Green Challenge!

So the kids were busy on their own with school assignments.

So then I had a few free moments. A rarity. And I wanted to play with my camera. And then I remembered a couple of years ago when my best friend Jeny offered a color challenge on her blog, and I thought that I would steal borrow her great idea here on LampPost.

Won't you accept my color challenge? This week's color: GREEN. The rules? Just these: go around your house and capture a few photos of some of your favorite things that match the color of the week. Post them, along with any accompanying stories on your own blog or Facebook or Flickr account or wherever. Then come back here and leave a comment with a link to share with us.

My plan is to have a new color challenge every Friday, until I run out of colors...or come up with a new game!

Go green!

So before one more month whizzes past me, I'm unloading on y'all. Here's what you missed:
*We started and finished a season of Upward basketball with Caleb and Gabe. (A quick aside: I can't say enough good things about the Upward program. Our beginner athletes had a great season pushing themselves to do their best, learning basketball fundamentals, and placing God at the center of it all. I'm already looking forward to next year's season.) We're so proud of our boys.
*We celebrated Lily's 5th year being a Fasnacht. What a privilege it is bein…
