It’s the end of the first month of summer. It’s been a busy but enjoyable month which included Father’s Day, pool days, a visit to Lake Lure, play dates, athletic conditioning classes, a birthday, and a wedding. We still have another month and a half without school and I’m looking forward to discovering what else is in store during summer vacation. Without further ado, check out this month’s Four Somethings and feel free to link up your own over at HeatherGerwing.com.
My family gave me a pack of cute cat socks for my birthday last month and they are so adorable! They make me happy when I put them on and are very comfortable. I like wearing them with my slip-on canvas shoes.
I’ve been reading this devotional – Embraced by Lysa TerKeurst. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened it up, but it has been a great encouragement along with providing some conviction. I was well aware that my connection to God wasn’t as close as it could or should be, but seemed to lack the motivation to do anything about it. This book has been the kick in the rear I’ve needed to remember how our relationship can be and increased my desire to be more open and intentional with God.
My husband and I were blessed with an impromptu date night a week ago which we needed so much. We hadn’t gone out just the two of us since before Christmas, unless you count grocery shopping which I don’t. Some friends took our kids for the night and we went to dinner and a movie. It was nice to be able to relax together and do something that felt normal again. It reminded me that we need to be much more intentional in time together now that it’s safe to do so.
This could be considered cheating because “ahead” means tonight, but I say it still counts. Later in the day, we are headed out west to see family we haven’t seen in a year and a half or longer. I’m super excited! My parents, brother, sister-in-law, and nieces all live in Idaho so I am thrilled to be able to spend some time with them. We’ll get in too late to really visit but it’ll be nice just to finally be in the same place again. A few extended family members are planning to visit while we’re there which I’m also looking forward to.
That’s my month. I’d love to hear a highlight or two from your June! Write it in the comments section.
