I know I am super behind on posting here—we have been having lots of fun, busy with work and play (the week before last I deemed my “busiest week ever,” but it probably wasn’t and whatever the case; we made it through), plus I am definitely out of love with my camera (perhaps a new one soon . . .) and not sure about how much to keep putting into this blog.  ANYWAYS, here are some pics from today representative of our very favorite things about summer:  


we spent some time in the garden this morning


and when he was tired of that Joseph spent sometime on his bike

then we headed to the beach for the rest of the day—we met some friends and then Joseph found a buddy from school and they were inseparable for the rest of the day

If you know me, you know I love water, and I am so enjoying the fact that Joseph is loving the water as much as me right now.  We spend most of our time (when I am not working) seeking out swimming holes and so far have enjoyed a lake, pond, river, and a few pools ;-)  Every time Joseph swims he seems to learn so much.  Just about a month ago he wouldn’t go under water.  I basically made a game of yanking him under and he realized it wasn’t so bad.  As of today he will show anyone how he can “swim underwater.”  Not really swimming, but so cute.

This was a pretty typical non-work day for us ( I usually work three days a week in the summer).   I am planning on going through more photos and posting about our adventures so far this summer and we have plenty more to come.  Next week is CAMPING!  Happy summer y’all!
