Monday Musings...

 We have been trying to do some canning and freezing of corn.  Lots of helpers this year.  

 We read the book- Henry the Castaway, one of the Five in a Row books in volume 3, and one evening made a map and followed it to find our way through our journeys.  The kids loved acting out the story in the woods.  
 Lydia and cousin Anna had a tea party one Saturday while the boys went with Grandpa to a small airport to view the airplanes.  Here's to the start of a new week.  Happy Monday!

Biking Mackinac Island...

We enjoyed so much biking around Mackinac Island when we were on our vacation last month.  Jeremiah overcame his fear and biked with Daddy and I pulled two kids behind me.  It was quite the work out.  Joel- he stayed behind with Pop-pop and Mom-mom for a little bit.

A new door

 We have a new door in our hallway!  We can now look from one bathroom to the other and Joel has his room across the hall.  We are so thankful for this added space!

Soccer, soccer...

 Jeremiah is starting soccer.  He loves it so far but really has no experience playing yet.  We chose to have him play through the YMCA because we had a membership for the summer and saved us money, plus the team he is on only plays and practices Saturday morning.  We want to be so careful what we have our children in so that we are not running crazy to all kinds of activities.  We want to assess everything we decide to do with whether it will work with our family culture.  Here comes #2,  working on skills and LOTS of energy!

First Day of School...

It has been quite the 2 weeks.  Michael has had Hand, Foot and Mouth for the past week and has had bad sores in his mouth.  He survived on these- Star Wars popsicles.

Last week we started school and I came back with a cold and felt horrible last week.  So thankful the Lord's mercy is new for this new week to start over again.  So because we felt so bad last week and didn't take any pictures- here is our pictures for the week starting school this year.

Joel- 2 months

 Here's baby Joel at 2 months old.  He was is starting to smile and talk to us regularly.  He still is fussy at times but was doing great at sleeping through the night around 7 weeks, until we went on vacation last week.  He's a cute little munchkin and so far really loves his pacy- the kids loves to suck and it is the only thing that calms him down.
