We went swimming with friends...

We took a moment away from our game night to take pictures 
of the beautiful sky that came after a thunderstorm.
Quentin took this one.

and had a game night with friends.

  2. That swimming picture, that is awesome!

    Tradesmans badges? What are these?

    1. They are Pilgrim's badges and I plan to talk more about it soon!

  3. I love Quentin's photo. Looks like you guys are having a lovely summer. We've been in the Greek islands this week, (Gerald Durrell's) Corfu & now (Captain Corelli's) Kefalonia. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. The Greek islands sounds wonderful!

  4. Goodness, Phyllis, you have been very busy this week! I love the trades man costumes - did you make them? And I will definitely be trying out your lung model. My children thank you in advance for giving them an excuse to eat sugar!

    1. No, we bought the costumes for the Renaissance Faire. They are quite welcome. :)

  5. The sky picture looks amazing. We also had a very pretty sunset once this week, but nothing like this. The fullness of your weeks never stops to amaze me.

  6. I'm so happy to see your summer moving along so nicely up there. That extra down time, making room for fun is so important. You always make things fun for your kids! Hope this week is going well :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
