It finally feels like we're having a summer break. June was busy and fun, but now we're loving not having to be anywhere unless we really want to! I think we have been swimming 11 out of the past 14 days...it's been glorious.
Owen has a nice new "war wound" on his face. Of course. He was doing "tree falls" in his bed and misjudged how close he was to his headboard. The bridge of his nose is still really swollen, his eye is turning a little black, and he has a nice cut. This kid really should be wearing a helmet. Seriously. The next day he went to try out a karate class, and I told him it just made him look really tough. He really liked the class, and what he lacked in skill he made up for in volume. I'm pretty sure people outside could hear him yell "YES SIR" and "HI YAH".

The bigger kids (Chris, Greg, Alyssa and Paw Paw) got a game of basketball in to wrap up the afternoon. And I got hooked up with about with over 100 fresh eggs and some wonderful veggies from Aunt Kerri's garden. I'm so thankful for the Hoyle family that keeps this city girl with a brown thumb well taken care of!
Happy birthday, Paw Paw! We love you!
