Catching Up...

It's been a busy few months and I've been all but ignoring the blog, so it's time for some quick catching up....

Dad's been in and out of surgery and seems to be doing well, back to walking and eating well each day. The pathology reports look good so far. Praise God! 

The kids have been taking swimming lessons and they all seem to love it. I'm a little jealous of the swim instructor that Miriam is absolutely in love with, but she still seems to have plenty of love to give me when I get home. 

The cat and dog have still been annoying each other. Here Kodak demonstrates his dominance by eating from the Morpheus' dishes and then taking a nap in Morpheus' bed.

Christina's been canning, starting with a year's supply of strawberry jelly. Mmmmm.

We celebrated David's 12th birthday. (With a fancy cake by Christina!)

We went on our second annual 4th of July camping trip to Lake Merwin with our home schooling group. We couldn't have asked for better weather, the water was perfect for swimming, the nights warm, and a bit of wind here and there for sailing. Here are some shots from the bike parade.

Last weekend David went to the Youth Shotgun Clinic, I think we found a sport that he really enjoys! There were about 75 kids at the event, and David was put on a team with just two other boys, so he got some great hands on training. Here are some shots and a video of him being coached by Tom Jones, the club president and Skeet state champ, who we were lucky enough to be paired with the for the day.

One morning a balloon flew right over our house, that was fun.

The garden is growing like crazy, I'll try to get some shots of that in later. For now that about catches us up so I can get this blog guilt off my back. :)
