After a month of reflecting on so many awesome things in my life, I am truly thankful. And I’d like to end my month of awesome sharing with you an awesome video by an awesome kid (president, that is). Please watch and find out what makes summer so awesome/ how to make someone else’s summer super awesome.
Advocacy for children (and Kid President’s awesome heart for giving). The most awesome!
My number one favorite thing to do is be silly. Whether it’s at home, with friends, or in public I love a good laugh. Will & I were put in charge of game night with the youth at church tonight and we decided rather than go the typical physical challenge game route we’d take a different approach.
We divided the youth into four groups and gave them songs to make up interpretative dances too… It was possibly one of the funniest things I’ve ever witnessed. We had boys dancing with a teddy bear to Barbara Ann. There was a very good solo rendition of It’s Gonna Be Me by N*Sync. We felt a lot of soul to Waterfalls by TLC. And (very reluctantly) we saw a surprisingly energetic interpretation of Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus. Classics.
And to make it even better we played a game afterwards where some of the kids shared funny/ embarrassing stories about themselves… Pure joy!
Laughing until your sides hurt. My favorite kind of awesome.
Will, Marie & I got to visit Meme and Papa this weekend in Jacksonville. It was such a fun weekend spending time with family! We went on a breakfast adventure with Papa, shopping with Meme, and then got to share stories of the present and past all together. I’m all about some quality time and our roadtrip was well worth it to see family that we love so dearly.
Quality time with quality people. So awesome!
I’m not working this summer so there’s a lot of room for me to be a lazy bum. Some days I choose that path for myself. Other days I find myself checking things off a list like a pro and being very productive. Today was one of those “get things done” days. I did two craft projects… two! I hemmed Will’s pants (I can do that?! Who knew!?). I fixed my dress that I ripped (I can also do that?!). I fixed my purse (so I fixed a lot of things that I had damaged…) AND I did all the laundry in the whole house. ALL of it is clean… This might be a first.
Small victories. Really awesome!
Today was my daddy’s birthday!
He’s awesome! (Happy birthday, dad!)
One of things I’ll miss most about Thomasville is my group of teacher friends. They are the most wonderful women to work with and share life with, and today I got to have lunch with them :) We laughed our heads off, swapped stories, and ate Savannah Moon… plus desserts! I have truly been inspired by these women and their willingness to share their classrooms with me. In my heart I’ll always be a Jergersaurus :)
Good company and tin roof pie. Indeed my lunch was awesome!
I got to go to the beach today :)
That’s it. And it was awesome.
