Day 82

August 27th, 2011

So much for the childproof kids lock on the game cupboard.  The kid it was intended for figured it out.  

Day 81

August 26th, 2011

Today we met our friends the Fosters at the Oregon City kids pool (the last day for the summer, as it closes tomorrow).  They boys took a break to watch a movie on Lucinda's phone.    

Day 80

August 25th, 2011

The kids and I went out to run errands, we came home to find Grandma Tuttle filling up our livingroom with her stuff.  I quickly transfered the stuff to the garage so we could have our livingroom back.  

Day 79

August 24th, 2011

Today we went hiking and on a picnic at McIver Park in Oregon City with Grandpa Tuttle and some friends.  We'd never been there before, such a pretty place!  

Day 78

August 23nd, 2011

I was in the kitchen and I heard a Jadon cry in the pantry.  I looked and found him stuck on the shelves.  

Day 77

August 22nd, 2011

We went to visit our friends the Fosters to exchange homeschooling ideas.  I saw this shelf above their kitchen sink and had to snap a shot because I LOVE it!

Day 76

August 21th, 2011

I got piles of cucumbers from gleaners and decided to make pickles.  I guess we won't know how they turned out for a least a few months.   

Day 75

August 20th, 2011

This evening we went to the stake luau.  Jadon insisted on carrying his own chair.  

Day 74

August 19th, 2011

Tonight we had the missionaries over for dinner.  One of them (from Utah) was carrying around what looked like a package.  He told me it was his scripture cover.  He made it out of boxes and packaging tape; it's waterproof because it rains a lot here in Oregon.    

Day 73

August 18th, 2011

Jolie and Jadon wanted to eat their breakfast outside and have a picnic.  


August 17th, 2011

I came home from running errands and found Jadon having a good time getting into the peanut butter.

Day 71

August 16th, 2011

Jolie was running around in the grass with bare feet.  She stepped on a bee.  It's her first bee sting.  She kept her cook and just pulled the stinger out herself.

Day 70

August 15th, 2011

I went in the guest room to kiss Jolie and Jaren before they fall asleep for nap and I found Jadon giggling in the middle of them.   

Day 69

August 14th, 2011

The kids were so excited to help Grandma open her birthday gift.  Jadon thought it was his.  I don't think he'd enjoy or have any use for a pressure cooker.   

Day 68

August 13th, 2011

This morning the 4 older kids attended a stake pioneer activity.  They picked berries, made dolls, played pioneer games and hauled a handcart.    

Day 67

August 12th, 2011

This is what I found in Jadon's pants this afternoon - berries.  

Day 66

August 11th, 2011

Today we made a quick trip to the grocery store.  I didn't get a cart and let the kids walk.  Jadon, unbenonswed to me picked an apple off the stand and started eating it right in the store.  

Day 65

August 10th, 2011

Jolie and our sweet, pretty little neighbor and friend Shayla.  

Day 64

August 9th, 2011

Finally, we made it to the outside Oregon City kids pool.  Jude LOVES it!  He's actually swimming here.  

Day 63

August 8th, 2011

We returned home and watched this bird, squirrel and cat frolic in our neighbors yard.    

Day 62

August 7th, 2011

Grandpa Graham and Jadon checking out our house on Google Earth.

Day 61

This morning Jaren and his scout troup were in the Chatauqua parade riding this cool fire truck.  Pictured left to right are Jaren Kenner, Jaren Foster, Damien Foster and Jaren Graham. 

Day 60

August 5th, 2011

Today we did our tradition of walking to the annual chautauqua fastival library sale and loaded up on books.    

Day 59

August 4th, 2011

Today Jolie lost ANOTHER tooth thanks to Jenea who bumped her accidently when they were roller blading.  

Day 58

The best place to eat breakfast, the refrigerator!
