Summer Recap before it snows here!

We have a free night which is a rarity around here these days. Plus, I'm severely under the weather with sore throat, achy, etc. so Matt is cooking. So I find myself on the couch and though it would finally be a good time to check everyone up!

The summer was gloriously slow. The older kids took tennis lessons a few days a week and also swim lessons most of the summer. So we were either at the tennis courts or at the pool which was a perfect way to spend the days.

A major major plus to our new house is that we can WALK to our community pool. One thing about me is that I get very snippy as a mom when getting everyone in the car. So having the luxury of a great double stroller where we'd thrown all our pool supplies and lunch and spend a few hours at the pool every day. glory.

We didnt take any vacations b/c Mojo started a new church as Asst. Pastor at Denver Pres. So, so great for us. But very busy! This new church will afford us the ability to take a large core group out when we plant and financially be at a better place when we plant too.

Abe turned 5!! We celebrated, of course, with a pool party!

Hanging out at our favorite ice cream shop!

 Nothing better than camping with friends!

Working on the house....

our hiking trips are never complete unless Frankie gets naked. yall, she wears me out!

Grandpa came to visit for Maggie's 7th!!!

Her girl classmates....3 of them have daddy's as pastors. Easiest party ever! Loved it!

AND! that brings us to the end of summer and beginning of school!

temporary trials

our lives have been up in the air lately. our job is up in the air, our living situation is up in the leaves me unsettled.
we put an offer on a short sale in december and still havent closed on it! we decided enough is enough and decided to rent it until the short sale closes. problem is, this house is a fixer upper and we obviously arent going to fix things up until its definitely ours.
so in may 1 we moved in....

after we finished unpacking completely, we promptly found out that the house is infested with bed bugs. it is unnerving to say the the past week we've REPACKED our entire house so that it can get treated and we live in limbo. all packed up while all the bugs die....

i cant tell you how much we love the back yard though. we eat all our meals outside in this glorious colorado weather. 


kids rom

living room

we have ALOT of work to do soon as we take care of the bug issue and as soon as we purchase this darn thing. we are learning patience, dealing with banks will do that to you. trusting God in his timing. but i can tell you this: We have never felt more *right* in an area of town before. this area is so US its ridiculous. even having people over, they say, oh this house is so you! it makes us happy to come home, to this street, to this area that we feel called too. It's a wonderful feeling to know your exactly where you need to be.

a glimpse of our days....

so these days are flying by and with instagram and facebook, blogging just feels like an internet overload of the morginskys. but i realize not all my close friends are on instagram and not everyone (just betsy) is on facebook.
so let me update you on our crazy two months that has passed.

sweet one

this one turned two!!! She is a firecracker! this girl, she keeps me on my toes. she climbs on the table, climbs on the kitchen counter and dumps all the vitamins, climbs onto the edge of the couch and jumps!, colors on the walls, colors on the floor...she doesnt flinch if i discipline her. she is crazy! she still nurses and still doesnt sleep through the night! holy moly she is a hand full! but she loves her mama like crazy and me holding her will solve any of her problems. she laughs alot with maggie and abe and thinks its hilarious when abraham slaps the water while they are in the bath. she is bold and brave and will do great things in the world! and, i have to brag, she really is very very smart! she can already point to a letter and name it correctly! she almost knows the whole alphabet! hello brillant!  she is so amazingly cute to boot!
