July Fun

 Crafting while camping (Hoffmaster SP.)
 In search of a Letter Box, GR.
 Lake James.
 Under age driving.
 Really under age.

 With Faith and Aunt Amy :)
 Uncle Lee gave us a Hello Kitty Cake Pop Kit...the pictures on the box did not look like this but they were yummy.
 At the Gardens.
 Move night: Sophie with Cheerios, Paulie with popcorn.
 Building roads on our driveway.

 To Paulie's delight, Dad had 5 tons of stones dumped next to their house when we were in town.

 Awaiting ice cream.
Today's project.

The Gardens, Letterboxing, and the Beach

 At one of our favorite GR parks.
 At the Garden's with our fun neighbors.
 I'm pretty sure they weren't supposed to be up here...
 Back yard fun.
 I suppose you can't tell from the picture but the rain was rollin' in and we had to head out a little premature.  Nothing like a little lightning show on the lake.
 A new tradition started here, Letterboxing.  It's essentially a scavenger hunt for kids involving a Team Name, Personal Stamp, Journal and Clues.

 At the Garden's again, with Aunt Kelsey this time.  Why is he doing this?
 We were delighted to visit with our dear friends Carrie, Corrie and Mary...I'm guessing Sophie took this one of Corrie :)
 Grandma's new pool.
 A Letterbox in St. Joseph, MI.  This one was a little tricky to nail down...and it was hot...and Paulie mentioned there were A LOT OF PLANTS (!)...but we found it.

 Ice cream pre-beach time.

Pokagon SP

Last weekend, headed to Pokagon.

 What is it about those wax worms?
 We went to a "snake talk" at the Nature Center.  (Not my idea.)

This Week

 At the Gardens...
 There's a really big horse there.

 Birthday boy and his sweet Sophie :)
 And Pooh Bear?
 Sophie evidently took my camera because I know I didn't take this.  Her stained glass artwork from this past fall...
 and Paulie's piggy bank.
 First day of Kindergarten.
 Last Day :)
A class picture from a couple of weeks ago.  Her teacher on the left is one talented woman, thankful to have shared this year with her along with these sweet kids.  They left the room singing, "May the LORD bless you, may the LORD keep you..."
