Science Fair Projects

4th grade had their science fair yesterday. It was fun to go and see all the creative ideas. Chuck spent his time helping students who did their projects with him.

A gym of 150 9 and 10 year olds (boys) can be really stinky!

Tooth Fairy Chronicles

Turns out our tooth fairy is WAY less generous than all of Eli's friends' tooth fairies. I am shocked by how generous other fairies are and by how frugal ours is! (good thing we set up the 'motion detector camera' to catch her

Hocking Hills

I think we picked the hottest day of the year to go hiking at Hocking Hills. We had visited there for the first time when my sister, Cindy, and her husband, Ryan, came last month. It was nice to be able to take the kids there for the day. Abby is usually very cautious, so it surprised me to look over and see her standing at the edge of the cliff overlooking a BIG drop off. The kids had a wonderful time. I came home with poison ivy rashes up and down my legs. Nice!

Dear Locks of Love,

Please take this from Abby. She has been working on getting this to you for over a year.

I could not be happier to see it go!

Abby was lucky enough to spend a week down in Georgia with her cousins Chloe and Phoebe last week. She hadn't been home in more that ten days and was completely fine with that. She is quite and independent little girl. Chuck and Eli went to pick her up on Saturday. They took three days to drive down to Tennessee where they were meeting Uncle Ryan, the girls and Abby at an ice cream factory. On the way down they stopped in Virginia and in the Smoky Mountains to camp, hike and fish. I was sad to miss out on such a great adventure, but it was nice to have a small break to work on the house and read before I started my summer school courses.
