Communing with nature


I'm trying out a new way of sharing pictures and stories.  It's an app called 'Steller'.   I'll post links on the blog for those family member that prefer coming here but you could also follow me and get my posts in your Steller feed.

Milo and I had a nice morning today.

Beat the Heat

Lots of fun this summer at the pool.

In Line

This should be interesting.

I Can See You Now

Levi gets glasses!

Tiger Cub

I'm experimenting with new ways to share pictures.  Check out Levi all ready for his first Tiger Scout meetings:

The boys really enjoy being together.

I love watching them play. This summer, though, their individual interests became more clear.

Levi loves a project. He wants to make plans and DO. Here he is chiseling.

Milo likes to create. He loves his paints and markers...

...and sidewalk chalk.
One especially hot day we came home and Levi immediately asked if he could work on sawing a big limb in the backyard. 

I asked Milo if he wanted to do the same.  He looked at me like I was crazy then asked to do some crafts- inside where it was cool. 

Levi sawed and sawed and sweated and sweated.

Milo cut and drew and colored and made a mess.

I get such a kick out of them!

Summer Days

This foursome comes up with the best stuff.  Sometimes it's a one-act play.  Sometimes they'll treat you to a concert.  Here was a construction project.

It was a small fort of some kind.

They all used to fit on a bed much easier than this!

Jumping Beans

Is there any non-toy more fun than a mattress on the floor?

Well, maybe an empty refrigerator box or a space heater.

Family Visit

Summer is wrapping up! This blog is our digital scrapbook and I want to capture some of our summer's great memories. I have lots to catch-up on.

Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa came for a visit end-of-June. We got to celebrate Dad's birthday as well as July 4th. They were here for a week and it was such a treat to spend that time together.
