let it begin.

Let it begin. 
Summer, that is.
Yes. Let it begin.

The calendar dosen’t officially say summer but school is out, the temperature is in the mid 90’s and the pool is open! It is summer my friends.

The last few weeks were just what I was praying for. Restful, a time of reflection and I gained a little margin. All things that were much needed. It was a great way for me to transition into our summer schedule. Amen.

This summer is going to be FUN! Already the girls have learned to ride their bikes without training wheels , swimming without life jackets and jumping into the deep end like wild women! Mase is back to dominating the diving board and praying for a half inch growth spurt ASAP so he can go on the water slides at the pool. Yesterday we went to the pool and Brian and I actually sat on the lounge chairs for 25 minutes while the kids were in the pool. Yeah, that didn’t happen ALL summer long last year. This summer we are relishing in the fact that our kids are getting older and more independent.

Summer for us is all about: 
later bedtimes, way too much ice cream, bike rides, long days at the pool, summer camp, grilling out for most dinners and using paper plates, spray parks, VBS, hanging out with friends, beach vacation, lazy afternoons and lots and lots of family time.

So here we go into summer.

Let it begin!

What are you planning for your summer?

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. Sounds like a fun start to the season — you’ve *arrived* with those few precious minutes of chair time at the pool! We’re planning a lot of the same around here, but for the next couple of weeks, we’re still in school with a one-foot-in-one-foot-out approach to summer until our final day of studies. Enjoy your long, sunny days!

  2. Hey! I will be praying for your last couple weeks. May it be fun and fast! Enjoy your long, sunny days soon to come too!

  3. love this. the half in growth spurt! so cute. and how amazing to sit by the pool for 25 min! i have a feeling i won’t get that this year with my little dude. oh our summers will be so different. mine i see in three parts. 1. starting up summer and saying good bye to our home and friends here. 2. family time… ie.. when we leave here we will have plenty of family time in the car. also family time in ohio. hopefully we can do some of your summer things together! 3. moving in to jax… i don’t know what that is going to look like. but i’m anxious. and trying not to lose sight of #1 and 2 first.
