Much Needed Vacation

We have had a terribly busy summer with Peter painting the house then going to Africa. The month of June flew by.

We visited Peter's parents last week in Georgia and took the kids to Chattanooga to play at the waterfront park. The next day we decided to return to visit the Chattanooga Choo Choo because Stone is very much fixated with trains. HE LOVED IT!! It was so cute to see his grin as we rode the trolley on the grounds. We will have to return and do it again because the kids loved it. At Christmas, Santa's elves tuck you in at night if you stay in the hotels or train cars. Hannah has told be all about it!

Stone learned to ride a bicycle at their house too -- it is so funny because he is barely 2!! He thinks he is something!

Hannah read for 5 hours so far this summer and earned a "gold" medal. She is thrilled. Alot of the reading occurred on vacation as well. She will begin swim lessons this week. She swims crazy dog paddling style. She makes it across the olympic size pool but looks like she is drowning the whole way! I hope these lessons help.

Lauren has the cutest tan lines on her bottom. I love it! And her smiles and curls can take your breath away. She says, "You are my best mom ever."

Now, we are planning a funfilled weekend at the beach this 4th of July weekend. Maybe even go to some plantations near the house.

Tonight we went to help construct the interior of our church plant's newly leased facility. Now it is time for bed!
