The end of Bible school

Well, Olivia has finished all of her Vacation Bible Schools for the summer. Olivia has been on the "friendship Trek" and "surfed her way through the scriptures" this summer.

We realized summer is about half over now. That excites us and makes us sad. We went to Dairy Queen after Bible School to celebrate and Olivia had a sundae the size of her head. OH MY! Orren had a good deal of ice cream as well. He thought that was very good. I cannot wait until next Friday when he will have his first birthday cake and be a year old.

Olivia received her FIRST PLACE certificate in the Desoto's Coloring Contest( a place down at the Gulf where Mom and Dad often frequent to eat). She gets her meal comped the next time she comes! She has on this once before and she is very "proud" to have won a second time.

We are saddened to hear of the death of a great journalist today, Tim Russert. We have watched him on Meet the Press every week for years. The news world will be left with a void because of his death.

Lots of storms and rain AGAIN, today. Perhaps it will soon clear up.

Olivia has issued a challenge to us that she get 5 dollars for every book she reads this summer. She got the idea from her little friend Joey today. So we will see how much money she earns by August 10!

We will home school again, we just love being together all day. She is just happier at home with us.

Orren just has no interest in walking. If we try he just gets down on all fours and scoots. He is so fast!

This is what Joe wants for Father's Day. Gee I wonder if he will get it? If so we will have our own movies in the park.

Well, for now we have Friday Night flicks in the park at the park. It will be wet! I need to go get everything together! Love to all
