The kids love to have a fun activity surprise each day. One day I got dish soap, water, and bowls out.
While Mark went on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic, we had our very own exciting stay-cation - Just mommy and the kiddos.
We explored the Everglades.
The kids found lots of grasshoppers. I love how Job is getting as close as he can without the grasshopper jumping on him!
Of course, we saw lots of gators.
Our Everglades selfie.
We also visited the Gold Coast Railroad Museum.
I think one of our favorite trips was to the Science Museum in Fort Lauderdale.
The kids loved making clouds.
And the hurricane winds was a blast!
Gabe liked learning about the digestive system.

We traveled to Key West for a day to visit the aquarium there. They loved petting the sting rays and feeding them.
Gabe wanted to get as close to the sharks as he could. He loved watching them get fed.
The touch tank was a favorite, too.
I love Job's face in this pic!
We spent a morning swimming at the Mortensen's pool.
And, or course, we went to the beach for a morning.
There has been a lot of reading going on this past month.
A day at the water park with friends is great summer fun!
The kids just watched the Box Trolls and had to make their own boxes so they could be box trolls.
We celebrated Father's Day! My kids have the best daddy!
Jadyn had fun at her friends princess party.
They got their nails, hair, and make up done. She's absolutely beautiful!
Job got hand, foot and mouth disease and was not very happy about it.
And we just got back from a fun trip taking our youth group and JBCers to the Wilds in North Carolina. Here's our JBC crew!
JBC on the rock wall!
Mark and I had so much fun getting to know our friend Jocy better. She came as a sponsor, too and got to surprise her twin brother Javi who is working at the Wilds.
Javi and Mark playing an intense game of Ping-Pong.
We met up with our JBCers on Thursday to make sure they were ok and see what they were learning. MJ surprised me with my favorite candy bar. Jack saw me taking a selfie and had to get in, too! =)
Our JBC kiddos!
Our teens at Family Reunion.
Mj's cabin. The coolest part was that he got to room with his friend from PA who was at camp the same week! I'm so glad they got to be together!

So it's been a great, busy month! Time to get back into the school routine as we start tomorrow. I'm ready for some more normal schedule! =)
