We have been told over and over that we are experiencing an abnormally cool summer. It is fine with us…Daily temps between 92 and 102 are plenty warm!😃 We have learned to get out for fresh air and exercise in the morning and be in by 10 AM.
We continue to enjoy amazing sunsets…when the temps also go down some…we will go for an “evening stroll” (as Savanna calls it😊.)
We have had a few fires in the evening earlier in the summer, but lately it is too warm for fires.
There are numerous lakes around, the children have so enjoyed!
Armadillos are mostly nocturnal…so they come out usually in the evening…and only once some of us saw one rooting in the dirt. We see plenty of signs of them on our hikes, their rooting for grubs turns the soil over like it has been plowed. Last week we saw one just after dusk, we watched it for awhile, the children were delighted.
There was a grey Fox also…that fled as soon as we came too close. We also (almost) stumbled upon our first rattlesnake…it was laying very still along the trail we were walking when Guinevere almost stumbled on it.😩 I had really hoped it would be a long time before we saw one…it was an eastern Diamond back rattlesnake. I took a picture, but then deleted it.😌 Peter was very fascinated, and determined to get as close as possible…Savanna was terrified and panicked…Guinevere was fascinated, (as she always is with snakes.)
Still adjusting to many changes…the girls both have bouts of homesickness…there is nothing like the comfort of Daddy! He makes everything better.❤️
So does our Heavenly Father…never leaving nor forsaking us…Day by day He gives grace for every trial and brings beauty out of ashes…He makes everything better!❤️
