Summer is always a month of parties for us as a family, we had two smallish ones back to back, Father’s Day and the weekend afterward, and usually do something for the Fourth, this year being another birthday party in the country. It was lots of cooking, cleaning, decorating and getting the yard presentable going on over here for a few days, but I love it.
I love Father’s Day, probably more than Mother’s Day since the latter feels uncomfortable having the day be all about a job I feel I already am loved for ❤ . But I genuinely enjoy celebrating my husband on this day 😀 just makes me so proud of him and happy.
Our life would be impossible without him in every way.
We have another family party/get-together today, and thankfully the kids slept in after watching fireworks on our drive back from the big party last night. We all hunkered down on our wrap around couch to watch a peaceful firework/musical video on youtube – the kids loved it, and it felt so serene.
Our oldest requested I do one of my cookie cakes for him, and of course it had to be Jurassic Park!! Things are still all about the dinosaurs over here these days 😀 😉 I love making cakes and things homemade, and I love the designing process.
I love Summer… all the swimming, playing out in the sun, relaxed schedule… this is my daily uniform 😀
I still do a, “homeschool review day,” once a week 🙂 Because learning still seems important and it’s just a good opportunity to review things, especially math!
This is part of what we did this week:
We went over the symbolic meaning of Christian’s version, and I did explain that it didn’t mean simply, “problems,” but even deeper to signify problems coming from sin and shame, etc. Life still does have many problems after taking on Jesus Christ as your savior, but it’s interesting that His yoke and burden are also (in MANY ways), “easier, ” and “lighter,” than the world’s corrupt ways! It was a good, short lesson.
There’s even a song I sang that seemed to captivate them, that follows this verse. I can’t find it on youtube, but it is just so beautiful! Perfectly captures a short lesson on Pilgrim’s Progress!
AND… Yesterday was our 13 YEAR anniversary of being together! Yes, we got together and apparently our love sent sparks into the night 😛 I can’t believe it’s been that long… it feels like a blink of a an eye!
Happy late Fourth of July! We’re off to another adventure….
