Summertime Craziness

I can't believe that in just a few days/weeks the kids will be heading back to school.  Our summer has just flown by and we have been super busy! (And I even cut out a few activities that the kiddos would have liked to participate in.)  Here is a brief recap of our summer

Rebecca playing T-ball

Micah playing baseball in the minor league

It was family participation in the the Jace Race this year.  Rebecca and I did the mile and Nick and Micah ran the 5k.  Micah won 2nd place in his age division!

VBS at our church.  All three kiddos had a wonderful time.  Even Olivia got in on the action as I was one of the nurser attendants and so she thought that she was going to VBS every day too! :)

Summertime pool fun!

Picnic with some of our church friends.  5 families and lots of kiddos! :)

A trip to Kansas City with Nick's family.  We took some time and celebrated Aunt Tricia's birthday!  It was a big one. ;)

4th of July fun - Catch a frog for Micah and parade terror for Olivia (below).  I have no idea what she is so scared of...

The girls in some matching t-shirt nightgowns that I made for them.  They were just so cute I had to include them!

VBS at my parent's church.  A lot of the kid's school friends attend this church or just come and go to VBS here so it is always a great way to reconnect in the middle of the summer.

Micah on the right and Rebecca is 2nd from the left.
Bible Quiz at the Mahaska County Fair!  Our church put up a good team again this year and the kids had lot of fun!

 A day of fun at Adventureland.  (Kind of hard to get good pictures when everyone is going in different directions and then going really fast on the rides!)

A camping weekend that allowed at least one warm day so that we could enjoy the local beach.

 Seriously - Who can get this dirty just from a campground playground? :)

 Hanging out at the campground.

Seriously - that was just June and July.  August has already had lots of garden produce (and more to come!), a double birthday party (Micah and Rebecca both have August birthdays) and the start of school.  That all happens before the 20th!  Summer has been good, but it will be nice to return the routine of the school year!
