Coach & son:)


Swim season was in full swing. This year, Ezra moved up to the 9/10 year olds and did well, still in the “point” heats even though he was only 9.

It all clicked for Tobin, Ethan got him breathing at the side and he actually won 2 races at one of the meets!  Looking forward to him still being able to swim “8 & under” next year:)

Cousins playing 4 square


And, our garden flourished!  We had more dill than you could believe, I guess this butterfly liked it.

Check out the beans!  Our neighbor girl would come over and harvest with me:)

At this picture, we still weren’t sure what this was.  I had planted melon but the fruit growing seemed too big – more on that in later posts


And, once again, the tomatoes and carrots were great, even with the later start.140730_GardenHarvest_026

And, that wraps up another month:)
