we've been busy!

If it's been awhile since I've blogged, you can just assume we've been busy! After completing our first two weeks of school, we took a vacation. (Ahhh, the beauty of homeschooling...) We spent a great week in Chelan. We were blessed by my parents who are always so gracious in welcoming us into their home (and it can be very chaotic at times!). We were blessed by grandma and grandpa who took the kids school clothes shopping and bought them tons of great things. We were blessed with one last trip to the waterslides and a few last dips in the pool. It was great.

Back home, Patrick and I celebrated our 17th anniversary. We took some cheezy self-portraits before we headed out on a wonderful date.

And he made me a very sweet card for the occasion. (I LOVE that he makes all my cards.)

The kids both started their soccer season. Liam scored a goal on his very first game! Woo-hoo!

Then today Audrey and I headed to Seattle to hang out with Courtney, Kelly, Jonah and Papa for the day. We had a great time taking in some of the tourist hot-spots. Kelly is moving soon to Virginia (WAY too far away!) so this was our last visit with her before she leaves. Oh - I'm going to miss her!

I love my silly family! I told them to 'act natural' for this one.

The "action" shot is absolutely US. You may try to make your friends think your family is "normal", but we bring a whole new meaning to the word. Love you, Dad

Oh my goodness, that card is the sweetest thing I have EVER seen. Wow...what else can I say? Ryan's gonna have to see that for sure!
