Blogging Vacation...apparently

Oh my. Where have I been? Where have YOU been? Are we all still here, having a good summer?

And if so . . . will you bring me ice cream?

(Actually I've been making these fruit slushes--holy moly, so good. Our kids and the neighbor boys flip for them. I'll post the recipe on my cooking blog soon.)

You will be happy to know that the pigeons are gone. We hired an exterminator. We paid an outrageous amount of money for the privilege of living Poncho-free but oh boy, it is so nice to have a clean, quiet driveway again.

This month . . . oh what a month. Some happenings included Tyce's birthday; Independence Day; a trip to Utah for Kess's baptism, baby Natasha's blessing, and Tyce's ordination; Bryce's birthday; attending the much-anticipated sealing of the Urbancic's baby;  Tyce's trip to Texas; taking and picking up Tyce from daily football practice; entertaining (and being entertained by) cousin Ben (age 14) for a week; another trip to Utah to drop Tyce off at EFY; and various running around to swimming pools and free movies and making slushes for all to enjoy.

And Mary, Bryce, and I have been playing Settlers of Catan at night.
Oh, and I registered the boys for kindergarten.

So that's what we've been up to. And now my blogging vacation is over.

Very cute picture of the family...

Your summer sounds as busy as ours has been. Why is it we wait and wait for the summer to get here and then when it does we pack so many things in it goes by too fast and the next thing we know it is Christmas.... Hope you are having some ME time in there somewhere and enjoying yourself!!!

You HAVE been busy. Aren't you glad you don't have ten kids??? But just think of it as making memories. It's all good.
