Thank Heavens that summer is just about over- my least favorite season! Maybe if we lived in the North somewhere, I would have different feelings- but here in the South it is just too doggone HOT!!! The past 2 weeks have had highs in the high 80s maybe up to 91 and I feel like this is as good as it gets for summer in the South---and I wonder if next week will start a sweep of 100+ degrees days????!!!! We have taken advantage of the moderate weather and played some outside, at the zoo, etc. Ben got his first black eye at the zoo last week and he's all green and bruised now! (He ran into his friend in the fountains- she bounced and he didn't!)
This week we begin studying ancient Egypt and we're all excited about it! Also this week we kick off our Operation Christmas Child season with lots of hard work and a huge payoff come Collection Week. Please remember to make your shoeboxes this year! And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, go to http://www.samaritanspurse.org/ to find out how you can change the life of a child with just a shoebox!
Well, I'm sorry that I don't have anything terribly exciting to share with you, but we Cains have been laying pretty low lately! Hopefully next post I'll have something nice and meaty to share! Be blessed!
