Summer update.

Summer Update

Just a quick update on what we have been doing this summer. Peyton spent a week at Bold Camp. Both the kids attended our VBS. (Which was in the evening). Last week they wen tto Jr. Ranger camp. The last day of Ranger Camp we went to RiverSports Outfitters and the kids got to do the climbing wall. 

Lexi and I got new bikes.

We have been learning more about wildlife from watching it in our yard.
This was a rat snake climbing up my brick wall on my carport.
It is now dead. (And they don't have teeth.)

We had 4 baby wrens and a cowbird. I removed the cowbird, so the wrens wouldn't starve. But something ended up getting them the other night. We were so disappointed.

The little cowbird was really friendly.

Visit with Keegan

We finally got a chance to meet my nephew, Keegan in person. He was diagnosed with Lukemia a year and a half ago. (And they have not been able to travel since.) Due to all the chemo treatments etc.

This week my brother, Mike, his wife Shawna and the boys got to finally come for a visit. It was so great to see them all and get to spend time with them. I have to say it really went by too fast. And I hope we get more time to visit in the future.

This is my nephew, Nate, He is so cute and full of energy!

 This is little Keegan. One of the side effects of the chemo (He is in phase 3 right now) is that he has nerve damage in his legs, so he may be running or walking, and his legs just give out. (And he falls.) So he gets scraped up pretty often.

My husband, Gary took them all out for a boat ride. That is my brother, Mike waving.
