Summertime is the best. Most days I feel like I live in a children’s book or a fairy tale. Days filled with trips to the library, the zoo, the museum. I get to join in with my kiddos playing in the sprinkler, building sand castles at the beach, reading books, eating apple slices, having picnics in the backyard, and picking mulberries. As great as it is, it’s pretty non-stop. There are few quiet moments, and solitude is only a dream. Still, I know these days will pass quickly, and I’d rather treasure them than focus on the hard moments. I am thankful for this sweet life that I have as a momma of three little ones.

This first picture of the kids was an attempt at our “morning ritual” – getting out of the house first thing in the morning. Unfortunately, Simeon wasn’t interested in having his picture taken. 🙂















Josh instituted a lovely summer tradition of having a family breakfast and devotional time. Also, Lilia and I have been juicing every morning (see picture of our juice ingredients below). It’s helped us to start the day off right, which has been a huge blessing.
