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.
Auntie Anne came as well, and a couple days later, Grandma and Grandpa showed up too!
We rode horses.
With and without the children.
Went on a picnic.
Played in a river.
Explored a ghost town.
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.
And whatever you call this. Pants-around-your-ankles walking?
Yup, that was our summer. It was pretty good.
