We'll probably do some more lessons before the summer is through. We even got some good family practice in the drive-way on a couple of evenings.
Our family adopted a flower bed in one of our city parks (actually it's 3 circles around a stone structure). We get to pick the flowers we want and a local greenhouse donates them. We have to take care of it throughout the summer. It's been fun, the girls did a lot of the work. Plus they are really proud of the sign:
The nights this past week have been great...long walks (mom/dad) bikes for the girls. Jacob and Uncle Dan took the girls fishing one night to a pond in our neighborhood...and we finished the night with the first official smores of summer.
Last night, when we were having the girls clean up their messes from the day, Jacob mentioned a trip to Dairy Queen. Those girls have never cleaned up so fast! At about 9:00 pm we rolled into DQ. On our way home we saw our first fireflies...although there was only one to catch in our yard. Windows stayed open for sleep...with the girls complaining that the croaking frog outside was keeping them awake!

In the picture, Jacob is wearing a grey and black fleece. Hannah is next to him in a light blue fleece, but you can only see her elbow.
Oh, here's a link to the captains log of that day. That's no typo...1500 common dolphins! It was spectacular...and all the more so for my 9 year old dolphin lover. As we floated through that pod, she laid down on the front of the boat and commented that she "felt like she was swimming with them!" Awesome indeed!
