First days of summer...........

Oh how I love the first days of summer! Last Tuesday was the last day of school for my youngest son, Hayden. I had to work that day, but I asked my boss if I could come into the office a little late so I would have time to make pancakes and see him off to school.
It was fun sitting and having breakfast together. He was pretty happy that this was the last day of school!
I went to work and he rode his bike to school. School got out at 12:30 that day. I told Hayden that he could invite a few friends over to hang out and spend the night.
When I got home from work I found them all in the pool.
When they got home from school Eric was home and they got a big metal bin and burned all their homework!
It's so fun to know that summer's here and they have three whole months until school starts again!
Later I found them just hanging out and talking on the trampoline.
The next morning I got up and took my usual 6:00 am walk with my neighbor, Shelly. Oops, you can see a piece of my pajama fabric poking out near my shoe. I always just throw my sweats on over my jammies! It's so fun to walk in the summer when it is warmer and it's light outside!
When I got home from my walk I snapped these pictures.
They slept under the stars on the trampoline all night!
What fun memories they have created!
I enjoyed my morning coffee and my devotional time with the Lord out on the front porch.
It looks like the blue sky is trying to poke through! Maybe it will be a sunny day! We have had very typical Oregon June weather this year, mostly overcast. I am so ready for the sun to shine!
Oh how I love my mornings in the summer on my porch with the Lord!
Later Hayden and I went out for a delicious breakfast!
Oh, how I love summer!

I hope you have a very good day!

P.S. Grayson and his buddy's got home safe from their trip last night and they sure had a great time! I'm so thankful!

What a blessing! If only we could all embrace your ability to keep our children completely in our focus at all times. How do you do it all? You get the Supermom award from me dear friend! God Bless You!!!

I am now hungry. :o) Our girls and their friends loved the trampoline---it became the place for long conversations. How fun to burn all the homework...grand idea.

Sharon, Your day looks so fun and peaceful. You are such a good mother.

I'm still suffering from this head cold. Kelli told me Whitney had it for 3 weeks.

Will you please ask Eric if he wants to by beef? It's good and tasty. Love ya, Kathi ps 1/4 a beef is about 150 lbs and cost $2.25/lb plus .50/lb cut and wrap. A half beef is $2/lb.
