July 4th, 2012

Here is one last look at summer 2012.  These were taken at our church's July 4th picnic.  

How many girls can fit into a kiddie pool?!  Johanna is second from left.

Sam and swinging friend.

The kids memorized and recited "Paul Revere's Ride" in honor of the holiday. 

So with that reminder of the days of heat, humidity and heavenly freedom, we turn ourselves toward autumn.

Urban Farming

One of the big trends these days is urban farming.  Vegetable gardens, chicken coops, berry patches: all of these are springing up in urban settings, places where kids sometimes don't know where milk comes from, let alone veggies and eggs.

Well, never ones to let a trend pass us by - we're nothing if not trendy - John and I have taken urban farming to a whole new level.  We put up our own crop of hay!

Now we just need a cow.
