Color Me Red, White, and Blue

The 4th of July, one of my favorite holidays, has passed, which means summer is about half over for us.

{Boo! Hiss! say the students…and teachers…in this house.}

We are determined to make the most of time.

Finishing projects.

Actively being lazy.

Laughing and playing.


This week we went to visit family in Asheville, NC. I love that city! It’s delightfully weird.

While we were there, we admired my sister’s flower pots,


did lots of interesting window-shopping downtown,


DSC03089 sweated roasted picnicked and waited for fireworks on the church lawn after great worship and preaching


all to be rewarded later with this:


This picture is my entry for this week’s photo challenge over at Simplicity. The theme: color!

Think it works? :)

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Thanks for sharing your fun with us!! Love the pics, especially the fireworks!!

  2. That sounds like fun. I love Asheville too and only wish that I had someone there to visit.

    I hope that you are enjoying your summer.


  3. Thanks for participating :)
    LOVE the "peace love books" poster - that's awesome. I really like your fireworks pic. It's quite different then the usual - and I like it.

  4. What a beautiful fireworks picture! We are headed to NC to retrieve our youngest who has been visiting her grandparents! It's a lovely place to visit!

    Blessings Ginger!
