Joseph's Art

We've had Joseph's 2nd grade art decorating our dining room. We need to make room for 3rd grade art, so we're taking pictures to preserve these masterpieces!

Cub Scout Camp

Joseph loved his first year of Cub Scout Day Camp. There was a spy theme and the boys did all kinds of fun activities from deciphering codes to making little radios.  Fernando rode with us each day to camp, and he and Joseph became great friends.

Big Girl Bedroom

We moved Abigail out of the crib--into a big girl bed and added pink and purple curtains for good measure. She loves it--and invites everyone who visits the house to come see her room.

Love these girls of mine!

Anna climbs to get what she wants--and he has a fascination with the router.

Abigail has a fashion sense all her own.

Abigail strips her bed and JUMPS!! She has endless energy!
