Memories of Summertime

Ahh, well, we've got another foot of snow, Wisconsinites, but that can't stop us from thinking summeryish. I should like to know what your favorite memory of last summer is (you can leave it in your comment. :))

If you'd like to answer these three questions too, I'd enjoy the knowledge of whatever your answers are. :)

1. Did you add anything (that is especially cool) to your hopechest last year?

2. Did you venture into another state or go on vacation last year?

3. Has God done something wonderful in your life that you'd like to share? (A testimony about this  year will do just as well...if you'd like to share...)

I'm lookin' forward to it!

I think my favorite memory was...either the Rodeo with my cousins in Montana, or the three girls "trying" to go to sleep in the camper in Montana. The Rodeo was during the Montana Fair, so we walked around and ate junk food and thought about rides...and one of my cousins actually RODE in the rodeo. (A Bull.)

As for my hopechest: Yes. I added one of my favorite books. "Freckles," by Gene Stratton Porter.

We ventured into SEVERAL states last year, including Montana.

As for a testimony: There are SO many that I could tell. I guess I could start with tonight's! My brother Isaac just left the house to go get stitches under his right eye. Thank God that the shovel didn't hit IN his eye... I'm sure He'd like your prayers as stitches aren't the most wonderful things are far as feeling goes..

1. It's been fun stitching up embroidered dish towels...and crocheting crooked washcloths. My hope chest is now full.

2. We stayed put all summer, but our most favorite family members traveled up from Texas to be with us. That was the time I saved Bethany from drowning...the time we laughed so hard every evening...the time we went out to Yesterday's Diner and teased the waitress about her accent. (I didn't, I mean. I just drank my delicious root beer float in silence.)

3. A rough day yesterday...a really rough day. And I prayed for a blessing to make it through that day. God granted it to me. He's so good like that.

I'm dreaming of summertime, too! :)

1. Did you add anything (that is especially cool) to your hopechest last year? I don't have a hopechest...I do have things I'm saving, but I don't have any special place to put them. :/

2. Did you venture into another state or go on vacation last year? Amelia Island, Florida! It was wonderful. :)

3. Has God done something wonderful in your life that you'd like to share? He has answered so many prayers in my life this past year. :)

2. Last year our Youth Group leaders took us to Ricketts Glen! We stayed at my cousin's Grandma's Lodge. Its a 3 story building, has an inground swimming pool, and up in the mountains. Only like 2 hours away but it was a blast =)

3. God blesses me everyday!
