Our week in pictures...

I have been a total blog excuses but, it is summer and we are having too much fun to slow down.  This time last summer I couldn't keep up with the kids so this summer I am running on overdrive trying to have as much fun as we can drink in.

My sis in law, Trudy gave me a kick in the pants and said I needed to update so here you are my sweet sister.

Here is our week in review.

We have had some mad English cheerleaders (obviously they weren't cheering loud enough!)

My volunteers have been working overtime to get all the letters out and collect donations for the Voices for Vera, adoption fundraiser we are holding July 19th at Kaw Prairie Community church for our dear friends who are adopting sweet little Vera from China. Click on the link to donate to their adoption!

Aidan attended Heartland day camp at our church last week and had a blast horseback riding, doing archery and learning about Jesus.
The girls are in extended school year, three mornings a week.  Having fun with their Ms. Juanita and Ms. Brenda.

Then they are going every afternoon to communication camp for two weeks.  This is through the speech and language department at the University of Kansas.  They are having the time of their lives!  I seriously couldn't pull Alayna away from her leader at pick up yesterday.  Instead Kaitlin had to walk Alayna to the car and put her in!

Dariya is singing the camp song, "You've got a friend in me!"

While the girls are at camp, Aidan and I (Grace and Rayne) have been taking in some of the sights of Lawrence and the University of Kansas.

We picked up a little culture at the art museum.

Played around at the Natural history museum.

Went swimming and had ice cream, more than once.  Shh, don't tell the girls!

Overall, we are having a fabulous summer and I couldn't be more thankful for hanging out and enjoying my kids.

Looks like you're having a great start to summer!

Can I ask, how did you center the picture for your blog header? I've been trying various codes but nothing is working. Any advice?
