Our summer in a nutshell ~ 2014

Our summer flew by in a flurry of busyness, but we also managed to fit in some time to enjoy being with each other and our friends.  I am finding yet more obstacles to good blogging...as the kids get older, I am doing more participating with them in activities and less watching, which means fewer pictures.  I have also graduated to a smartphone now, so it's so much easier to just snap a picture and upload it to facebook in a few seconds.  I am trying to find a good balance!

Here are just a few highlights of our summer...
We finished school and the kids were promoted to fifth and seventh grades! (gulp)
We had a wonderful week at summer camp
Abigail was chosen to participate in the silly game show!
 We played at the lake
We led our church's Backyard Bible Club
We had an absolutely wonderful time together on our end-of-school-year family outing; this year we went to Six Flags.
We celebrated the end of summer break by enjoying a day with friends at a local aquatic center...
...and Abigail overcame a major fear to conquer a waterslide all by herself (and loved it)!
Ah, summer break...you were fleeting, but wonderful while you lasted!
