Last day of flag football was on Thursday. The coach asked the parents to join. I was the only one to do so. It took me a bit to convince the boys that I could throw and catch. It was great fun to get hot and sweaty with my boys.

Max got to skip out of workbooks for the last day of school and go flying with Grandpa.

Red Robin was the celebration meal for the last day of school. We played 10 rounds of telephone around the table.

We enjoyed a beautiful Friday night at the lake. We were able to put out the raft.

First job

Titus has his first paying summer job. I’m so proud of him and he did a great job.

Jack quote

I came upon this in the garage. Mind you, Jack and Max are NEVER this organized.

”we smash rocks…with safety glasses…to see what’s in them”

There was a big pause with one eyebrow raised when he said, ”with safety glasses.”

I laughed.

Life with boys is anything but dull.


This Sunday we will be studying the book of Jonah as we work our way through the whole Bible. The kids were doodling as I read the whole story.
