What We've Been Up To in the Summer of 2012

This summer was the first in 5 years that we took
a significant break from school.
We decided to take all of July and August off
to give plenty of time to work in the garden.
Obviously, we took time to do a lot
of other fun things, too!
We shopped with friends!
Played outside!
Went to the zoo!

Gabriel went mobile!
Hung out with friends.
Recovered from hand surgeries.

And celebrated 4 birthdays!
Mary Grace turned 11.
Hannah, my baby our oldest turned 16.

Joshua turned 13.

Micah turned 3.

Micah's birthday was spent in the mountains!

We had a blast in the Smokies!

And just watched in utter amazement at how our kids keep growning and learning. . . .
Oh, and I've spent a lot of time filling out paperwork for our 2 new sweeties. . . . :)
It's hard to believe that next summer they will be home with us!!!
