Sweet, Sweet Summertime!

It's been a while, and I've missed writing!  We had a fabulous school year, and survived four schools.  That's its own hooray!  : )
Tulsa Zoo last weekend : )

We've had some slower days, thankfully!  Today I took Clay to the DMV to get a replacement driver's license since he lost his wallet at a party on Saturday night. : O  Then home to lounge with my faves.  We made friendship bracelets, watched the end of Trolls and Daddy Daycare.  Sweet afternoon.  I'm making dinner, and Clay ran to the store for me to buy Oreos and chili sauce.  We're having a really good meatloaf that everyone loves, but it needs a little chili sauce on top before it bakes for the last 15 minutes!  .. and homemade Oreo ice cream! 

Last night we took our bats, balls, mitts, and some cones and had a free-for-all baseball game at our local park.  Then we went to Braum's for ice cream cones afterward.  It was a great night, and the kids want to go play baseball again!  So..I'm making homemade Oreo ice cream to have when we get back.  Yum!
Sweaty, but it's my sweet family!!

We're still riding our bikes daily in preparation for the JDRF Ride to Cure Type 1 Diabetes.  Ches, Clay, Mary Claire, and I are all riding October 5-8th in Amelia Island, Florida.  I was super excited, but I'm more nervous.  We have to meet our fundraising deadline by September the 7th, or we owe the balance.  To get to ride, we have to raise $8000 all together.  We're at about $4500.  Oh yeah, and now I've been told how windy it is!  I was just so happy it was going to be flat.  Now I know the wind currents are crazy!   

On the way back from Chick-Fil-A in Fayetteville!

I've been decorating for a few clients for donations to JDRF, and we have a fundraising car wash next Friday.  We're working on a t-shirt design so we can sell t-shirts too.  We usually do a Walk shirt every year, but since our large focus is on the Ride..we'll just have one for that! : )

Please pray for our sweet little friend, Baxden, and his amazing momma, Hilary!  They have some new information that he may have been misdiagnosed with glioblastoma.  It's potentially a life-changing bit of information.  Please pray with his parents that they correctly test, diagnose, and treat him!!
Lighting candles, praying for Bax.
Hope you are having a relaxing summer, enjoying the family God gave you, and each and every sweet day we are gifted.  Hugs!
