Thankfully we do not live where there are wildfires. This year it is so hot and dry it does not take much to set off a fire and for it to get big fast.  Unfortunately a few boys down the road learned that lesson the hard way this week.  They were playing with bottle rockets without permission and set the field in front of their house on fire.  Thankfully they did get it out with only a 4-5 acre area burned.  It was very close to being very bad.

TGBC preschoolers creek stomping

Yesterday our friends from our church before we moved to the country came for a day of fun. We were going to do creek stomping, but the creek was dry.  Had fun playing in the backyard. The temps were cooler so it was the perfect day.

Summer Fun!

Summer has finally arrived.  This year I was soooooo ready for school to end.  It has really been a struggle this year.  We spent the morning in our new pool.  It is a great size. Sarah can touch the bottom so she enjoys it more.  We just got it this weekend and assembled it on Sun, so the water is still very cold!  Elijah has been in it all day.  The rest of us only lasted an hour.  He swam yesterday as it was filling up too.  Hope you have a fun filled summer.
