Our summer began with a rainbow in the backyard. We actually had several days that week with double rainbows in the evening. What a pretty way to start the season.
We expanded our front garden and added a large rock to compliment the new sidewalk we had put in earlier.
Summer evenings were for riding our scooter and watching the hawks that lived in our backyard.
They were also for goofing off in front of the camera.
Yes, believe it or not it was also the first day of the new school year, right in the middle of summer! I am a mean mommy!! ;)
We cheered on the USA Olympic team and made a whole photo essay with these little critters that Kid #4 made. You should see what they did in one day!hehe
We found some time for fishing! All we caught were these little guys, though. Kid #4 managed to snag over 25 of them!
Summer was also good for working on new projects. She decided on her own to work on a notebook of her favorite bible verses.
We took some time to visit George Washington's home.
Even fit in a stroll with George and Martha before we left.
Our flowers grew this summer and put on a pretty display.
The dog spent some time outside wishing he was on the inside. He always wants to be where we are.
Kid #4 decorated this lovely cake for a school project.
We worked on some science projects.
Changed the art display featuring kid #4.
Tropical Storm Hannah came for a visit.
We ended the summer with friends and a big ice cream sundae bash!!
