A day at the park

I know it has been a long time since I have blogged and I apologize to my family and friends who do actually follow this blog. We've really been up to a LOT.

My father came to stay with us for two weeks and we put him to work! We accomplished so much that I think I was exhausted and needed some time to recover. We cleaned the yard, pulled weeds, dug and cut tree stumps, cut branches, tilled for a garden, built a trellis for the raspberries then we moved inside and he fixed our leaking air conditioner, removed wall paper, prepared walls with drywall compound, sanded walls, painted walls and moved furniture and he worked with Al a few days, too. Thanks Dad!!! We loved having you to visit and I especially loved all the projects that we were able to tackle. I could not have gotten so much done without you.

Then the weather turned off VERY nice and we have been spending nearly all day every day outside so I've had little time for blogging until today when I got some great pictures that I just had to share.

After attending my nephew's baseball game last night, my children were inspired to play a little baseball. So we grabbed our baseball gear and hit the baseball field by 9:30am.

Lillee wanted to pitch and Connor was ready to hit it out of the park!

I could not believe this shot until I enlarged it…please, click the picture…enlarge it, can you see what I see? :)

Isabel was happy to just play on the playground, she lost interest in baseball fairly quick.

Connor has learned to shuttle himself across the monkey bars and here is a short video showing what a monkey he truly is.

Do you see how crisp and beautiful it is outside? This is why we’ve spent every day outdoors…it’s therapeutic! Well, that and we really needed to do a lot of yard work and I’ve spent a long time in the garden. I’ll post garden pics when I have some green growing. Right now it looks like beds of red clay…not very exciting for all the work I’ve put into it. And to think we get to count all of this as school work!
