In spite of the fact that Halloween decor is in absolutely every store, PSL’s are being cranked out left and right at Starbucks, and that I enjoyed the tastiest slices slice of homemade apple crisp last night😜, summer ain’t over yet!!!
So whether you plan on hitting up the pool over this holiday weekend, or if you’re like me and living in a place that hasn’t cooled down quite yet, these 5 pool time essentials are for you!
Let’s make the most out of these final summer days!
It wasn’t the party we might have previously envisioned, and the circumstances were nothing we would have desired.
We weren’t at a restaurant of your choice. We weren’t shaking our heads as you pretended to scan the menu as if you’d actually try something different for a change.
We weren’t having a family game night, talking trash to one another as the cards fell across the table. We weren’t teasing lovingly commending your persistence even though you have a knack for coming in last place.
We weren’t even at your house because you’re not there. You’re not there and I know that’s the birthday wish that supersedes them all.
But you are here with us, which is a blessing in itself.
You’re here after that alarming text I received on the afternoon of April 4th.
Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.
All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!
It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Momentsto help illustrate what this day is truly all about.
