Goodbye Rest

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. "  -John Lubbock

We said goodbye to the days of rest this morning.  At 6:30am, the alarm, which we haven't heard since May, brings with it the schedules, homework, volleyball evening practices, Saturday morning games, Awana Wednesday nights, shorter days, and eventual cooler nights.

Summer was a true reminder this year of how good God has been to our family in the way of friendships.  So many of our days were filled with our friends.  I am so incredibly grateful to Him for it.

As I sit here during the 3 years old nap time in complete silence (school days for the big girls do give me that), I wanted to share a few of my favorite summer memories.

  1. Glad the kids had such a fun summer. I know our kids enjoyed the time we all spent together. Makes me ready for Thanksgiving.
