Our summer is flying by at lightning speed which makes me incredibly thankful that I didn’t enroll our oldest in to Pre-K this Fall. In CA, schools start super early like August 16th early.
Growing up in the mid-west and as a former teacher I was very aware of the fact that school did not start until after Labor Day. Come on CA, what are you thinking?
Our family we still have until the first week of September before our Fall activities began and I’m going to hold on to every single precious day of this summer break.
Our Fall will be quite full as we welcome baby number 3 and possibly move. I say, possibly because our lease ends mid November but we haven’t decided on what we will do.
A year ago, not having a game plan would have been super unsettling and even stressful. But I’ve learned that God has a plan and if I’m walking with Him – I won’t miss it. Not only will I not miss it but I don’t have to make any of my own plans either. For me, this has not been an easy mind set to get too but has been incredibly life changing.
It may sound like I’m choosing to be passive, apathetic, or un-intentional with my future but it’s quite the opposite. Instead of trusting in my self or directing my own steps, I have discovered that there is great joy even peace in submitting my will to God. Essentially, I have surrendered my personal ambitions and goals in order to follow God’s call for my life.
Words seem to fail to express the depth of freedom, joy and peace I have received as a result of this decision. The worry, anxiety, stress or burden I felt before big decisions is now gone. Realizing I don’t and shouldn’t even being carrying around any type of burden as a follower of Jesus, has been transformational.
We also absolutely love where we live. For the last almost two years we have lived in a 1,000 square foot apartment. The biggest blessing is that it’s super easy for me to clean. 🙂 But we also have a huge patio with lots of friendly neighbors so it doesn’t feel like an apartment at all. Instead it feels like we have our own private oasis with bright blue skies, palm tress, and little hummingbirds flying around. To stay would be a joy!
The other thing about living in an apartment that brings me joy is sharing all of these delicious dessert recipes with our neighbors. Our family gets to indulge in a sampling of different desserts without going over board and the neighbor kids love being my taste testers as well. 🙂
Lately, frozen treats have been the way to go with temperatures hitting low to mid 80’s. I wanted to make something that was healthy and cold but not another popsicle.
How about Frozen Yogurt Berries, Instead?
Not only is this a really fun snack to eat but it’s also a fun one to make. My two year old and four year old were in heaven sneaking raspberries and blueberries into their mouth. I love when I can offer a healthy snack that is easy, tasty and simple to make.
The family seemed to love the blueberries dipped in strawberry banana coconut yogurt over the raspberries dipped into the blueberry yogurt. I think it could have a lot to do with my raspberries being too tart. My raspberries weren’t very sweet just eating them by themselves either. My kids have already asked me if we can make this recipe again.
