Summer 2010 project...

... one of them :)

This is how Dad's arbor is going! He started this project at the beginning of the summer with lots of doubts from lots of people... but like most things he plans, it worked out great!

It kinda looks like it's dying, although the fruit is doing great.


Neat, huh? I think it's pretty neat that we actually have squash and cantaloupe hanging over our deck!

Little boys and summer

Summer's here and things are getting crazy! With only a little over a month left until fair, we're starting and finishing projects (and everything in between ☺), working with animals.... and overall having lots of fun!

This week our cousin, Christopher is going to be here with us for a few days, and we're all very excited. :)

Today it looks like we may get a break from the heat and have a thunderstorm.... fun! :)

What else is going on.....?

Here's a quick story from this morning:

We were all in the kitchen peacefully getting breakfast and getting ready for the day when Ian announced:
"There's a bird in the pool!"

We looked out the window and sure enough, there was live bird in our baby pool on the deck. It was flapping around and couldn't get to the step.
Mom picked the bird up with the top of an aquarium cage (I guess we didn't have anything better....) and was able to set it on the deck... but then the bird's foot got stuck in the cage top. We tipped it over and were able to get the bird onto the deck, but of course... it couldn't fly or walk. Then, Mom decided to move it to somewhere where it wouldn't get more wet, because it's supposed to rain. She put it in a bucket and set it under the raspberry bushes, wet and tired. I wonder if it will live.....

We don't have any pictures because the camera is dead right now.... sorry.

The reading program at the library is underway and the boys want to be read to constantly (especially Ian ☺). That's a good thing I suppose!

Well I need to get going on another busy, exciting day! (Then again, every day here is exciting.) ☺

Happy Birthday, Seth!

Today is Seth's 4th birthday!

This little boy has been such a tremendous blessing to our family the past 4 years. One of his greatest characteristics is his almost constant smile. He is such a joy to have in our family.

Seth also has an incredible amount of energy! He loves to wrestle with his brother and RUN! He can also spend hours doing legos, playmobil, and drawing. He can make almost anything out of... almost anything!

Other things he likes to do are sing, read, say the alphabet, and cook (he calls himself our "cooker boy").

We love you, Seth!

Our Little Helper

This afternoon all of the girls went out and when we got back we found Ian mopping the floor! He hadn't even been asked, he just decided that he would be helpful. :)
He is so thoughtful!!
