For GrandmaLois

I hooked the toy aquarium on the arm of the rocking chair and it is now the favorite toy for both Marianna and Francis.  Well, Marianna keeps the music playing and Francis can't get too far away just yet.  So he's kind of stuck with whatever tune she wants to listen to!

One week later....Marianna still has her glasses!

Keeping the Littles Busy

I was trying to find a way to keep Marianna busy and close to the house.  She wants to go swimming with her older brothers and sister, but there's that little issue of supervision.  So I filled our mega huge popcorn bowl with water and threw in some kitchen utensils for fun.  It was a hit!  Pouring and scooping and squirting (the turkey baster was very popular), they even managed to water a few flowers around the deck.

Francis even got in on the fun...sort of.

Marianna's Glasses...Round 3

Yep, that's right!  We're trying another pair.  Last pair made it less than 5 days and are somewhere out in our yard.  (Even tried to bribe the guys that camped in our yard last week with a prize, if they could locate those sweet pink things!)

So we're starting fresh with these... found them online at a whopping price of $28.98.
That's only $6/day if she keeps them for 5 whole days!  What a bargain.
Bets are at 1 week before these are the latest lost cause.
(I'll keep you updated.)

Vocations Camp

Pictures from last week's camp....

20 campers = 2 simultaneous games of volleyball

2 new ideas this year... we rented tables for meal times and this awesome tent
for a chapel.

Deacon Mitch stopped by for a visit.

Line up for lunch.

Joe's Big Rig

A couple of weeks ago, Joseph stopped by for a quick lunch and a few pictures of the truck he was driving for work.
