 I have been absent from blogging for a long, long time, but I wanted to update you a bit on our summer so far.  We went to Great Wolf Lodge in Cincinnati for a long weekend with my parents in June.  We then went on to spend a day at Kings Island by ourselves.  It was a lot of fun!  Hot, but fun!


Bobby and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary this year by going to Hocking Hills in Logan, OH.  We stayed in a lovely cabin for 2 nights, did a zipline tour tour (so cool), have an amazing anniversary dinner at The Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls, where we stayed, and did some hiking around the area.  It is the first time we've been away more than 24 hrs by ourselves since Rebekah was born, nearly 8 yrs ago.  It was fabulous!

Silly Sarah

While on our way to the Roscoe Village Apple Butter Stirring Festival, we passed the Longaberger basket headquarters which looks like a big basket. From the back seat, Sarah said,
"How did God make that?!?"

Leah Pauline


This morning, while I was doing dishes, Leah was the only one up. She had one of her many baby dolls on the bench of the kitchen table. She was leaning over it, whispering it the baby's ear, "I'm right here, I'm right here." So sweet and nurturing. And yet, last week, in the car, she was spanking her frog that she calls Kermit.

Sarah Catherine


Sarah, very enthusiastically, after making herself a sandwich after swimming tonight:

"What's better than a sandwich?...............NOTHING!"

Rebekah Janae


Bekah: Mommy, we need to get my school supplies! We only have like 5 days....

Me: Bekah, we have more than 5 weeks.


I guess she's excited for school to start back up already.
