During this past school year, Merit's teacher (Mrs. Hall - knowledgable, wonderful, energetic) treated the children who returned their homework - to donuts. Merit came home that Friday afternoon so excited!
He said "I ate a caramel donut today and it was SOO good!" I wasn't sure what a caramel donut was, but later discovered it is otherwise known as a maple bar. Since that day, bagels are bagels and donuts are donuts and today Merit requested a caramel donut as I left for Safeway. Kids are funny.
A part of me wants to freeze the sweetness, curiousity and cuddle bunny I see in Hazel Jane. She is SUCH a sweetie! Willem and Merit adore her, in fact Willem plays with her so much it is such a sweet help to me.
Our 4th of July was great, but our 3rd of July was even better. The weather was perfect on the third and we blew off our fireworks that night. The kids loved it!! Vance took the boys golfing yesterday. That was a highlight.

We are crazy about Rudy. She has taken good care of
all of our babies. What a sweet old dog she is.

I love love being with my brothers and sisters. Why?
1) Because they are fun, funny and easy to get along with.
2) Each of them reminds me a little bit of my mom, each in a different, wonderful way.

entertained and content.
