Summer update

So far in June, we've enjoyed VBS, swimming lessons, and Billy's 20-year high school reunion. June has turned out to be REALLY hot, so we've tried to keep cool. Outdoors, we've found some refreshing spots, and indoors, we've been busy with games, crafts, puppet shows, and costume changes. Vivian had her tonsils and adenoids out last Wednesday. She has been doing very well, so hopefully we can get back out and about very soon! She has been such a trooper. There were no tears until today. I had been seeing how she would do on less pain medication. She started hurting this afternoon and cried a little. Mostly, she just wanted me to hold her. She is such a cuddler! I love that girl!!
The boys have learned how to ride their bicycles without training wheels, so they've been tearing up the pavement! Rebecca almost has it. She balances really well, but we just can't get her to keep pedaling! I think she'll have it in a couple of more days! Nannie has been working with Rebecca on her reading. She is learning a lot of sight words and things are starting to click (I think); she definitely has good days and bad days with her attention.

Look out, Diana Ross!

Mmmm...these Logan's yeast rolls aren't bad.

Chewing in the sunshine.

Henry, the squinter

This water feels so good!

Vivian prances around.


Cold watermelon!

My ears glow with this backlighting!
