#1 A trip to the National Zoo in Washington DC with The Inventor and my niece. It was a hot day, but we endured, and got to see LOTS of animals. I once again stood in awe of how each animal is so unique, God is an amazing creator!
#2 I decided to have a fun biking work out with my son on Thurs. We rode bikes down to the high school weight room for him to lift weights……and yes much to his joy horror, I lifted some too! I cranked some of those weights all the way up to 50lbs. with 15-20 reps. Whoa! LOL. We then biked to his dentist appointment and then home. It was a great work out, just trying to keep up with SportTman on all the hills was enough to do me in. But I loved it! I realize that I tend to be a bit competitive. 🙂
#3 Finally after years of complaining about the wallpaper in our downstairs bathroom, I did it! I got rid of it!( Hallelujah chorus should start singing now!) Here are a few before and after shots. Since SportTman is the main one who will use this bathroom, I hung up a bunch of baseball related pictures.
#4 Corn on the Cob….need I say more
#5 Some much needed down time this summer. It gives me sometime to focus on the other 3 R’s
Relax, Renew, and Revive my weary heart. Summer has been a good time for me to refocus ( another good R) on the things of the Lord. I get so busy and I often loose that focus, and don’t take the time I should for the Lord. So this summer has been good for me, to spend time at the feet of Jesus instead of in defeat!
