Summer, yay! Feels like summer, looks like summer, calendar says it should be summer...I think it is, finally.

(hopefully I'll share a great "after" one in August!)
Most importantly, I'm enjoying the space for reflection and sorting out the cacophony of thoughts whirling in my mind over the past couple of months. I've been needing quality time with the Lord to gain His perspective on my friend's death and how it has impacted her family, our little church, and myself; analyzing how this first high school year went in our homeschooling and getting God's wisdom on the areas we need to modify or improve; praying over our short and long-term goals for the last three years of SweetPea's home education; revisiting my own personal goals for the summer--in short, I need my cup refilled. He is so faithful, He will do it.

Monday starts VBS wherein I get to test-drive my writing efforts with a live class of wiggly 1st and 2nd graders! SweetPea will be my flannel graph assistant and I have a lovely lady helping me with crowd control. The sanctuary and main classrooms have been decorated with black plastic "space" with planets hung and the sun, moon, and stars providing the background for "The Power and Majesty of God." It's going to be a lot of fun--and hopefully, the kids will go home with a new sense of awe and wonder at this mighty God who has called us to be His own.
Thanking God for the meaning and beauty He's brought to my life!
