To quote a favorite childhood read, “Summer brings us many things…”

On one of my walks I stopped to capture these lilies in bloom.

Speaking of flowers, isn’t this bouquet for a friend the most gorgeous ever?

One of our summer adventures was repeatedly losing electricity due to our house breaker flipping. We devised a temporary solution, but are still working on figuring out what is causing this.

Hosanna posing under some ferns while out on a walk with our helper. (The bonnet was her idea. She has her own unique sense of style!)

Meanwhile, Kathryn gets a picture next to this glorious rose bush.

Another adventure was Kathryn’s busted chin. She thought it was quite wonderful to go to the doctor, but the stitches part wasn’t so fun. 😦

6 stitches!

Thrilled to have those boogers taken out! This was a fun children’s play area at the pediatrician’s. Overall, she thought going to the doctor was exciting!

Rebekah read about characters in a favorite book eating a most idyllic breakfast: blueberry muffins, fresh raspberries, scrambled eggs, and freshly squeezed orange juice. It was a special morning when we were able to re-create this same breakfast. Well, all except the orange juice. 😉

Berries are available for only a few weeks in the summer, so these were special treats! (P.S. It wasn’t really cold, but Rebekah likes her warm, cozy gear!)

It worked out well that it happened to be 4th of July too!

Abby got to go to a teen camp this summer with Baptist church group.

A most joyous homecoming! These two could hardly do without each other.
