summertime.

summer is here and we have a fun project happening!  we've dug up the yard and brought in the fun machines.  i.e. dozers and diggers.


its been constant entertainment for the last 8 weeks.




and can i just insert some cuteness here.  chichi is 10 months old!  he is completely adorable and spoiled.  i'm not even going to try to deny it.

back to the pool project.  we chose a square, dark gray slate tile for the top border.

the interior will be a hydrazzo finish in the color 'french gray'.

back to some serious cuteness.  chichi loves loves loves his older siblings.  they tote him around and play constantly.






are you enjoying your summer?  

we don't completely stop school.....we do a math lesson here and there, a full day of school here and there, but mostly just enjoy the outdoors and do Bible time (i'm using the apologia What We Believe Vol. 1 and LOVE IT!)  

remember.....you don't have to "do it all".....keep it simple.  Love God, Love your spouse, Love your kids.  Spend time with each of them.  Its the relationships in life that matter....not the stuff.  

hugs, kisses, walks, and holding hands.   listen.  appreciate.

  2. The pool looks like such a fun project! Are ya'll putting it in yourselves, or did you hire a company? It looks like a big diy project; is it more cost effective?? (I'm asking for future reference ;)) Your children are absolutely precious, love the pictures of both girls holding little A!

  6. Am excited for you guys to have a pool! So much fun! Would love to chat via email sometime about homeschool stuff. As the kids have grown older, most of my homeschooling friends have stopped homeschooling. I seem to be one of the last ones standing ;) anyway. I haven't even looked into curriculums past elementary... Will you homeschool through junior high and high school?

    Happy weekend!

  15. The pool is certain to bring fun memories for your beautiful kids! One family we know uses a two Little Tike slides for all the kids to use, one is smaller and one is bigger...I thought it was very creative. I wish I could keep up with you on Instagram, but my computer doesn't seem to be able to pull it up. God Bless each one of you. --Jill
