Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

July is here. And in full swing. Though this hasn’t been a particularly busy summer thus far.
In some ways, it’s going a little too slow. Waiting for our house to be built. Not really having our own yard to play in. The challenges are not impossible. But they are limiting.
We are making the most of our days, though. Trying to venture out as much as we can. As much as is realistic for this pregnant mama with five young children. Admittedly, it is just not that easy to be out and about. To pack up and go. That’s just not where we’re at right now in our family life. And sometimes that is frustrating. So, I try to surrender it to the Lord. Because this is my life. And all I can do is my best. And God willing, I am doing that. Mostly.
So, back to our summer days. Some have been lazy. Some have been a bit hazy (being pregnant and all). And some have been a little crazy ~ crazy good and crazy not-so-good =) But above all the good and not-so-good, our days are always blessed, because they are gifts from the Lord. And as I look upon these photos of my family, I am so very blessed by each of them …
Girls Day Out
at the American Girl Café (a real treat!)

How fancy, a heart-shaped ice cream sandwich and a chocolate butterfly! Almost too pretty to eat!

Even Kit got some dessert and pink lemonade. Oooh, la, la!

  1. Looks like your summer is humming along nicely. I'm praying you through it- I'm sure it isn't easy in your present circumstances. But you all look so cheerful in the pictures. 🙂

    The picture of you is just lovely!

  2. That looks like a wonderful summer! I can certainly understand that this summer might be a bit different for your family. It still looks and sounds like everyone is thriving and enjoying the summer.

    I've been thinking of you lately and wondering how your pregnancy is going? Looking forward to a pregnancy update sometime soon 🙂

  3. I saw your comment over at Evlogia, and it really touched me. I am sad to see her blog go, as well. So I wanted to pop over to your blog and say hi. Your family is just beautiful!

  4. your family truly is a beautiful gift, sarah. you are so blessed. and just remember…this is just a season. my kids are getting so big and trust me honey, it doesn't get easier. and they aren't nearly as cute at this stage! motherhood is never easy. it's that plain and simple. especially the life of a Christian mother.
    praying that you feel ok during these next hot months.
    my girl would love that cafe. there is one in L.A. but i don't really like to drive that far into the city. perhaps one day we will though. before the days of giving dessert to dolls is over. those days do pass so quickly.

    ps. that lil' firecracker is somethin' else, isn't she? she is so stinkin' cute! however, what sort of mischief befell her
    face?
