Happy Friday to you! This week has been a bit of a blur for me. We had some highlights which you'll see below, and a few lowlights including (another?!) bat in the house and another trip to the vet with Miss Ivy. Everything else is really good. This is Steve's last weekend before teaching starts on Monday, so our summer mode is about to shift. We just found out that he'll be teaching FIVE courses this semester, which is pretty big for a part-time college professor :)
On Wednesday, our friends invited us out to the pool, and we happily obliged! It was the perfect, extra-hot day for swimming. Nolan is becoming quite the little fishie, and it's hard to get him out of the water. Ephraim still gets nervous around the pool, so I spent most of my time chasing him around the perimeter :) I loved getting to chat with three of my friends though! In the summer, we don't see each other nearly enough.
Yesterday, I shared this "Whatever is Lovely" free print that I designed. It's based on Philippians 4:7-9, which are a couple of my favorite verses. Feel free to print a copy for yourself! Eventually my living room gallery wall will get done! :)
If you missed Wednesday's post, this rhubarb cobbler may be the sweet (and a little sour) dessert that you're looking for!
Last Saturday we went blueberry picking for the first time, and we loved it!
A few of you asked for the recipe for blueberry zucchini bread. The recipe is here. It makes two loaves. If you want the berry version, add two cups of blueberries.
Yesterday, I mixed a cup of blueberries with a cup of fresh raspberries into some zucchini bread, and the flavor was amazing!
Also: the recipe works for muffins. Yesterday, my batch made one loaf of bread along with 18 muffins.
Thank you for all your nice comments about my high school photos post. Tomorrow is Steve's 10-year-reunion, and we're really excited for a night out visiting with his old friends!
Nolan figured out how to work my cell phone camera this week. I don't let my boys play with my phone, but I couldn't refuse when he sweetly asked if he could take some pictures. This one makes me smile because it's his low-to-the-ground view of his mommy :) He also wanted to take a photo of his red trike. And then, my favorite. . . he wanted to take a photo of his cut-up pizza because I'm always photographing my food. How adorable, right? :)
I hope you all have an awesome weekend!
