June has been an eventful month for us. Yet we still found a few moments to do what I like best about summer, wasting time just being together. This page off Nana's calendar just about sums up my philosophy on summer months.
It seems April showers made way for May showers that have continued on into June. It has been such a rainy time. Every day this week we had a thunderstorm right around 3:15. No worry though. We love storms. When we are indoors we miss our time outdoors but we have lots of other fun activities to fill the time.
Carmella is thrilled with the towers she can build now. She cracks me up when she puts the top on and claps for herself.
You know there had to be food in there, didn't you? At dinner one night we were trying to recreate a dessert we had at the Prime Time Cafe at Disney Studios. Any suggestions let me know!
I ate the doughnut. For future reference though, if you are going to bring me a doughnut I'd much prefer a nice simple plain doughnut. Like a Cruller.
They are still looking for recruits so if you would like to get in on this project leave me a comment and they will contact you with the simple details. You do not need to be here to take part. Just have a camera and an email address.
After taping their footage, the girls gave a crochet lesson to this amazing young woman. While I am at it, can I say what a blessing it is to know young women, like Maddy, who are so devoted to making their life count for the Lord?
Nathaniel built Cair Paravel by the pool one afternoon.
Aedan captured a caterpillar and the kids had a blast watching him build a cocoon and emerge into a butterfly.
The lilies around the pool are so tall they reach over the top of the fence. All this rain has been fabulous for the gardens! I love not having to water.
He had a little help with this super moon. It was a breathtaking sight to watch it come up and rise over the trees as we munched on olives and cheese.
Carmella is loving fireflies this year. She took a jar to bed with her the other night.
