The weekend was way too busy for me, I'm ready to hibernate again for awhile and refresh! lol The weather was beautiful for picnics & grad parties but Wowza, do I melt in the heat!!! Air conditioning is obviously my natural habitat! Fun times were had by all and my daughter had a chance to kayak for the first time! She was wonderful, of course! :)
Our homeschool evaluations are today, so I'll be running around like a headless chicken making sure everything is perfect! Prayers are welcome! Thank you!!

Praying much JOY over you today!!!
