Sailing Through Summer

Well, summer is sailing along and we have settled into a more relaxed routine now that most of the scheduled activities are over. Grant's football practices will start in two weeks, but until then we have nothing on the calendar, which is kind of nice.

So, Grant and Katie have been playing outside with kids in the neighborhood quite a bit. They have a special spot by some trees that they have claimed as a "fort" and all kinds of pretending goes on with the upkeep and guarding of the fort. It is an ongoing game that is picked up every time they run outside to play. I'm glad they enjoy playing outside so much as opposed to wanting to watch T.V. all day!

We have also been taking some fun outings as a family, like to a park or a lake, and hope to do some more of that in the next couple of weeks. Before we know it, summer will be over and it will be time to start school again!

I'm so glad you sent this to me again. I'd forgotten how wonderful it is to see all of you and hear what is going on. I used to come here on a regular basis; don't know why I've been forgetting. I can't believe Katie is almost as tall as Grant. They are such well rounded kids, thanks to you and Dave. What Grant said about slavery was so touching...out of the mouths of babes. You are so good with the pictures and the things you say. This will be so wonderful to look back on. Better than a camcorder. Love Mom
