Our local library's summer reading program is in full swing! The theme this year is science related and Isaac and Joshua have really enjoyed it. Of course there are the traditional rewards for a certain number of books read, but hey, getting cotton candy when you go to the library is an extra treat!
We had a nice Father's Day here at home and made Joe feel special! When we first got married
he never would have believed that he would have six children! You are a great dad, Joe!!
It was such a treat to drive into Tucson and see my mom and dad, and to wish him a
happy Father's Day, too!
Continuing on..............living in the country as we do, boots are mandatory. But considering how
little rainfall we get each year that seems strange, doesn't it?. But they are so handy for the boys
to throw on anytime we are outside - for work or play!
And yes, speaking of our lack of rainfall, we do get lovely little high desert flowers each spring!
David has been enjoying his break from school, but admitted that he is looking forward
to the beginning of school in August. Wow, a sophomore already!
He's being doing some tractor work for Joe once again, which we refer to as "Country Driver's Ed". All of our children have learned to drive the tractor first and the older three have become good, safe, drivers.
We have seen great improvement in David's skills since last summer - this year his rows are nice and
straight compared with last year!
Speaking of David, he is off to QUEST - a month long camp for young men. He went there last year
and had a really great time. He is spending this week before camp with Joe's aunt and uncle
in Texas. Here he is, just arriving today! Have a great time David!
It's very strange to think that David will arrive back home just days before THE WEDDING.
Right now I have three at home, Isaac, Joshua, and Rachel. David comes back from camp and then
Rachel will move on to wedded bliss and nursing school! Seems strange.......but they came in to our
family one at a time, and they are leaving the same way.
FIFTY DAYS UNTIL THE WEDDING!
