Sliced onion and fennel. Sauté in olive oil until tender. Add a few of the fennel leaves at the end. All parts of the fennel is edible, but we generally just eat the bulb and a few of the leaves. The stalk can be tough. Put in bottom of a roasting pan. Using same skillet brown chicken on both sides then place on top of onions and fennel. Add grape tomatoes and a cup of chicken broth. Cover and cook at 400 for 30min-1hour depending on the cut of chicken you use.
The brussel sprouts I sautéed in olive oil until browned then I put in oven until cook through. About 15 min.
Everyone here cleaned their plates.

Grandma has taken a picture of all the grandkids at about 1.5-2 years of age in a tree in her yard. The original tree died, but we picked a new tree and continued the tradition. While we were at her house this last time, it was Isaac’s turn to get his picture taken. I did not plan this, but I had him in the same outfit that I had Elijah in! Here are a few different angles of Isaac:
Here are the other 2 in their tree pictures:
Isaac is actually the oldest of the 3 in his picture, but the smallest! Elijah was 17 months, Sarah was 15 months and Isaac is 19 months. The tree has also grown so that adds to the illusion that Isaac is much smaller!
A little late in posting, but last week Elijah had closing ceremonies for baseball. It was VERY hot, but we made it through his division and then headed for the air condition. So glad they finished their games before the heat wave. He really enjoyed baseball and made tremendous strides this year. I was very proud of him. He was given the coach’s award and got a team trophy. His team also came in fourth overall.

Our town has a Stars, Stripes, and Squirt guns parade for the fourth of July each year. The kids love it and have a blast trying to squirt the float riders, who are also armed with squirt guns. Sarah did not make it to the end due to overheating, so Isaac, Sarah and I finished out the parade in the air conditioned van. I think it is time to look into a cooling vest for Sarah. She misses so much of the fun. There was a music video that used an ally off from town to film a western scene. I was able to get a few pictures of my posse. I think on a cooler day we need to go back and get some cool pictures.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!! THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE/ARE SERVING TO GIVE US THE FREEDOM WE ENJOY AND CELEBRATE TODAY!!
