However, there HAVE been a few lazy days tucked in here and there. Days where we don't have to go anywhere, lazy afternoons spent playing in the pool, evenings spent outside playing horseshoes with the kids. These are the days that I enjoy the most. And they are the ones that are most fleeting. Only three and a half weeks left for us until the new school year starts. See what I mean about fleeting?
But I am determined to make the most of the time that's left. I keep saying I'm going to put up a hammock in my backyard and spend some lazy summer afternoons out there with a good book... but, it's just too hot for that in south Georgia! I hope your summer is turning out to be all that you hoped it would!
Here are some pictures depicting our summer thus far...

fun games at VBS
As you can see, the youth helpers had as much fun as the kids.
Basketball Camp ~ Kate #11
Kid's Club Summer Bowling
Yes! A strike!
We have a new rabbit! He is a Lion Head Rabbit, so called because the hair all around his face resembles a lion's mane.
The kids decided to call him Mo because he looks like he has a mohawk!
Marshmallow looks like a giant compared to Mo and Thumper, the flop-earred rabbit.
Our two youngest children spent a week in Alabama with their Aunt Debbie (my husband's sister) and their Granddaddy (who lives with Debbie).
at the water park, one of the many fun things she did with them
July 4th ~ waiting for the fireworks show to begin
We were not disappointed.

Mike and Kate on the jet ski
Will, obviously not happy with Mom for taking this photo
not sure if it's safe for this many teens to be in one boat...
Enjoy the rest of your summer. I intend to!
