Our sweet colicky Pip usually has rough late afternoons. This particular day, she wanted her face right up next to mine. It was the only thing that made her stop screaming. Then, she fell asleep. Praise Jesus, the child fell asleep. But, how do you cook dinner like that?

Our days have been filled with play dates, long summer days of playing outside, not much of a schedule, and staying outside with Daddy until dusk.
Mekonen and his Ethiopian buddy Luke have played together so much this summer. We are so thankful to be just down the road from them. They run around doing boy stuff all day long. Super cute.
Yard time fun with friends. The kids had a blast this month with this slip n' slide from Uncle Mike and Aunt Linda Spencer. Meko's buddy Jack joined in on the fun.
We also have our first bee hive. It's called a nuc and houses a starter colony of honey bees. We won't have honey until next year, but I sure am looking forward to that crunchy homegrown honey. I hear it's good for seasonal allergies so I'm hoping that's true! Mekonen and Evie are begging Daddy for kid bee suits so they can take care of them. :)
When your kids land anywhere, at any time, and pass out asleep, you know it's summer.
