Sally had a great time at summer camp. She barely missed us, but she'll tell you she missed Dad and Mom alot. Don't believe it. We got one letter while she was gone - addressed to Sam and containing two sentences - which we received three days after she got home. I don't feel bad about it - that's the way camp should be. Fun and busy and barely time to miss anyone because you are either having a ball or fast asleep.
Sam had two weeks of VBS (two different churches) and he had a great time. I would like to be able to tell you that I got loads of things done while the kids were off learning about the bible, but that would be far from the truth. I did read some books this summer, and I've been knitting (of course). Mostly I was catching up from being gone for a week - I took the kids and went to visit my sister and her family. We had a really nice time together.
Sally had a soccer tournament this past weekend, so we spent several hours on Saturday and Sunday watching her team play games. Although they didn't win, their last game was a good one - the teams were well matched and both scored a few goals - and it's always fun to watch a good soccer game. I got really sunburned on Saturday, so on Sunday I geared up with lots of sunscreen, a hat, an umbrella, and I sat in the shade at all times.
Today I took the kids to the beach. They love Laguna Beach because of the tidepools there. We went early in the morning, and it was nice and overcast. I sat on my blanket (big hat, long sleeves, covered up with a sarong) and watched them play together in the ocean. When they get along, they are darling wonderful children. See?
This is where we like to park - by the Laguna Beach Lawn Bowling Club:
And check it out - a parking meter that takes VISA!
That's a new one for me.
