I am taking a cue from Grace and writing a little bit about each of us. It has been a long time since our last post!

James is ushering at Miller Park. He wasn't supposed to tonight but agreed to come in due to the high volume of tickets sold. He had been busy with summer school, as well, but not any more. Jim is all done with those students until school starts in Septemer.

Child Care has been a big part of my summer. The children are good, and it helps pay for band and tuition. I have been busy planning our family vacation...Springfield, IL-Hannibal, MO-St. Louis, MO. The checklist is set with all the sites to visit and places to eat!

Logan will be busy in August. He was hired to work at the Wisconsin State Fair. He'll be an usher at the Grandstand. We are excited for him! He is playing indoor soccer during the summer....well the games are indoors, but the practices are out in the heat.

Brett has made a decision...he wants to be a veterinarian when he grows up. He has loved playing with so many new dogs this summer, either from the neighbors or relatives. Brett has been watching a lot of movies recently...the A-Team, Night and Day, The Karate Kid, The Losers, The Blind Side plus all the X-Men movies, all the Ultimate Avengers movies, all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

Katherine plays on Logan's soccer team. She holds her own and does very well. Katherine does need to work on her boasting. She loves working with Coach Francis and her cousin, Arian. She was upset that we chopped down a dead tree in the front lawn...her climbing tree. Because of her loss, she discovered a bigger tree in the back yard is just as good for climbing.

The three kids have enjoyed our numerous trips to the library. We walk daily with church friends. They even got to babysit Charley for an hour!

Our Independence Day Party was a success! There were 35 relatives and friends over for it, and the Lord provided excellent weather.
