Summer Begins

I have all of my flowers planted and boy are they taking off!   

This is the second year that there has been a groundhog living in our neighbors yard.  He likes to peek through the fence at as.  Thankfully there is to much activity over here and he doesn't venture into our yard often.    I haven't seen babies yet, but last year they were the cutest little things. 

The first grade classes put on a play the last day of school.  Grandma Mouse was ready for the start of the play.  It was really, really cute. 

One the last day of school all of the kids had balloons to release for a summer countdown.  A card was attached where the each kid wrote their favorite scripture.   Their hope is that once the card is found it will be mailed back to school so they can see how far their balloon went. 

Chuck is on vacation this week and we used the weekend to get started on some projects.  Our mailbox has been hit I don't know how many times by people backing out of the drive across the street from us.  It isn't the ones who live there it is their company.  The annoying things is that we watch them do it and only once has anyone stopped.  It was never hit hard enough to knock it over but enough to move the post and damage the mailbox.  Annoying for sure!  Since the post needed to be reset I took the opportunity to stain the post. 

I also spent time puttering on the back porch. 

I don't know about you but I am ready the summer fun to begin! 

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!


  1. Too cute you capturde Mr. Groundhog peeking through the fence!!! Your Grandma Mouse is a cutie too. =)

    We just got home and learned we've had a lot of rain ~ which was good for our flowers and garden too.

    Good job on staining your mailbox post! (Maybe you should consider painting it hunter orange or flashing neon...) ha ha

    Have a lovely week!

  2. Ha...using my hubby's new laptop and saw capture had no "d".....clicked on it to add a "d" but guess I put it in the wrong place! Must need some coffee. :-)

  3. Love Mr. Groundhog. How cute! Grandma mouse is adorable. I am sure the play was very cute. Love the idea of releasing the balloons with their favorite scripture. What a cool idea. You never know how one little gesture like that could impact someones life. Have a good week!

  4. Great pictures! We are ready for summer fun here too. Enjoy your day and God bless.
