Summer Catch Up

Now that it’s winter.

Sometimes I wish I had something to work on while the kids are doing their school work and don’t need help every second.  And to be a good example to them, you know?  To show them that I do work too.  And with a good attitude and everything.

So I fought through moving the photos around and resizing them and uploading them to the blog (with a good attitude, I think) while helping the kids every second with their math and corresponding with a puppy buyer (we have puppies for sale) and buying a few songs for Darryl on the other laptop.  I’m nothing if not a good example of a hard worker.

So here’s an overview of our summer!

I’m actually starting in the middle cause I think I covered some of it in another post and cause everything before this is a blur.  All I remember is mowing the grass a lot and dragging the hose all around the house every morning to water the amazing plants I was given from the greenhouse up the road.

So we’ll start with our mini family reunion.  Here’s Darryl’s sister Cheri and brother-in-law Brian setting up their hotel.

I’m hoping we can host more reunions here.  It really is a perfect place for it.

After that, we did a bit of kite flying.
