summer happenin's

This summer has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. I've never been one for change. So moving out of my home, that I love has been hard. Waiting for the house to sell and wondering if it will ever happen. Everyone who's been through it can attest..that it's no fun. But in the meantime, we are trying our best to just have fun this summer. Luckily i've moved close to some amazing family and it's been fun to get together with them. Last week I signed the boys up for soccer. Neither of them had ever played. The last day I thought I would show up early and take some pictures...here's what I found. (You may have to click on picture)


Every picture I took had Cole standing around, picking his nose or pulling his jersey over his head. Soccer is not his thing. We're still searching for "his thing". Jacob on the other hand loved soccer and was quite the "Star."

Malia took a hip-hop class at the YMCA. She is now ready to dance at weddings, birthdays, etc. Just give us a call to book a show.

Friday night we went camping at Lake Coeur d'Alene with the other brothers (refers to all of Brents family in the area...which in case you are curious, consists of a mom, three brothers and a sister) The kids had a great time playing with cousins, but we had to pack up early the next morning and head to Schweitzer mountain because brent's work was having a "get-together" there. We rode the chair lift up to the top of the mountain and looked around. Amazing views. We ate at an overpriced restaurant, hiked and picked huckleberries. Again the views were amazing...but if we could do it again I think we would have stayed in Coeur d'Alene and waterskiied with the family. Oh well, you learn! That evening we ate our huckleberries with waffles and whipped cream. Yum! One thing I can say about huckleberries is it's a lot of work for little reward. I'll stick with blueberries.


When looking through all of the pictures, the best ones were all taken by Malia. I may have to hand over picture taking duty to her permanently.

It's so hard so move :(
But, I bet you're playing rook ALL THE TIME NOW!!!

I love Coeur d'Alene (but I don't love spelling it). One of the first places that scenery actually took my breath away.

I, too, am dreading the house-selling saga. We're still making a few repairs to ours before we list it. I keep telling myself that at least I don't have to try and keep it clean all the time with kids messing it up right behind me, since we aren't actually living in it. Count your blessings where you can find them, right?

So good to have an update from you! Yep, the Dittos do know how to play hard. What a test of patience you are being asked to go through!
