The "save the blog" post

In case anyone still reads here, I'll note that all members of the family are growing and thriving:).

We're loving life in the country.  I need to put up a recent picture.  That dark haired baby in the picture below has grown into a blonde headed little one year old who walks everywhere and tries to talk about everything.

For safe keeping...

I need to slap up a new post or risk loosing this blog.  I've heard of people taking a year long hiatus and ZAP! - there goes years of record keeping.  I probably need to print it. 

New news, for those who don't read our new blog, we're expecting another baby around New Years.  It's another girl!  We're thrilled and can't wait to meet her.  The other half dozen kids around here are all doing great.  I'll post a fall picture of them sometime soon.

Pictures by mistake:)

These pictures were meant to be posted on our other blog but I didn't check my settings in my hurry and now I don't feel like going through the headache of moving them so here they are.

They're from our most recent camping trip to Cloudland Canyon with family friends.
This was Karys' drive-thru restaurant. We ordered food and payed her with leaves. She fed us mulch.



There goes Silas.







Karys and Evelyn on the playground. And that's Noah relaxing on the jungle gym.







Silas and Huddy building something.







Playing cards.







They met another home school family and the kids all got along great. Lynn, if you're reading this, contact me and I'll send you some more pictures of your kids.




A really cool old car (which pulled an equally cool tiny camper).






Hiking





























Posted by Picasa
On Saturday, we hiked the rim of the canyon.

This is a four mile hike with some unbelievable views.



It was really, really bright at high noon so the pictures are washed out. I need a circular polarizer for this lens. It would have helped. The colors were fab. I wish they showed up better in the pictures.

























They were all sitting in a tree.

I hate posting pictures of myself on camping trips but at least it shows that I was there, right?

Karys wanted to be carried for the entire 4 miles. Most of the time, Daddy was the cart and if I was near, she was crying "Help me! Help! Mommy!" See that pitiful little face? Every time we would say "wow, you're heavy. My arms are sure tired" she would say "it'll be alright. You're not tired". :):):).

While the boys played disc golf, the girls stayed back at camp. We did dishes and the little girls painted rocks.





and set them up to dry in the sun.


Then we made caramel apples.
