Tony and Abby

Tony is so handsome.

He looks so much like Abby but has his father's temperament.

He loves watching the children play.

Abby finally looking herself again.

Tony is helping Dawson with the sidewalk chalk...he and Abby both enjoy eating sidewalk chalk for some reason!

Our Mountain Vacation

Bayleigh loves "the ponies."

Dawson enjoying a cool down with the most exspensive popsicle I have ever bought.

The caverns had a strange effect on Dawson!

Down town Blowing Rock. We ate at a cool pizza parlor.

Bayleigh with her baby goat...she talked to it like it was one of our puppies.

Lineville Cavern

Adult Teeth!

My sister, my pal.

Can we please stop posing for pictures!

Gena posing in front of a huge rock flow formation...we named giant pickle.

We had a wonderful time! We stayed in a great cabin, that one of Chris' clients so graciously let us use. The boys loved shooting their bb guns and going on trails, and I loved rocking away on the front porch. Chris had to drag me to the van when it was time to leave!

School in the corner :)

This is my little corner of the world. Chris made me a frame for our marker board and now we have cork strips to hang our history and bible timeline cards up and grammar posters. On the other wall we have our ancient map up, to which we add a yellow medallion that corresponds with each card we study. The kids are enjoying school and learning a ton already. Today they learned how to use a dictionary and the meaning of Antonyms and Synonyms. They reminded me that it was time for lunch around 1:30! :)

The new hair do!

I have removed the bad hair day pictures, at my husband's request, and wanted to post the new cut and ear rings for grandma to see.
