Brothers making beautiful music together (because the youngest wails when he's not in close proximity to Mom and she needed to cook dinner so the family wouldn't starve)...PRICELESS!

He was nice enough to share one of the three paintings with Sabastian, who is still working on his. All three pictures relate to the ocean. Grandmom Fisher already requested that one of them be returned to her when its completed! She loves receiving the boys' artwork!
For Father's Day, I had the boys create their own cards for Dave. They each drew a picture on white drawing paper, and then I helped them mount it to the front of a card. Dave really liked how they turned out...I think they did a great job, too! Here is Jonathan working hard on his football themed card (of course!) and then with his finished product:
And here is Sabastian working on his football mascot themed card (of course!) and with his finished product (notice the new braces, too!):
And last, but not least, is Benjamin, working all of two minutes on his colorful card. He is not into coloring as much as I would like, but he enjoys using different colors from our large assortment of colored pencils. This card was from Benjamin and Nathaniel:
So as you can see, we are trying to be creative around here. Today Sabastian and I worked on a really special project which I will post about later. We had fun! (Jonathan is at camp this week.) I hope our attempts at being creative inspire you and yours to get out the colored pencils, crayons, or markers, and create!

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad.
Happy Father's Day, Pop Pop Christian and Pop Pop Fisher!
We love you!

After being accused on the first day of summer vacation (that would be the rough Monday) by my dear hubby that I was being "overbearing", I think the schedule has worked pretty well, especially in the morning. And, to show my dear hubby that I'm not "overbearing", it has flexed quite a bit depending on the day's activities. So, all in all, our summer is off to a good start. Next week is the first of several camp weeks, with Jonathan away all week--Sabastian follows the week after that. The little pool we got last summer went up yesterday...in perfect time for this mini heat wave we're having here in the East. Wherever you find yourself as you read this post, I hope you and yours are doing well and enjoying your season of life!
