What?? It's been a week????

There are so many things to do during summer, one forgets to catch up so one can look back and remember what we did.

Meaning I haven't had time to blog.

Let me preface this by saying it is H-O-T here in Jersey.

And I don't have central air. And my husband is an HVAC contractor. And that's all I have to say about that.


Well, for the holiday weekend, we went to my sister's in PA. It was fantastic.

She has a pool.

I think this should be EVERYBODY'S reaction when in the pool. Elly did not stop looking like this the whole time she was in the pool. She woke up ready to swim, and had to be dragged out of the pool to go to bed. And eat.

I did make her get out of the pool to give her skin some rest. I told her her hands were too pruney and until they got drier, she had to stay out. Here she is trying to make the sun dry them super fast.

Look who is back from Israel!!!

Contemplating life. And reading on the iPad.

Elizzi, Elly & Tim waiting to go to the fireworks. And since the wait was too long, they made Tim give them rides.

AGAIN, this should be everybody's reaction to fireworks. Elly cheered, laughed, clapped her hands, loved, loved, loved the fireworks!! It was more fun watching her than watching the sky-show.

Since we live in NJ, and fireworks are illegal, and sparklers will get you a few years in jail, and PA sell fireworks in the supermarket... we came home from the big show, and had a show of our own. Samuel, Tim and Lance did a box's worth of their own, which lasted an hour. It was cool!

They spent all that time in Israel together, but it didn't make these 2 any less competitive on who gets the most comfortable couch. Neither was going to get off, so they both dealt with it. Cousins...

Samuel, going for an almost midnight swim.

Football catching.

We are still doing school. We didn't finish so that's that. Even when friends call to get together, the answer is " Did you finish your school work for today? Because whatever your answer is, is my answer." He doesn't like that answer.

And then there is the hard times of life. We just found out that my dad has Parkinsons.

We are still processing.

And we are still clinging to HIM.

Oh, man, that was such a fun post till you got the very end. I am so sorry. That will be an adjustment I'm sure.

But great pictures. That one of Elly in the pool ... and the one of Samuel in his nighttime swim. I love that. So neat.

I am glad you had such a great weekend. I have heard it is terrible, terrible hot all up the eastern seaboard. We are at 102 today. But we have air. So I will not complain one little smidge.

Stay cool. I heard if you put your feet in cold water it helps. Seriously. Maybe Ellie needs a small pool to play in. You could stick your feet in.

Loved this post up until the end. :( My mom has Parkinsons. She's in her 70s now and when I see her she seems so frail. It's hard to be 8 hours away. I want to be able to go visit on the weekends and I can't. God knows and has plans for our good though! Amen?

Beautiful to hear about your fun holiday... seriously...you can't even have sparklers???? That's crazy!
I can see Elly's joy beaming through the photos. :) How exciting for her to experience things for the first time.
SO sorry and sad to hear about your Dad. Praying for you all.
