First day of school

Will started first grade today! It is fun to experience the excitement of Will as he prepares to go to school. I confess that his excitement has made these beginning days at the college a wee bit more exciting for me.

In the last couple weeks of summer, Jon decided that he could be "superman" by turning his bib around, taking most clothing off and running around the back yard. The flip flops?? Any shoe but his works for Jon.

summer vacation--2010

We're back in Beaver Falls after @ 6700 miles. Yes, we drove to CA--3 days there and 4 days back. The boys were fairly good most of the time although as the end of our drive came to a close, we were all very tired.....We came home to a freshly painted house (thanks Herb McCracken and family)--it seems that the house wasn't the only object rejuvenated......We went to Huntington Beach, Knotts Berry Farm, Medieval Times, Ashley and Ryan's wedding, swimming, miniature golf, zoo, church lake bbq, July 4th bbq and fireworks, family, Creation Museum, and much more. We all had a wonderful time and I'm including a few pictures to highlight the trip.
