June 19-25

Just a busy, busy moving week.
Our stuff is in storage and we have moved in with Josh's parents.
Official status: In transition . . . 
(oh the ellipses, pregnant with such possibility)  ;o)

June 12-18

 First full official swim of the summer for all the kids! We are late this year!
My littlest boy.
 While the brothers play ball, this one climbs the tank.
Sprinkler time for my happy hostas and boys.
(So sad to leave these hostas behind . . .). :o(
Celebrated a 16th anniversary and in true documenting fashion forgot a picture of us all spiffed up for a hot date in Columbus. ;o)
The main reason this week is shy of pictures . . .
Packing is picking up.
I might kind of hate moving.

June 5-11

 Vacation Recovery--
We always start out well, with our homemade meals and lots of fresh fruit, but by the end we might be hitting the McDonald's drive-through a few too many times. ;o)  These boys were all about getting caught up on grapes and watermelon.
 Trimming up some tree branches for the next residents of our home.
 Getting a family game night in before we pack everything away.
Baseball--was amused to watch the great time Emmett has in the dug-out socializing.
This girl was ready for a change and chopped about a foot of hair off.
Toads--always a happy discovery for a boy.
The swing out back with its patch of worn out grass and one proud little 2 year old.

May 29-June 4

Camping at Smoky Mountain National Park~2 nights . . . no cell phone reception and no showers (go me!). ;o)
 First glimpse of the ocean--Huntington Beach State Park, SC.
Beach day!!
 Exploring more of beautiful South Carolina with Josh's aunt and uncle.
 Traveling day as we head back through the Smokies and into Kentucky.
 Mammoth Cave National Park in the morning, St. Louis by evening so Josh and the boys can catch a Cards game.
Home again, home again, jiggity jig
(and by home I mean Josh's parents' home--our leaving and arriving headquarters for this trip). ;o)
