Day to Day Adventures

Summer 2010

When this summer started and I finished up the school year there were several things that happened. 

First once Michael graduated I felt like there was a huge weight lifted!  Not that Michael is a burden but it meant that I no longer was in charge of the education of my oldest.  It was a strange feeling because I have dedicated 13 years of my life to making sure he becomes the man that God wants him to be.  There is something bittersweet about this time. I am so proud of who he has become and yet it is difficult to watch as he spreads his wings for the next stage in his life.

The next thing that happened was I went to the doctor for some pain in my hip.  It was NO fun!  However, now on the other side of lots of Aleve & one wonderful cortizone shot I have a hip that works and I am able to for the most part do as I want to do.  I do know now that down the road I will be replacing this hip for a new one but thank goodness not now.

We borrowed my dad's tiller & got the garden turned over & the tomatoes put in--34 of them!  More of them than last year but hey I am crazy I admit it.

There are so many things I wanted to do this summer.  Projects, planning, peacefulness.  The main thing was I didn't want to go, do or get tied in to anything ALL summer.  Usually we are at the pool or gone on vacation for a while or making over the rental house.  This seemed to be the summer we could just be home. 

So we managed to have some of these moments.

I just wish we could have everyday be like these.
