Summer Fun!

Summer is in full swing at our house. It's hard to believe we're nearing the end of June. The kids last day of school was June 3rd, which was followed up a couple days later by Bella's dance recital weekend and sending Bella off to Bible camp for the first time. She had a great time even though she was concerned she would be homesick. Last week we had a calmer week at home and managed to get to the aquatic center for the first time. We've had a lot of rain here in Iowa so we hadn't had a clear day when our schedule was free. As always the kids had a blast on the slides and in the lazy river.

This week we have VBS, which Bella & Luke are lovin! Seth attended the first evening, but I've kept him home nights 2 & 3. We'll try to go one more night, but it's a lot of craziness for him especially after a full day of therapy. And we're tryin' to not get him too maxed out right before we leave for our trip to CO.

Saturday we take off to travel out to CO to attend Adam's Camp - a special needs camp in the Winter Park area. We had the wonderful opportunity to experience this camp last year through God's orchestration and we're looking forward to attending again. Seth will have 5 days of intensive therapy, Bella & Luke will attend their sibling day camp program and Mike & I will have time together in the mountains. It's a great program designed to refresh the whole family.

Along with attending camp we're excited to have a chance to visit family and friends along the way in Colorado and Nebraska. We'll spend several days in Nebraska on the way back and have a chance to visit with extended family. And Bella & Luke are excited to be able to stay on in Nebraska for "Nana Camp" the week after the 4th of July. Hope you are all enjoying your summer and if we're coming your way soon we're lookin' forward to seeing you!
