This weekend kicks off the unofficial SUMMERTIME season! Right now, all the lights are out in the house, there is a thunderstorm flickering outside and there are 5 kids and Kim playing hide-and-go-seek in the dark.
I love this time of year. Excitement and relief from the end of the school year for Nicole, graduation for Steve, and A/B honor roll for Jessie along with her acceptance into school chorus and safety patrol for next year. Just like for Phineas and Ferb, excitement lays ahead for all the possibilities this summer holds.
Steve is in the midst of diving into a summer ministry taking at-risk kids into the wild adventures of hiking, kayaking, and rafting. A dream job for him!
Flowers are planted out front, grass is mowed, trees trimmed up. The screen porch beckons to all of us. Conversations with friends, Kim, kids... Steve hangs his hiking hammock and sleeps out there often and the girls do too when he lets them : ) I take the guitar out there and make up new stuff.
God was so good to give us changing seasons. Life is good.
