July 4, we spent doing chores around the house and garden and then we went to Amery to watch the fireworks.
Cynthia (Richard's sister) and Jimmy came to visit for a couple of days (midnight on Sat. the 7th thru Monday morning). It was really nice to see them. Sarah really attached herself to Jimmy and was sad that she wasn't awake when they left.
The girls left for Girls' Camp on the 10th. They came home the 13th. It was cold and rainy most of the time. The boys (Richard, John and Michael) went to Scout Camp on the 14th. They've had a mix of cool & rain, and hot and humid, but the last 2 days have just been perfect. (about 80 with 50% humidity) They will come home tonight.
With the kids that were left at home, I took to the science museum and the zoo.
Today, Alisha, Emily, Sarah & Daniel built a fort in the woods, dressed up and they were the 'Keepers of the Key.' Tamara--recognize Alisha's dress?
