The cold rainy days ended just about the time that the heat wave came through, but praise God, we had a couple of beautiful weeks of mild sunny weather in between. So we spent lots of time in the back yard blowing bubbles, smelling flowers, reading the bible together, and soaking up the rays. Speaking of which, I'm pretty much desperate for a tan. I used to be really picky about tan lines and all of that jazz, but now I'll take any kind of crazy farmer tan I can get! It's funny how priorities change {for the better} once kids enter the picture. Silas gets all kinds of compliments on his naturally dark, beautiful complexion. Lucky guy! He also has these mysterious muddy blue eyes that seem to be flirting with the idea of turning brown. I can't wait to see what they decide to do.

On another note, upstate New York has beautiful foliage in the summer. Just in our own yard we have a big variety of blooming plants and shrubs and even a tree that was covered with flowers for a few days. It's hard to imagine that in a matter of time everything will be covered in a blanket of snow again for months on end. But that's pretty too, so we'll look forward to it and make the best of it.

The verse that really stuck out to me on this particular day {as pictured above} was Psalm 56:8: "You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in your book?" Just a reminder that our God cares for us in a way that's more personal than I {and maybe the rest of us} stop to consider most days. And another timely reminder that He's always with us, even us crazy Army families who are always on the move- our next adventure starts in about two weeks when we go to Virginia for a couple of months. But until that gets here we're doing our best to weather the heat wave {with no AC} and enjoy the life and home that we've been blessed with here!
