Some of the Last Few Week's Happenings.... seemed that we weren't watching our garden so well since quite a few plants were getting pulled up, roots and all. James figured we needed a scarecrow. Well, here we go making one.
The kids had tons of fun stuffing this guy:)
James even supervised and helped me figure out how to get the head to stay together.
The head before we mounted it...
Funny looking...but hopefully it helps. Really high now, but when the corn grows up behind it, it may not seem quite so high:)
James and Jared eating Strawberry Shortcake on Father's Day. Hopefully Jared won't eat whipped cream again for a long time....he wasn't too happy for the rest of the afternoon and kept spitting up in protest against the strange stuff Dad gave him!!!!
Jared has been rolling from his stomach to back for a long time but this was the first time I caught him rolling from back to stomach.
His triumphant grin when his mission was accomplished:) Now he's doing it all the time; although he's not that keen to be on his stomach. Must just like the challenge of doing something new.
Well, summer came to visit us finally! And we are loving the visit and hoping it'll stay awhile! With this warm weather....the boys and chickens seem to go hand in hand:)
And the more mud....the better!
Garret's not too happy that he just can't seem to go fast enough to catch the little Banty chickens! But he keeps pursuing them anyways.
Girls loving to jump rope.....
Jared enjoying the warm weather also!
Camille loves to sneak my exercise hoop...but can't seem to get it to stay up:)
But Lexa can keep it up, no problem, these days.
We didn't get to go to Joel and Denise's this past weekend because of some James wanted to do a few fun things here at home to try make up for it. "OK kids, let's load up just like you are and head down to the creek to cool down for awhile...". So away we went.
Everyone finding things to do in the creek...on the branches...
They had lots of free fun:) Then we went and got hot dog and smore makings, came home, and had a hot dog roast. Yummy....and relaxing around the campfire!

Ok.....hopefully Alexa's happy:) She's been begging me to post something for awhile now. Finally told me she was taking the kids out and playing with them so I would do it. Mission accomplished:) Love you all, Mona
