Friday With Friends


Friday With Friends is hosted by Jennifer and is a time of  sharing with our blogging friends.  It’s always a fun time to open up and share among friends a little bit about ourselves.

Today’s topic as fall is rapidly approaching is to share a quick review of our summer. Our family didn’t do anything elaborate, mainly because in the deep south, it is SO hot!  It has been said that the summers in the south are a tiny bit like the harsh winters in the north because we are so often stick to the inside because it is too hot to be outside for long periods of time.

Our summer started right off with our middle son having surgery to have his gall bladder removed.  He absolutely refused to let us take any pictures!  But the surgery and recovery went very smoothly.

Children’s Church camp found myself and two of our sons spending a week at a local campground.  Me with a cabin full of girls, them loving the camp atmosphere filled with swimming, fun and of course Bible study.

Here is a shot of the girls from our cabin:

And our fearless counselors:

Summer found little league baseball ending for my youngest and Church softball season beginning for out two oldest sons.  Many hot, muggy evenings found us at the ball field, cheering our guys on:

A quick weekend to the beach was a summer highlight:

Then locally we enjoyed swimming in natural springs and spending time with the newest member of our family:

It doesn’t seem like we did very much, but apparently, we created some great memories this summer!


  1. Looks like a really fun summer for sure - didn't realize your son had surgery (too funny that he knew to let you know NO PICTURES....can you believe my girlfriend has already told me no pictures on my blog when we get back from our trip - well, no pictures of her!) Glad he recovered well to enjoy all the fun of summer:)

    Those pictures of the guys jumping off the rocks - still gets me! AHHH -

    So glad you joined us today:)
