What I Wore in June

Happy 4th of July!!!!! 

So June, I was better about taking pictures but not about posting.  Guess this summer it doesn't look like I will be doing both.  Here is some highlights from the month of 'What I Wore'.










Some church outfits, some daily life outfits, some baseball/softball outfits! Sometimes it's messy...my hair, my house, life!

Currently 7/2

Where is this summer going?  Can't believe July is here already.  

Softball...Hannah had her last softball game for the season last week. 



Baseball...Ezra is almost done with baseball for the season, just a couple more games.  

What I Wore...Talking of baseball/softball, I got a fun shirt.  More on this weeks 'What I Wore' post.  I apparently have been remembering to take pictures but not posting them, so a month in review post coming.



Fun...Few of us got together to make some Summer Sanity Rollers.  It was nice to have an evening of relaxing adult conversation.  Plus make some much needed Summer Essential Oil Rollers!




 Closing out the week...Saturday night the sunset was beautiful.  Was a great way to end the week!

Well apparently life doesn't slow down in this old house, more like keeps getting crazier!!!!  It is 9:30 on a Wednesday night, normally this time during the school year I'm already in bed.  

This shirt pretty much continues to sum up my life right now...
Baseball/Softball!

Since I last posted here is a summary of our weeks.  

The 2 oldest had orthodontist appointments.  Looking like Ezra might be getting braces the end of the July! After that we had lunch and walked the pier since neither had done that.  Then headed to podiatry appointment for Hannah.  Poor thing inherited her daddy's flat feet. 


Hannah and I met up with friends from Washington on their way to Fargo for a wedding.  Nice relaxing day at Como Zoo, supper and just sitting on campus talking. 


Tried my first 'Grilled Rachel' very yummy!!!


 My hubby bought me a brush guard for my Suburban last week.  This Suburban might be old, but we have put many many miles on it, many family trips, and paid cash.


Friday we picked up Christian from work, then Ezra from Valley Fair where he performed with the band and headed towards Fargo for the weekend.


 Where Kezia got to wear the dress I made my niece Ashley over 15 years ago!


The kids got to play for hours with some friends.


Then back home for swimming lessons!


And more ball games!!!!!!  Not sure who is more tired, the kids or mom?!?!??!  

I am just so thankful that I am here and able to do all these things with the kids, making memories.  That is what summer break is about. 

Blessings

Currently 6/11

 Hold on tight, summer break has officially started at the Nelson house.  This week we have 3 baseball games, 2 softball games, 3 band practices, 3 days of basketball camp, Ezra has a band performance at Valley Fair, wedding in Fargo, what did I miss?!?!?!?  That is just the upcoming week, what about last week.  

Lunch with friends & Day Trip to Children's Museum


Zeke lost another tooth!


Ezra attended a 'Men's Retreat' in Alfred, ND
He got to enjoy some fishing, here he is holding a 36 inch Northern Pike!


Girls day running errands & lunch

Plus a couple baseball games and a softball game.

I'm enjoying not having to get everyone up for school, especially with our crazy schedule.  It also gives me a little time each morning to head outside before the craziness begins each day!!!!!

Christian and I also got to enjoy a mini date to Menards and supper Friday night, plus no kids Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday morning thanks for my mom! Mini dates are always good for a marriage.  

Praying you have a blessed week.  Follow us on Instragram for more adventures.

Currently 6/4

Hmmm where do I begin.  It's been awhile since I posted a 'Currently' but going to just jump right back in!  

Thankful...Time to do yard work yesterday in MUCH nicer weather.  

Worked a bit more on the new hosta bed by the door

Fruit Trees!
Still don't know what to do with the nut bushes.  This bed has be baffled on what to do with it!

Excited...Today is the kids last day of school for the year.  Not sure how is more excited them or me!!!!  


Planning...Attempting to work on a Summer Bucket List, Journals and Devotions for the kids this summer.  I'm working on having less screen time for us all, few day trips, baseball, softball, swimming lessons, etc.

Currently I'm half way through this book.  A lot of things I already do but I'm also realizing working from home means that kids see me on an electronic too often.  So this summer I'm attempting a few completely nonelectronic day with them! Cause life won't slow down, I have to set the speed!!!!

Here is to the start of summer vacation.  I have a few 'projects' for the summer but mostly try to make the most of our time together.  Cherishing these days I do have with the kids!

What I Wore in May

It has been a few months since I've done a 'What I Wore' post.  I know it seems silly but I like how it keeps me accountable to getting dressed as a stay/work at home mom.  I've actually done really good about getting fully dressed with how busy we have been.  Yet when I do these posts I tend to keep a bit more variety in my wardrobe.

Final Days of School

This morning I sit at the library and realizing how fast time flies:


  • Today is Kezia's last day of school

  • 9 days left of school for the other 3 kids
  • Months have gone by since I've blogged.  I am going to try to start blogging at least weekly again.
  • How important living your life as an example is!  Last couple weeks we have attended 2 funerals and amazing to see how their lives have impacted so many.  I want to leave a legacy behind showing people that I loved and cared for each of them.
