We've had 9 days of "summer" so far, and Elijah said to me yesterday, "I think we are more busy now than when we were doing school." Well, nobody around here wants to be bored. Everyone has been working hard, and, as Elijah also told Daniel last week, "I've sure been eating a lot more since summer started." Hard work and play does that! Sometimes I feel like I do nothing but cook! Well, at least I know I'm very appreciated!
June is a big birthday month for our family. Three of us have birthdays! Abigail just turned 10, Isaiah turns 9 next week, and I'll be the square root of 2025 minus the square root of 7 squared the following week. :-)
If you can figure out how old I'll be, you can come over some cake!
It will be a Pastel de Tres Leches...mmmmmmmmm!!!!
Last night after church, we loaded up in the van and drove to the city to a road side second hand store. They were selling a variety of items, but there was one table full of roller blades/skates. I was so excited when I found out they were selling them the other day as Abi and Isaiah both wanted a pair for their birthdays.
Ben had been saving his money and decided he'd buy himself a pair too. Daniel bought some helmets too because, heads and cement don't do well together. :)
Our back yard sounds like a park! It's great!
Well, not too much else to say. Daniel and the boys have been gone most every day working at the church. The girls and I organized the kitchen cupboards this morning. Right now, the little ones are running around eating cold cucumbers with lemon, salt and chili. Mmmmm!
By the way, cold watermelon, cold mango, cold pineapple, cold cucumbers, cold oranges, cold cantaloupe... it all tastes way better with lots of lemon, chili powder and salt. :-)
