This week at VBS, the boys went out of this world, and entered a world of rockets, space ships, and aliens! They were reminded in 1 Peter 2: 11-12 that they are called, set apart, and that they are strangers (aliens) in this world. They learned that they should obey God, that they are never alone, that they should stand up for the truth, and to live out loud!

The Beach

So much to blog about...not enough time! Wow, nearly a month has gone by since we made a visit to the gulf coast. The boys got to spend several days with their Grammy and Papa and had a blast! They loved searching for shells and shark teeth!

Special Times with Micah

While Joshua was at day camp, Micah and I were able to spend the days together and also with a good friend and her little guy who is a buddy of Micah's! The boys played on the slip-and-slide, went to the park, went swimming, and more. Micah and I even went on a "date". We checked out a new park and then headed to Chick-fil-a for chicken minis...his favorite! It was a special week!

Summer Camp

Two weeks ago, Joshua had the opportunity to go to day camp. He had the time of his life. Everyday he was able to go swimming, play games, learn new things, try horse-back riding, play water games, and more. Multiple times during the week he asked if he could go back next year. I told him we would try our best! As someone who grew up going to summer camp and loving it, the thought of him loving summer camp as well brings a smile to my face!

Joshua loves jokes! Last week while at a friends house, he picked up this riddle book and proceeded to read through the whole thing, giggling all the way!

Sunflowers and Bees

These flowers bring such a smile to my face! They are now taller than Joshua! On a different note, I was thrilled to find bees yesterday morning when I went out to water! I can't remember seeing a single bee last year, and we had problems with pollination because of it. There were even more bees out this morning! Woohoo!

Which one is the original??

The boys were playing outside last night in the little pool. I was trying to get some fun pics of them. I asked for "normal faces" and this is what I got. :)
