Back from Blogging Hiatus

Hello Friends!  I am back.  It has been a long, hard, busy, and very hot summer.  We are still here, and we are doing well.  Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog or sent me emails to check in with me and see how I was doing.  It is so nice to know that I'm not forgotten.  Thank you for bearing with me as I have been so quiet.  I have been wanting to blog all summer, but fatigue and brain fog have kept me away.  As I am able I will try to keep up with blogging and catch you up on the old news. For now, I am going to give you a quick glimpse into the last couple of months.

In May we went to the Creation Museum for our family vacation. It was really neat, and I am really hoping for energy to blog about the museum and share pictures at a later date.  Later on in the month of May we went to Georgia to visit my family.  It was great to see them again and spend time together.  We were also able to visit with people from our home church in Georgia.  It is always good to see our church family there and reconnect with them.


In June we travelled to Alabama and celebrated my Tante Hanna's 90th birthday!  She travelled over from Germany for the special occasion.


In July William had his face painted like Spider Man. 


I dressed Adelaide up like a ballerina.


William and Adelaide on the 4th of July
We celebrated Independence Day with an indoor picnic.


My mom stayed here and helped us out a lot this summer while Will took several J-term classes.  We couldn't have made it through those long weeks without her help.  She was here for about 3 weeks total helping me with William and Adelaide, and keeping up with the cooking, cleaning, laundry, and shopping.  Is my mom great or what? 


We planted our flower pot garden.  We have enjoyed taking care of the plants, watching the flowers bloom, and eating fresh tomatoes, herbs, and okra.

How are you doing?  How has your summer been?

P.S.  I'm working on updating my blog.  You'll see some things slowly chaning over the next few days/weeks.

Hey Rachel! Welcome back! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Looking forward to hearing about the Creation Museum. We were going to go there on the way to Florida but ran out of time.
