summer, summer, summertime.

we are certainly feeling quite summery around here.
the weather has been warm.
very, very warm to be exact.

we’ve been enjoying
ice cream in the afternoon 
(well let’s be honest, 
i can enjoy ice cream anytime, anywhere).

but it also has me thinking about how i can make it an intentional summer.
intentional for me and
intentional for the kids.

i’ll be striving to find that delicate balance 
between no structure and yet having structure.
because if you know me 
(and i mean really know me) 
you know i need structure. 
i love it. 
i’m lost without it. 

be sure to check out these two posts
(i’ve linked to them before)

my kids have been absolutely loving 
listening to some fun kids stations on pandora.
but i’d rather that instead of memorizing silly lyrics to 
a yo gabba gabba or shirley temple song, 
that we all fill our minds with the Word of God.  
my absolute favorite is seeds family worship music
which are NIV Bible verses put to music.

i have a couple of ideas brewing in my head
for our summer plans
and know that i need to have them in place 
when the first day of summer welcomes us.

don’t these pictures just scream summer?
okay summer, i hear you loud and clear.

For the word of God is living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword, 
it penetrates even to dividing 
soul and spirit, joints and marrow; 
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

so today, i’m linking up with
(and you should, too!)

be sure to check in later tonight 
for this month’s 
ten on ten button
(and you should, too!)

and then of course,
picture me imperfectly, tomorrow!
(and you should, too!)

1077. the teensy tiny yellow flowers found in our backyard
1078. special hand-painted objects from my children
1079. the continuous drip, drip, drip from our kitchen faucet that reminds me how wonderful it is not to have a drip, drip, drip sound all the time.
