Happy Summer!

I hope everyone is enjoying all of the wonderful sights, smells, and sounds of summer! I thought I would pop in quick and say hello in between bike rides, baseball, berry picking and birthdays to share what I have been up to.
This is my newest folk-art painting, “Colorful Family”. I completed this fun piece last week. It was created on a recycled drawer front in acrylic paint. I listed this colorful chicken family painting last Thursday in my Etsy shop and 2 days later it sold! I wish everything flew out of the shop that fast. I have 2 more drawer fronts I want to paint on, hopefully I can find some time to work on them. I also have 3 beautiful vintage frames to fix and fill and I have started some Halloween themed drawings. I have a lot of new ideas I just hope I can make some time to work on them.

Noah finished second grade last week. I am excited and sad all at the same time. He did amazing this year. Every time he brought home a report card I didn’t think it could be any better, but every time it was. I am so proud of him. He did not only blossom academically but socially as well. I am so excited to have him home with me this summer. We have a lot of fun things planned, Boy Scout camp, biking, swimming, baseball, library, vacation, golf camp, community theatre.

Part of me is a little sad though that the year is over. Noah had a wonderful teacher this year. She not only was an amazing teacher but she really believed in and encouraged Noah. She is one of those teachers that we will always remember, he was very lucky to have her. She made all of her students an end of the year gift, a DVD slide show set to music of pictures from the school year. It is a precious gift.

We celebrated Abbey’s fourth birthday on the 17th, I can’t believe she turned 4. Abbey wanted a Fairy bike for her birthday and a Hello Kitty bike helmet. She looks so cute riding around on it. I can’t believe my baby is already 4!

Yesterday we went to a local orchard to pick berries and cherries.

They are so sweet and yummy. Abigail was covered in cherry juice, I think she ate more than she put in her bucket. She even had some on her back. It looked like she rolled around in them.

It's summer we can't go anywhere without getting ICE CREAM!

Have a great Tuesday!
