10 on the 10th: Summer Edition

10 Jun

I love summertime.  So today I’m joining Meredith for 10 on the 10th Summer Edition.  Here’s what I’m looking forward to:

  1. VBS is next week.  Vacation Bible School is one of my favorite memories from childhood.  I’m so glad I get to share it with my kids.
  2. We head to youth camp around the end of the month.  Love this.
  3. I love going to the summer Farmer’s Market.  There’s something about red, ripe tomatoes, summer squash, and fresh green onions…oh my.
  4. Sun-kissed kids that run through my house smelling like a mixture of fresh air, puppy, and sunscreen make me happy.
  5. Drinking coffee from my “summer” mug:
  6. Wearing flip flops, sandals and painted toenails.
  7. We enjoy going to the movies with our kids during the summer months.  We’re seeing Shrek tonight and counting the days until Toy Story 3 makes its debut.
  8. Grilling, grilling, grilling…my absolute favorite way to cook (well, watch Chris cook…)
  9. Sami and I are trying to cook up a way for my family to come visit her (and Frank) this summer at the beach.
  10. I’ll be brewing a pitcher of Heavenly tea this week.  You REALLY should try some.

So what are you looking forward to?

I’m joining Gretchen (whose Gladitude post spoke to me):

  • School is almost out…counting today, we have two days left.  I love the end of school because I love the beginning of school.  I love the anticipation and planning for the next year…and summertime is FUN.
  • I feel better.  My health overhaul is working and I’m starting to see and feel the results.  I’m thankful that my family has not rebelled at the food I’ve been serving them…My husband has even joined me this week.
  • I drove somewhere new yesterday.  That’s always a big deal for me.
  • I cut my own bangs and they’re not too bad.  It’s almost time for a trim but I’m leery of trying again.  I think it may have been a “first time’s a charm” kind of thing.
  • Our sweet friends had a baby boy last week.   I love babies and I can’t wait to meet him.
  • The internet has been spotty around here.  Apparently, our internet company is having statewide issues, so I’m glad it’s working today.
  • After having a day like Alexander on Monday, I’m grateful for new mercies and that the Lord forgives when I whine and complain…which happens more often then I want to admit.
  • I have my very own Jillian Michaels (except a lot nicer and not nearly as yell-y).  Plus, she’s family and I love her.
  • This Friday we are having a Greek feast to finish out our school year and the kids have made their own Olympic events.  I really hope they don’t ask me to run a marathon…

Thanks for stopping by, friends.
