July is a busy month for us. We had cousins from PA visiting for a week around the 4th and have more cousins, aunts, uncles, and a very special great-great grandma coming to visit next week from…well…all over…for a family reunion. Our kids are loving it.
They’ve had water balloon fights and sprinkler runs, and lots of bathing suit time.
And someone to play horsey with.
Well, at least someone to tolerate them playing horsey.
And we’ve had helping hands to pull weeds and cut and water flowers.
Mr. Fix-It got our house washed. (If anyone that tells you vinyl siding is maintenance free don’t believe it for a second.) And there’s been painting. Lots of painting.
And in case you were wondering why anyone would bother coming to visit us if all we do is make them entertain our kids and clean our yard, there was also horseback riding, egg-gathering, antique shopping, farmers-marketing, concert-going, movie-watching, snack-eating, mall-walking, and a home-grown firework shows every night in the front yard before bed.
I’m excited that some of our visitors might even be writing guest posts for Walkin’ in High Cotton in the next week or so while I’m doing more shopping, eating, riding, visiting, shopping, and movie-watching with our next passel of family.
Because we love it when we have “our people” coming to visit, as the Ladybug likes to say.
