Summer Is here!!!!!!

Really, I know it's been here for a loooonnngggg time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But we've had so much wish-washy weather that you wouldn't know it!!!!!!! Yesterday was so-so; Saturday was the same; Sunday it was soooo cool you would think it was spring or fall!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!! I've been doing lots of reading, writing and just hanging out!!!!!

And yesterday Colt brought out his girlfriend and her brothers Caleb(6) and Michael(9), and sis Tabetha(11).

Colt's girlfriend, Amber, is the oldest of 8 kids!

They swam with us and it was really fun!!!!! Tabetha helped me with diving, and she and I chased Michael around the pool and eventually caught him. We all wrestled with Colt and Amber. I carried Caleb around the pool and he asked what kind of bugs were in our storage shed and got scared from the "Dragon Horses"! We told him over and over again.......Dragon Flies, Horse Flies, and he said "NOOOOOOO DRAGON HORSES". LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He ate some of our apples from our apple tree...he called them juicy apples.

HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! He's sooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mom may have told you on her blog that I'm taking a summer Botany(Study of Plants) science class this summer. Well, on our first day we made "light huts". A seed needs three things to grow: Water(we water our plants in the Light Hut), Air, and Warmth(the light bulb gave off extra warmth and it reflected from the aluminum foil inside the "Hut". Well, I planted a Zinia........

It went from in here as a teeny weeny seed...

To a pretty little pink bloom. Pretty amazing, huh?

Wow! Botany proves God's beyond powerfulness over and over again. It's pretty AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Here's some advantages of summer:

Flip flop season!!!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sidewalk chalk

Pretty flowers



So whatcha doing this summer.....bloggers?


Love, Joy =D
