Summer Happenings: Books and things.

One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by. ~Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle









Ah, summer...it's hot out and the girls have been enjoying their time cooling off in their little pool. Occasionally I'll dip my feet in and enjoy a quick splash. Did I mention that it’s hot here?! Okay, I know its summer and that's to be expected. This summer, we have enjoyed peppers, cilantro and tomatoes from our garden. - I'm thinking about making fresh salsa soon.  Our days are filled with reading, reading and more reading! Our oldest completed her summer reading. She's enjoying her love for books. I'm so proud of her.

 We recently attended the Dr. Seuss spectacular event for the book, What Pet Should I Get? It's believed to have been written between 1958 and 1962. It was discovered by his widow while she was cleaning out his office shortly after his death in 1991 and then it was rediscovered in 2013. Of course we couldn't miss this event! We love reading and rhyming along with Dr. Seuss. 

Our little one turned 10 months this month. She's all over the place. Crawling, standing and teething! She now has her bottom two teeth. I'm sure she's relieved and she's not as fussy. These days she has so much to say. I'm really enjoying this time. 
My husband and our oldest daughter recently took a trip and went Crawdad fishing. She was so thrilled to spend some one on one time with her dad.
So far, our summer has treated us well. We're enjoying our days, baking, reading, playing games, attending events and cooling off in the pool. How are you spending your summer?
