a project for everyone

 Hannah and I worked on making Christmas ornaments.

 Hunter helped Derrick paint the bathroom.
 Whiskers checked on everyone and then took a nice long nap in the middle of the living room floor.
 A few of the finished ornaments.
 We couldn't let the day end without a little bike ride.
 The bathroom is really coming along. Derrick always does such great work. I really like the color.

the boy loves dirt

This is Hunter's happy place. He can't stay out of the dirt when he is outside. I love it!

biking riding and relaxing

 They are getting really good at riding their bikes! Thankful Derrick was such a great, patient teacher!

We watched season one of Full House to relax after all of that bike riding!

pool, bike riding, egg rolls and reading

 I am so happy it is summer time. We spent the morning at the pool. It was really cloudy so it was not crowded at all.

 They are both doing so well. It is going much better than I expected!

 I am trying to cook one new recipe a week. Tonight I made baked southwestern egg rolls.

After baths we enjoyed reading a little before bed. I hope most of our summer days look like today.

 Learning to ride bikes!
 Day 1 - they are both excited, lets hope that keeps up
 Look at those determined faces!
 Hunter has no fear! Hannah is a little scared, but still trying!

the porch

I love sitting on our porch reading and just hanging out. There is usually a breeze and it is just peaceful. I hope to spend lots of time this summer reading and hanging out on the porch. I hope Whiskers does not need to sit in my lap every time though.

Hannah's end of year awards

Hannah had a great year. I am glad I was able to attend her awards program this morning. Thanks Shelly for helping Rachelle with my class. I work with the best people ever. Good job Hannah, we are so proud of you!

the floor

We decided to grout the floor tonight. I had flashbacks to our first house and no kids. I decided we are too old now to start a project like this at 9pm.
