SAC: Veggie Chips

Summer Adventure Challenge: Make Homemade Chips
oh yes. We made them with vegetables.

 Cucumbers in fact. They weren't that good. But that's alright. ;) We had fun.

 But they looked pretty!

SAC: Birdwatching and Frozen Yogurt

 We decided to do two in one day! so Summer Adventure Challenge: Get Frozen Yogurt Downtown

SAC: Writing Letters

Summer Adventure Challenge #44: Write a Letter to a Prisoner for Jesus
This was by far my favorite challenge so far. As someone who wants to go overseas, this was very special to me.

SAC: Memorizing Psalm 139

Summer Adventure Challenge #25: Memorize Psalm 139

There was a time in Tampa when a tropical storm hit us while we were on the road. Nathanael was so nervous. To calm him down, I decided to make him listen to me recite Psalm 139. I think it worked!

This was one of my favorite challenges. It really didn't take that long and it was SO worth it.

SAC: Seashells

Summer Adventure Challenge #14: Hunt for Seashells on the Beach
Gulf of Mexico, baby!

 I'm not sure if Nathanael was as into it as I was but we all got sunburned! Which obviously means we had a good time. ;)

Lovin this...

SAC: Painting Nails

This is one Nathanael opted out on. ;)

 We rarely get to hang out with our cousin, Ashlyn so when we do we make the most of it!

 They look lovely, ladies!

SAC: Fairy House

SAC: Fairy House

Today Nathanael attempted our Summer Adventure Challenge #10: Build a fairy house

I’m glad he actually got into it. We had so much fun trying to figure out what pieces of nature would be best for our fairy’s little home.

We started with a glass salsa jar as the basic structure:

…and then dug it into the garden:

We then proceeded to add a bed and an archway (out of a weed no less), and a walkway. It may be pretty tiny but I think it would make a very nice B&B for a weary pixie on her way to bigger and better adventures.
