries yourself, it’s hard to imagine just how dirty these kids get!
Spent another morning with another bestie visiting from out of state – Starbucks and antiquing as usual and we loved it!
A day at Ikea with some more besties (summer can be tough on moms so we have to give ourselves some playtime, too!)
Okay, technically, the Ikea trip happened in July, as did the next set of pictures. But it’s my blog and I can do that.
A little family adventure in Bellingham, exploring a new little beach and a birthday dessert for Sarah (& yes, her birthday was in April…it’s just sometimes hard to get those things done!)
The first third of summer 2015 was outstanding!
