We're Off to the Fair!

We had a lot of fun at the county fair. Daddy spent the afternoon working in the Dairy Women's ice cream booth to earn money for the school while the kids and I did some exploring.

Yes, Ethan is milking a fake cow.
Our favorite part of the day was watching the draft horses compete. This group has one named Emma and one named Grace.

Playing in the box.

We recently bought a new patio set. Well this meant we got a really big box. Of course we had to turn it into a house.

I love this picture of Emma. Not many people see the silly side of her. I don't remember why she was laughing so hard. Isn't it beautiful!

Referral Update

The CCAA website has been updated for this batch of referrals. They are now up to November 14, 2005. They made it through another 7 days. If they continue to go 7 days at a time, with a LID of December 26, 2005, we will see a referral in Jan/Feb of 2008. Here's praying they will speed up!

Happy 4th of July!

We went to the annual 4th of July parade in Hillsboro. We've been going for about ten years. Here are the kids waiting for it to start.

This is Ethan's friend Jake chugging a soda before the parade.

Thank you to all the soldiers who make our freedom possible. May God continue to bless our country and may we strive to put Him first.

Going to Grandma & Grandpa's

This last weekend we went to Grandma & Grandpa's house to celebrate an early 4th of July. While we were there we met our newest niece Reanon who was adopted by my oldest brother and his wife. She's the tall blonde behind the wagon.

Kevin, my brother Matt's youngest, just woke up from his nap. Isn't he cute!

My parents had a tree fall on their house in December so the landlord decided to cut down some of the other ones around the house.

My dad and the kids climbed on top of the tree. Just for a reference my dad is around 6'2".
