A Productive Summer

    Well, we have had another wonderful summer, with lots of adventures and hard work!  Ronnie decided to take us to Hemlock Cliffs, where he did some repelling in the Army.  It was a wonderful day of hiking and climbing!!  The kids thought it was the greatest day ever!



Time for a rest
Eagle's Nest in Cannelton

The Locks & Dam

Here comes a barge!!!
      A family friend offered to take a few of us up in a small airplane.  Derek decided to stay on the ground with me.

Here's our house from above!
     Lindsay turned 8 this summer.  We had a wonderful birthday swimming party for her.  Several of her friends came and swam and ate cake and ice cream!

     Lindsay also learned to ride a bike without training wheels!!  Her best friend Lil' C then took her training wheels off her bike.  Very Exciting!!

   We also worked very hard on freezing corn and canning pickles!!  I had my friend Nikki over and we worked together freezing enough corn for both families.  

This cat ended up eating almost 6 ears of corn!!

An outdoor kitchen, on a warm day.

Many hands make light work.

Cooper ate almost as much as the cat!

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
 1 Corinthians 15:58
