Allergies are Awful

Hey there everybody! 

I hope you are all having a fantastic start to your summer! And to those who live in different parts of the world I hope your seasons are lovely too! 

Justin and I have been looking for a new car as ours has officially kicked the bucket. I'm kinda sad because it was our first car together. And it was such an a bright shade of blue you could never miss it! 

My back is doing ok-ish. Somedays it is just awful and other days it is fine. It gets worse whenever a storm is coming, I feel like an old lady, "A storm's coming I can feel it in my bones!" Joking aside though it's true! 

My ankle is doing well, although my darling husband accidently sat on my good ankle! When a 190+ lbs of full grown man are placed on your foot it hurts! Thankfully it stopped hurting after two days and is totally fine and a funny story now. Justin felt so horrible about it. We are both so thankful it healed up. 

I have been *trying* to be more active lately and have succeeded a bit. Its going to be a long and hard process to get back to where I was before the injuries. I keep having to remind myself that I'm not going to magically wake up one day and everything is going to be "normal" again, and that it is ok that my definition of "normal" is different now. 

Oh and by the way allergies are AWFUL. I miss being able to breathe lol. 
Anybody have advice in that department? I'm living on benadryl! I can tell you that when my allergies are bad I have worse anxiety and just an overall bad day. If you do not suffer from seasonal allergies praise the Lord! And be extra kind to all your friends and family who do, give them lots of hugs and candy.   :) 

Love, Rebecca

Luna Moth

Look what my husband found!! 
This Luna Moth was by our back door just chilling. 

I thought it was so neat to see one of these beautiful insects. Do you have these types of moths where you live?

Matt's Birthday

Justin playing Frisbee with the kids

Katelyn got Matthew KitKats candybars because her nickname is "Kit-Kat". How cute is that???

We gave Matthew a Vinyl figure that you can paint on to create your own little character toy. Matt is VERY creative so I can't wait to see the finished product.

This looked REALLY fun!

My siblings are anxiously awaiting the release of the Lego Movie to DVD. They are obsessed with Legos and build awesome creations.

Blow out the candles!

Kitty, Grandpa and Caleb

Their little neighbor friend wanted to be in the picture too! She is very sweet and funny.

My husband wants to play with those Legos too.... lol
He grew up playing with Legos. I have a Lego dragon model he recently made on my bookshelf!


We were invited to a barbecue a while ago and I was having terrible anxiety about it but my husband was so sweet and encouraging and I was able to go without panicking.

Look at my cute husband!

Some of our teens and College and Career church members chatting and playing ping-pong. 
I am terrible at ping-pong!

I did play a teeny tiny little bit of Frisbee with Justin. I used to love playing Ultimate Frisbee but I can't anymore. It was nice!

Love, Rebecca

Favorite of the Week- Child of Light

I have been listening to this soundtrack on repeat! It is so beautiful. This is the music for a new game called "Child of Light". I have tried the Demo and it is soooo beautiful! I can't wait to try it out! 

Below are some of my favorite fan artwork of the game's heroine Aurora 

*sigh* I wish I could draw.... aren't these people wildly talented??? And isn't this music so pretty?! 

Love Rebecca
