Summer Stuff

I painted Molly’s bed and side table. Wish I had a before photo, but I don’t. The side table was black and the bed was dark brown. We’ve ordered a Tye-dyed comforter that Molly picked out for her bed. It was not my first or second or one hundred second choice, BUT she only has a handful of years in my house, so I let her choose. I’ll make it into an aesthetically pleasing guest room one day!
Ruby and Molly had friends over to tye-dye and bake together. And tic-tok, of course. This summer is definitely different and a bit slower paced, but we are making the best of it.
Mack walks around with AirPods in his ear. He sleeps really late these days…he could be growing again! Or maybe his body has to work harder than usual to carry around all that hair he insists on having. I don’t know for sure, but I don’t usually wake sleeping children, no matter their age.

Overall, the summer is going well. We had crawl space work done. We had to get a new upstairs A/C unit. The kids have gotten lots of rest. We’ve had lots of deep discussions about current events. There are peaceful protests and violent riots around the country. Race relations, as a whole, are in bad shape.

The Covid-19 numbers are rising in North Carolina, so Governor Cooper decided to mandate mask wearing in all public places where you cannot keep six feet distance. We will see if it helps the numbers. I’m so over all of it but you can’t just ignore it all—it’s something to consider no matter what you’re doing! I’m hoping the increase will actually help herd immunity to happen and maybe fall won’t be so bad. But I have to admit, as I am beginning to read through the book of Exodus, I can’t help but relate a bit better to the people of those days. Everyday the headlines get grimmer and grimmer. July has been told to come in, sit down and mind its own business, yet somehow I don’t think that’s going to be the case. We shall see.
