Busy Summer

It seems like its been forever since I've been on here. I've been busy but not busy enough not to blog. I think I have a case of writer's block!

We've been swimming, swimming and swimming. I told Stephen the other day that our next house is going to have to have a pool in the backyard. I love it! My lips, however, not so much. I have had a fever blister (or 9) every week this summer. As much as I like to blame Samuel's leaving for camp on them, I know better. It's the sun.

Samuel survived Boy Scout camp. He didn't want to go but did "just for you Mom". Gotta love the teenage years! He ended up having a great time and is even thinking of working there next year for a couple of weeks. His last night at camp he had to hike a couple of miles, fix his supper, find & construct his shelter, and sleep. BY HIMSELF! Oh my! He loved it! The next morning he woke up, hiked back down and swam a mile all before breakfast. I'm thinking of calling home "Boy Scout Camp" from now on. None of the kids do anything before breakfast!!!

David and Daniel are having fun this summer as well. They have enjoyed being the oldest sons when Sam was gone and we have really enjoyed spending time with them. They are so very funny!

Anna is the princess of course. She is so pretty and sweet. Funny and cute. I could eat her up.

So, how's it going with you? Are you having a fun summer?
