The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases
His mercies never come to and end...

Coming Soon...

There's just something about how summer weather can put a kick into your step, at least it does for me.  After a long and cold winter and spring I am so very ready to get out of the house and change things up a bit.  What about you?

I recently bought the e-book "Watermelon and Fireflies" from Aunt Ruthie's Sugar Pie Farmhouse (love, love, love this blog!), and it gave me so many good summertime ideas for my family.  It was so much fun reading through this book (I actually had it printed up and put into a 3-ring binder so that I could look at it any time I wanted), and it got me so excited for summer!

Lately I've been in a bit of a slump due to my morning sickness, this has put quite a damper on the "fun mommy" I want to be for my kids this summer.  But now that I'm having more 'good' days I'm getting even more excited for the ideas I want to put into place during these next 3 months.

I'd love to hear what other women have planned for their families this summer too, what kind of special activities they'd like to do, get-aways for the day or weekend they plan on going on, kid-friendly play ideas in the out-of-doors, and family outings in your own home town.  How about you ladies, what kind of summer ideas do you have just waiting to be shared?

If you haven't yet subscribed by email to my blog, be sure to do so, that way you won't miss out on the Summertime Family Fun Series!  


  1. Sounds like fun! I can't wait to read all of the ideas out there as well. I just wrote a post about the summertime bible lessons I'm doing with my kiddos. Feel free to check it out if you want!

  2. We love to have picnics at parks, beach and in the backyard. Today we filled the wheel barrow full of water for mud cakes! My children also love to get dirty and help me garden. Our favorite thing about summer is simply being outside.. We plan alot of camping trips too!
