Cross Country

Josh joined the Cross Country team this year.  I am so proud of him!  He stuck it out even though it wasn’t really his favorite thing.  He always tried hard and he improved so much.  It was so fun watching him run at meets with his good buddy Ethan.  I’m so glad he tried something…

EFY, and German Schofields

This summer is NON-STOP.  A week after returning from Yellowstone, Halle and I flew to Utah.  She was headed to BYU for EFY.  We flew in on a friday so we’d have a few days to spend with the Schofields before they left on to follow their dreams in Berlin!  A few days before we…

Hampton Court Palace and Maze

Today we were off to Hampton Court Palace.  We took the train and were there in about 30 minutes.  This was a favorite palace of King Henry VIII and I was excited to see it.  It was unlike any royal residence we’d seen so far.  They’ve kept it feeling very medieval and I loved it! …
