goin' campin'

Isaiah and I are getting ready to go camping for a night with some friends. We're celebrating Jacob H.'s 13th birthday. The boys are all making sure each is bringing his pocket knife.

Isaiah is feeling strong!

august = birthmonth

The kids are both doing great. They started school this week. They're both home schooling again this year.

Both had fun birthday celebrations which seemed to stretch on far beyond the actual day. We were so thankful for many phone calls from friends and family. And with 4 or 5 other family birthdays in August, we've been eating a whole lot of cake!

All is well. Thanks for checking-in!

Just now cleaning up from a big party for Isaiah's seventh birthday. So grateful for friends and family who came by and celebrated with us. Missed those who couldn't come. Here's some pics:

Happy Birthday Isaiah!

This morning I heard him stir, gasp, and then exclaim, "I'm seven! I'm seven! I'm seven!"

beach 09

Isaiah struggled with a fever for the first several days of our annual family beach week, but turned the corner in time to feel good for the last two days.

It's always good to be with family for this week. I think we've gone more than 25 years in a row!

Isaiah said his favorite park of the week was being pulled by his uncle Ryan on a boogie board through the waves. Good times.

Home and feeling healthy! He felt great by the end of the week. Beach pics soon. Thank you all.
