Summer Update

Hi all. Despite trying not to be too scheduled this summer, we are still busier than I'd like.

The kids have each gone to a week long summer camp, and now we are in the middle of swim lessons. These are in Kuna, making my life much easier! So many things we do are in Meridian or Boise, and we drive all the time to get everywhere. Sometimes, ok, most of the time, I feel like I want to move to the BIG city and walk everywhere, from school to cafes and work. That would be so nice......alas, I live in Kuna!

The hot weather just hit a few days ago and it feels awful. I prefer cooler temps. I am seem to be somewhat pessamistic this morning. Sorry. Let's see if I can report something positive.....

My supervisor at work has created a permanent position for me, and is in the process of rolling me over from my temp agency to EDS. It will take a few months to get through the process.

We did not make it to Salmon for the 4th., something we've done for several years now. Both Jeff and I had to work the 3rd and 4th. We still had a great time with the boys and the fireworks! The boys got absolutely stoked and examined the fireworks for days before. Isaac would read the directions on each one over and over to Benjamin! While Jeff was lighting them, Isaac would inform Jeff how it was to be done!! Afterward, we all layed out on the back lawn looking at stars and fireworks.

Today the boys and I are headed to a berry farm where we will pick raspberries and blueberries which we will use to make freezer jam, and pancakes, muffins, etc. We are going with our good friend Eva and her troop of kids (4!). How is she not at Saint Al's mental ward?

Jeff and I are going to Reno for a short weekend in Oct. October seems very far away this morning....have a great
