Whirlwind of a Month!

Have you missed us? Have you even noticed we were gone? This has been a very busy time for us with the student leadership training, registration, orientation, and all the includes. When you take that, and add that our computer broke (again) that leaves no time to fix the computer, and then no time to blog!
Whether you missed us or not, I sure missed blogging! I can't believe I still have pictures from Fair havens to post. I have a ton of great ones, but I will leave it at these. No need for it to be December, and you are still reading about our vacation in July!
Thanks to all you loyal readers who have let me know it was time I updated!
Ben and Josh. No they are not Oakley models.

Addie made it to the top! What a trooper! That was a much bumpier ride than we thought it would be.

I love this picture of Ben. It looks like it would be on the back of some great photography book that he had published. Ben, when you publish a photography book, you have my permission to use this photo. :)

The best of the attempts at a family photo.

I thought this was hilarious! We were just trying to get a picture of the three girls on a big rock. Seems simple enough. The Curry and Snyder families had no troubles. Well, this says it all. I LOVE Emma's "Good Grief" face. Oh, and also that Ken is hiding behind Addie so she won't fall! Good times!

Fishing at Fair Havens

Sorry it has taken me so long to post. I was having problems finding the pictures on our computer. I am definitely not a computer geek.
While we were in Tennessee, Josh took Emma out fishing with Uncle Ben and Aunt Emily while I put Josie and Addie to bed. Em was able to catch these great shots of Emma's first fish!
Casting: it's not as easy as it looks...It's much easier. Don't tell Emma I said so!

Is there a tug? Reel him in Emma!

Here is Emma with her prize catch! When she was telling me about it that night she said "Momma, I don't know why, but I was so excited that it made me cry!". That melted my heart.

Time to throw him back in.

I just had to add this picture. Apparently this duck was so obnoxious and followed Ben around all evening. Ha!

Thanks again Emily for taking these pictures for me. Makes me feel like I was there. :)
