Jake and Dan's Summer Activities

Jake and Dan have spent hours on the trampoline, including one night outside sleeping on it.

They have made terrifying creatures in the family room

They have built tall buildings
And short ones
They have built forts and slept in them (for at least a part of the night)

Then they got their braces on.  Jake was first.

And Dan was next (the same day)
They have also played with friends, gone to the pool, played their instruments, played Wii games, played computer games, gone to the library, and watched movies.  There have been a lot of "picnic" lunches in front of movies downstairs.  They have also done piles of laundry (That's one of their main summer jobs this year) and made treats with me.  Of course their have been moments of boredom too, but they mostly don't mention that because I might give them more jobs.

It has been a busy, happy summer so far, and these are some good boys.

In My Pretty Garden ....

...the herbs are growing

...The vegetable plants are getting bigger
...The path is pretty
...the flowers are nodding

...and a cute little bunny appears to startle us every now and then.  It is brown with a white cotton tail.  We don't know where it came from, and we haven't seen it for a few days, so maybe it moved on to eat plants in another garden.  Hopefully it wandered back to some friendly owners who were happy to see it.
