Summer goodness and a Happy 14

DSC_0268DSC_0264DSC_0271DSC_0276DSC_0285DSC_0283We’ve spent the last few days soaking up this hot summer weather, as I’m sure many of you have. I don’t always like the heat, but lately I’ve been enjoying it immensely. I just love summer – being able to send the kids outdoors with ease and knowing they’ll (for the most part) stay happily busy for a good, long while.

We celebrated Hunter turning fourteen years old yesterday. We are so, so proud of him. What a gift he is to our family. My heart is so full it feels like it could burst, and there are only so many words and I never feel like any of them really do it justice. They don’t. If you’re a mom (or dad), you know.

We unpacked some really big boxes a few days ago. Of course, they promptly became a fort, which kept the kids occupied most of the afternoon. I mentioned something about adding windows for a breeze. The girls got excited at the idea. Knowing they might need a little help, Hunter quickly grabbed the scissors and spent the next half hour or so cutting out windows.

Did I mention how blessed we are by him?  I can’t wait to see what the next fourteen years bring.
