Chaos at Casa La Crazy
Oh my goodness I can’t believe I haven’t posted in almost a week! What a week it has been too. I am constantly amazed by my life and how blessed I am both as a mother and when it comes to friends!
I made it through what is normally a very rough week for me with minimal break down. I will not say I did not cry,because I did,however constantly being reminded of all the people that love me was enough to get me through it.
My friend Joy and her family came to visit from Oregon for the 4th! They were already going to be up here visiting family but they took the time out of their holiday to celebrate some with us. I haven’t seen Joy since Holly was about 6 months old. She was one of the first homeschooling moms I met when we lived in Portland,and she quickly became a great source of strength for me during many difficult times. All of our kids didn’t remember each other but that didn’t stop them from quickly rekindling the friendship. Her kids are have turned into awesome little people!
We also had my friend Charity and her family here as well as some new friends and family! All in all our 4th of July turned out pretty awesome. I am now just going to shut up and share the pictures with you!
There was the ever so popular slip n slide that Brandon’s stepmom got for us….
Why yes that is my boyfriend “testing out the waters” trust me I would’ve been on it too if it hadn’t been for this baby bump!
There was food and new friendships formed as well as old ones rekindled.
Heck there was even baby bunnies being caught….oh I haven’t told you about the baby bunnies..don’t worry I will fill ya’ll in next week.
There was even a little cuddle and laughter time…again thank you Joy for capturing this picture
Later on it was time for campfires and roasting marshmallows and of course S’mores!
Our friends Joe and Charity,another homeschooling family. You can see she exuberants joy and laughter,I love having her for a friend.No I’m not just saying that because she reads my blog either.
So I would say we pulled off successfully a nice 4th of July! Next year maybe we can do it again and invite even more friends!!! In fact here it is out there for all of you…next year 4th of July…our house!
