Summer is Zoomin' By...

I can relate to this rhino from the Brevard County Zoo. I just want to lay in the sun and snooze! ;)

Has anyone else noticed how quickly summer is zooming by? I am hanging on tight to it! There is the trick. I need to savor each moment instead of focusing on the rat race swirling around me! We really have six weeks left which is great, but I notice I am getting alot of phones calls about fall plans and find myself wondering if I will be ready to start up homeschooling again when the time comes. So, I am doing alot of praying about having motivation and joy in doing the Lord's will for our family!

The homeschool books are neatly lining the bookshelves. Tryout season for the kids has begun. Christian had soccer tryouts for a U12 Travel team. He made the team and starts practicing on Tuesday. Tyler has 3 weekly tryouts for a Premier Travel U15 Soccer League. In two weeks he will begin tryouts for the local High School's soccer team. Rachel is presently in summer dance and she has Hip Hop Competition team tryouts in 2 weeks. So you see, we are on vacation but things have a way of keeping you on your toes!

What are you doing this summer? Whatever it is, don't forget to smell the flowers and listen to the children laughing and notice the sun on your face!

"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture." Ps. 37:3

Here are some pictures from our trip to Florida. We were there for my sister's wedding but couldn't resist a side trip to the Brevard County Zoo. Here are some pics of both:

Tyler has quite a wing span! ;)

This picture kind of entertained me...everyone clearly had their own agenda!

It all about getting to feed the giraffes...we save it for last. It is our favorite part of the whole zoo. It is amazing to touch and feed these gentle giants!

Amazing, isn't he? The females stay far away but the males are curious, friendly and hungry!

Wedding time...

Here is the flower girl getting her first ever manicure. She is "suffering", can you tell? ;) How does a girl handle all that pampering!?

Here she is all dressed and ready to go! She's our little princess!

Here is her updo. The hairdresser was wonderful and let her pick her own favorite out of a big book of wedding options.

Yep, it's all about the hair! She had such fun! More pictures will soon be on there way to me of the actual wedding! I can't wait! :)

June Mid Month Knitting Project

Since the July Knit a Long has started I decided it's time to finally post the Mid June Knit a Long picture, LOL!! It was fun and challenging and I felt like it brought me up the next level in my knitting! I can't wait to see what the July Knit a Long will bring! :) I just joined a Bookmark Knit a Long and I will talk more about that later. Have a happy Sunday...

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.'" Ps. 122:1
