You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, and training them
up in God’s fear, and minding the house, and making your household a church for
God, as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of
hosts. Charles Spurgeon
It's still HOT!!
We stayed cool with pellet ice to crunch on.
DH brings it home from work sometimes. We get so excited over little treats=).
The kids washed every available outside toy.
Emmi told me "thank you moma, this is the best day ever!"
I washed the van....which, I am sad to say, only happens a few times a year.
I usually bribe the college boy into washing the cars when he is home.
I even washed DH's car.
After everything was clean, we swam. Then checked out the garden.
Pretty pathetic-huh? Each child got 1 bite of carrot. That is a 12" tile. Who knows, maybe the seeds were for a small breed of carrots. Anyway we had plenty of squash (which we do not eat much), and a fair amount of cherry tomatoes. We had tons of watermelon, but they all split, now we have 1 nice one that survived, hopefully we will eat it next week. Looks like we need to rethink our garden stategies for next year.
