What's going on here...

Wow, we've really been not posting much. Sorry.
Here are some pictures from the last few days.


Ian and Seth have really been into Lincoln Logs lately.

It's hard to believe that August (and summer) is almost over. It has gone by so fast! We are starting school next week. Most of us are excited for that.... :D

In Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Psalm 16:11

"Cleaning" Dad's shoes

Ian found some brushes and shoe-polishing supplies that we had in the closet. He got straight to work "cleaning" shoes. :D He is so eager to help (usually)!

County Fair

This last week we spent a couple of days at the county fair. We had a ton of fun there! :D The first day we looked at animals, 4H exhibits, and watched some of our friends show horses. The other day we mostly did rides. I didn't bring my camera on the first day, though so these are pretty much the only pictures I have.

Seth and Ian

We are really hoping to get in a 4H club this next year. We really would like to show animals, but right now that doesn't seem to be God's plan for us. We have been trying to move for about 4 years now and are learning that God's plan is best, and He is teaching us something through this. So whether we move to a farm or not, we'll do our best to serve God right where we are. Anyway, even if we don't move, we would still like to show craft projects in 4H. :D

I don't know who took these pictures or where they were taken... :D We usually have a lot of pictures of flowers and plants on our computer. :D

Yesterday morning we went garage sale-ing (okay, I guess that's not a word! :D). We found a few things, but mostly a bunch of.... junk (for lack of a better word). Then we went to the hardware store to rent an edger.

We spent about 4 hours edging our sidewalk. It was really long... I was quite surprised that it took that long for our whole family. We do have quite a bit of sidewalk though. We haven't done it in years (or maybe we've never done it.... ?) so that's probably why it took so long. Anyway, we were glad when it was done!

Then we came inside and made homemade pizza for dinner. We LOVE it! We usually do sausage and green pepper and it is amazing!!! :D Then we played games for a while, and then we watched Facing the Giants. :D

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
