Spring and Summer at a Glance

I suppose there's no excuse or explanation for being away for five and a half months, so here's a peek at some highlights from our family life this spring and summer.

Adam has really advanced in Karate! He's a purple belt now and he loved doing a week long karate camp this summer.

The cousins went on a fun Spring Break trip to Great Wolf Lodge with Pappy and Mary.

 School, school, and more school!
My hard-working students!

Book club dictionary activity

Learning about rocks with Pappy and Mary

Mastering Math!
Adam turned NINE!
It was a Harry Potter birthday with a sleepover!

I got to sneak away to San Antonio for a weekend with my bestie!

We turned our sandbox into a vegetable garden!
It was a fun success!

We took a quick trip to Sandusky with our friends.
We enjoyed Great Wolf Lodge and a trip to Put-In-Bay

We've taken a few trips to Michigan to visit our family and have some fun!

 Cub Scout Day Camp was lots of fun!
Adam is now a Webelo I and Ray is a Webelo II.

We spent LOTS of time at our pool and MaMaw's pool, with friends and cousins.

 The boys had a second fun, successful year on the swim team! They both improved and had fun. Ray was able to place fifth in the butterfly in the league meet!

They got the "Double Trouble" Award at the team picnic!

And, finally,....
we got a new car!
Goodbye old minivan with 130,000 miles!
Hello shiny new Traverse!

So, there you have it...
the highlights!
Hope to be writing here more often.
Thanks for checking in.
