Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

And Now It Is July

We spent July 4th with some old friends and new friends. We enjoyed the fireworks sitting on a dock on Lake Geneva in Wisconsin (wish it was Switzerland), but we had a fantastic time.

Grace, Jack, and David


Our new friends (lovely family, by the way) had this neat swimming area at their house.  The girls had a grand time swimming and playing in the sand.

Jack, trying a dive off the canoe.

All the kiddos lined up trying to sink the canoe.  They were not successful.

Such a beautiful place!

Now onto my childhood.  I absolutely loved tadpoles when I was a little girl.  Any chance I could, I'd find some sort of waterhole and a bucket to bring home tadpoles.  I loved watching them swim in the palm of my hand.  So, when I got to see this...


...it brought back such fond memories!  Then, we got the see some tadpoles growing some legs...


...but, when they were onshore by the hundreds like this and now tiny frogs...


...my girls weren't too amused about my childhood stories.  I won't mention the fact that we stepped on many, squishing them to their death.


Yes, I know.  I failed once again.  No sunblock for Jack caused this look.  You would think he had been floating in the ocean for a week.  Poor guy.


Becky and I have been friends since 1997.  Since moving away from Illinois in 2001, we've visited each other all but one year.  I love this girl!

4 kind words:
