1. Our friend Leslie let us catch some polliwogs from her pond, and then helped the kids find some water plants to feed them. They’re all doing well in a jar in the kitchen windowsill, and we’re looking forward to watching them grow arms and legs.

2. Our deck chairs and living room are waiting to be filled with guests! Looking forward to a visit with Grandma and Grandpa Bob and Karen (and Mel and Judy) later this summer. And…?

3. See how good the chairs look filled with friends? We really enjoyed having our new neighbors, Dan and Amber and their girls, next door for the last month-and-a-half. Many good conversations, shared dreams, and games played.

4. We’ve done a little fishing this summer and the boys are hooked. Don’t tell them, but Kerry got them fishing poles and tackle for their birthdays. Now I need to learn how to fry fish really well.

6. It’s really neat to watch storms from our place. One night recently there was a big one going on east of us and another one going on north of us at the same time. While we watched under blue skies, we could see lightning coming out of the clouds in these pictures, and the people in those areas were getting hail the size of quarters. We got a storm at our place a few days later and I captured one of the lightning flashes, which lit up the yard almost like daytime.

7. Josh got the worst of it in this dirt fight. Ethan and Sam are sympathetic?

8. I really enjoyed the end-of-year dinner hosted by the leaders of the homeschool moms group that meets out here every month. It’s a lovely group of ladies!

9. The kids had a great time swimming in the river at the bottom of Mingo Mountain.

10. Amber and Dan, you won’t believe how much water has come into that area since we were there last week! Check out last week vs. today. These are taken from the same spot up above.
