a cold, refreshing glass of lemonade

{*updated* to fix the rotation of the photos issue}

“Trust in the Lord, and do good;
    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
 Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him, and he will act.
 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
    and your justice as the noonday.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
    over the man who carries out evil devices!”

Psalm 37:3-7

life these days has been busy and exhausting and overwhelming. i’ve hit my third trimester and all of a sudden i’m tired again. i’ve kept busy but i still feel like i’m swimming in to-do lists. some days i feel like a horrible mother: this toddler raising business is NO.JOKE.  and can we talk about how freaking hot it’s been?! but we’ve had some beautiful times in the last couple of weeks.

little moments of fresh, cold, delicious lemonade made with the lemons we’ve been given.

like our anniversary date where we got ice cream at Penny’s truck downtown:

gah, i can’t get over how cute she is! stop growing child!

R_2016-08-23 17.35

life multiple days of those boots in a row… oh and watering our bikes seems like a good idea too: R_2016-08-24 17.03  like getting a hair cut! for me AND the little miss!

it was a little sad to say good bye to some of her beautiful baby hair…but there is SO-much-less-tangles and screaming! she was so brave and such a good girl sitting as still as she could. she had 3 inches cut off!

R_2016-08-25 11.02 mom, stop taking pictures!”

like going peach picking.

(with visions of peach salsa dancing in our heads): R_2016-08-25 16.07   2016-08-25 16.13.35 she was very skilled at pointing out THE EXACT peach we should pick… lol 2016-08-25 16.13.41   we picked 21 pounds in like 15 minutes. (you guys, we made 24 cans of peach salsa out of about ten pounds of peaches… we still have 10 pounds to use up! ah! or figure out how to freeze!)

like opening the psalms. sometimes a psalm is exactly like a glass of lemonade. psalm 37 has been on  repeat these days and weeks as well. i just keep going back to it and reading it over and over. do you know how the psalm starts?

it starts with “fret not yourself…” it actually says that a couple times.  then it goes on over and over with promises that if you trust in the Lord, delight in Him, be still, take refuge, wait for the Lord…

HE WILL ACT. He will do things. He will be steadfast. He will uphold our hands, He will provide… He is the salvation, the stronghold, the deliverer.

so many good promises. Such beautiful and refreshing lemonade. go ahead, you can go read the whole psalm for yourself a few times now. there’s nothing quite like a big glass of cold lemonade on a hot day, am i right?

maybe i should try peach lemonade…

life lately

life around here lately has been crazy. well, it seems crazy. but i guess if i really start to think about it, i’ve really only been feeding the baby and TRYING to get her to take her naps. she’s teething i think at the moment because there’s LOTS of drool, LOTS of fussy and LOTS of gumming fingers. oh man!

it’s amazing how Husbuddy will come home from work and ask me what i did during the day and sometimes, honestly, all i can say is ” i kept your daughter fed and alive.” eieie.

every morning i wake up with a list of “to-dos” and it can be really depressing to think of the list at the end of the day and not be able to check one thing off! oh man, how did my mother raise FOUR of these little stinkers?! it’s ALL worth it though when she smiles and giggles at me, which is all the time!  i know she just wants to be near me all the time because she loves me and that’s worth not getting things done and living a little bit of a crazy life right now. it’s only for a season. i keep telling Husbuddy, she’ll be over this and on to the next thing before we know it!

in the mean time, here are a couple of pictures of what we’ve been up to recently:

working with daddy

Sophia helping daddy work.

at church

hanging out in daddy’s office at church {yup, this happens a lot}

daddy and me

cuddles with daddy are her favorite.

smiling walk

riding in the jogging stroller is so much fun! {um, no, momma isn’t jogging yet but its perfect for walks!}


and getting worn out after walks is just so darn cute. and that hat. that hat is so darn cute on that little head!

momma and me

practicing our smiles at starbucks half price frap happy hour. woot! it was even one of the first really hot days here in Lancaster!

daddy and sophia

and lunch dates with daddy are the best.

really, i guess we’ve been trying to get outside and enjoy the spring weather. we’ve also been trying to enjoy time with a busy daddy as much as possible. life is good! even if it’s crazy!

so what about you? have you been able to get out and enjoy the nice spring weather? has your life been crazy too with end-of-the-school- year things?
