we have known "big emily" for 19 years. michael and i were her Young Life leaders.
i love how friendships happen.
i do not love that my emilie is taller than "big emily!"
{"big emily" isn't big at all. we've just called her that since our emilie was a baby}.

we love watching "big emily" be a mommy.
she is good at it.
 i have read my bible everyday for 6 months

God is cool, and His word is cool, 
and it's stirring me, and undoing me,
and that's good.

 3 chairs, 1bench, and table to go.
campfire, s'mores, and worship

I would like your family to come to my house. Your daughters can bake for me and sew me things. And your husband can fix up my nasty chairs. And your son can take my boys out and teach them how to be awesome. And you and I can go shopping and get pedicures. Ha! :)

I love backyard camping, unfortunately around here the nights can be a wee bit chilly.....leaving me with three Popsicles in the morning!

We've been riding bikes, playing, running through sprinklers, you name it. And celebrating my birthday this week-its been a full, wonderful week!

Love your summer fun list and that you are reading that Bible! I have never made it that far, but should try again. Good for you!
