We celebrated two birthdays this week- Jacky turned three on Tuesday, and we had a dragon birthday party for him.Bowden turned seven yesterday. We brought a cake to school shaped like a seven and then went down to the desert for hours of Boomers fun. We also just finished the Camp's Work Weekend, had John staying with us while he visited Lisa, and had three different couples up visiting over the weekend. John left Wednesday, and we went down to Hemet to get Bowden a few goldfish for his birthday. Lucy "graduated" from preschool yesterday, and we have been straight out this week, and last week, too.
We're camping this weekend with more friends, and then next week?
Next week I am sleeping IN.

Happy birthday Jack!!!!
Happy birthday Bowden!!!
Happy operation get some rest, Sarah.

Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.
In September, we were gifted a wonderful stay at a fellow pastor's vacation home- a lovely little pink house with shells everywhere and two huge rooms just perfect for all of us.  We were just a walk away from the white sands and calm, clear ocean, and we spent more time than my pale and sand-hating husband understood, but it was just lovely.  I have pictures on my phone, but I only pulled out my big camera for these few on the first day.

It had a fenced yard for the dog, a golf cart to drive us the two blocks beachward and lots and lots of shells and quality family time.  This was the trip that we watched Knight Rider together, so that's notable.
