Happy 2nd bday to Grace & Coco!


Why we love our neighborhood

The doorbell rang & our neighbor asked if we wanted to come over bc they'd made a "water blob" ...turns out to be a paint drop-cloth with taped sides & filled with water - perfect for a hot day!

See how long it takes you to figure out what she's drawing...

Spectrum Camp Extravaganza

  Kids have had a fabulous time doing tons of amazing art work at camp, from print making and paper mache to tie dying their shirts and clay critter creations.

Surrounded

It is not unusual to find that Joni has surrounded herself with literally dozens of horses and princesses in bed.

Joni's sweet self-congratulatory note


Joni had a brief almost-choking incident this past week that scared her. A couple nights later at dinner, she became very afraid to eat, and did not want to swallow her food for fear she would choke.  Slowly but surely, she worked her way through her meal, and after her ‘exposure therapy’ session, proudly wrote herself a note:
Dear Joni, 
I was scared to swallow. I love how you eat because I’m not afraid anymore.

Happy 4th of July!

Taking the red, white & blue to the extreme...
Morning pancakes and manicures 
 Very fun old-fashioned 4th at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton
 Girls' favorite part was getting a lesson in the 1-room school house. They had to curtsy for the headmaster before showing their answers on slates.

Visit to SPCA (no, we didn't get a kitten but it was tempting!)
